In the dark and despairing days before the internet, embarking on a DIY project meant lots of weekend visits to home supply showrooms in hopes of finding materials that fit both style and budget. Luckily, the building supply chain has evolved for the better, and sites like offer a more direct link to manufacturers for big discounts on home renovation supplies. Have you been putting off a project because you’re short on time or money? BuildDirect helps you save on both, so your design dreams could be closer than you think.

Below Budget, Above Expectations

BuildDirect sources directly from manufacturers in order to offer top-quality home improvement products like flooring, outdoor pavers, patio furniture, siding, and countertops at prices up to 80% lower than what you’d pay offline. They also offer a generous number of free samples, top-notch customer service, and a 30-day return policy (return shipping included, phew!).

Another thing we love about BuildDirect is that they add new products to their roster every week, so the selection on offer is constantly up to date. To show off their newest products, they’ve launched Find It. Keep It.
