A builders’ merchants is a business that offers its customers a wide range of building materials, roofing supplies and landscaping materials. At Total Building Materials, we also trade as timber merchants and brick merchants. Our clientele in Chichester mainly comes from the commercial sector but we are here to assist homeowners and DIY enthusiasts too. Working from premises in Worthing, we source everything from bricks, timber and topsoil to specialist products such as Velux windows. We also stock tools, fittings, fixtures and anything else you might need to bring private jobs to a successful finish.
Should you need an aggregate delivery for self-build or landscaping projects in our local area, we can offer a timely and responsive service.
Choosing Total Building Materials over a DIY superstore or a website has many benefits because, first and foremost, you will be in the safe hands of a local independent business with quality products and specialist materials in stock at competitive trade prices. When you use us as builders’ merchants, timber merchants and brick merchants, you can interact with our knowledgeable team and find the right items for personal projects in the Chichester area.
Many of the sales staff at our company have prior trade experience and they receive training both inhouse, and through our branded supplier network. We often have manufacturers visiting us to teach our employees about the latest building materials, roofing supplies and landscaping materials. We can then pass on this knowledge, even to tradespeople, but we find that extra training pays off especially well when dealing with local homeowners and hobbyists.
You don't need to be a builder or a trade professional to shop with us.
If you are fitting Velux windows into a roof, or onto a dormer as part of a loft conversion, we will be able to advise you on profiles and sizes. If you visit or call to arrange an aggregate delivery, we can recommend quantities based on the size of a project so that you don’t experience an excess of wastage.
We can even recommend windows in UPVC and aluminium.
Travel from Chichester to Worthing and talk to us in person. While you are in our company, you can use your time to inspect products, view displays and seek guidance from our sales staff. Private customers are encouraged to bring their chosen installers to explore new systems and designs if they plan on using a professional team for the more complex parts of a project.
Our staff members take orders and payments, arrange deliveries and provide comprehensive assistance. Most builders’ merchants, timber merchants and brick merchants have warehouse teams supporting their trade counters who are also available to assist with loading your purchases. Here at Total Building Materials, we have operators who are licensed to drive plant and machinery.
We also have delivery drivers covering the whole of our trading area.
With orders that are too large to fit into the car, we can arrange delivery to a site or to your home by van. Should you request an aggregate delivery, we will bring out your materials, topsoil and sand using a HIAB or grab lorry.
