Using Homeowner Supplied Materials
Homeowner purchased supplies are not uncommon in home remodeling projects. A homeowner will sometimes choose to go this route in order to avoid a markup from the contractor that they choose to work with. In addition, some homeowners just enjoy the experience of shopping for the products as it means a feeling of greater control over the job. Homeowner purchased supplies also have some benefit to the contractor. First, costs are reduced as the contractor does not have to procure the supplies. Further, time is saved as the contractor doesn’t have to spend time shopping. However, there is a potential fall back to using homeowner purchased supplies.
