There are some great options when it comes to meeting low-grade panels for DIY customer’s needs.
Discount Materials to Sell Locally
In an increasingly competitive landscape, local retailers need to be nimble and creative. The strength of a smaller company’s footprint lies in the customer relationships it builds. Providing customers with a wide range of products at the best prices is key.
The vast majority of the many smaller building materials retail stores are in less populated areas, targeting clients who are likely more rural and have larger lots with a variety of activities and building materials needs. These retailers know they are providing the goods used to make things like outbuildings, sheds, chicken coops, cattle guards, and windbreaks. But many retailers don’t know that they can buy OSB board or plywood at much cheaper prices and pass those savings along to their customers.
A Win-Win for Everyone
Buying low-grade siding, OSB, or plywood is a win-win situation for the retailer and their customer. While these products are not covered under warranties, utility panels are much less expensive and often have very little noticeable difference from the construction grade panel you’d buy at a big-box retailer. For a customer that needs an economical outbuilding or good solid trailer skirting this is perfect. They can easily work around small imperfections in the board and get the same performance.
Local retailers who stock discount building materials can go a long way toward maintaining the loyalty of their valued customers. Providing an affordable alternative such as low-grade panels for DIY customers to build cheap outbuildings, chicken coops, and barn interiors is the key to keeping clients happy and still turning a profit.
