Retrofit ready solutions from Building Superstore

Online builders’ merchant Building Superstore, part of CMO Group plc, is seeing more multi-product orders than ever before as contractors take on varied retrofit jobs to help improve the energy-efficiency of existing homes and commercial properties.

Building Superstore’s extensive product offering is allowing contractors to source everything they need from one supplier, helping them to better manage deliveries, budgets and coordinate work on site. Demand for products such as replacement low U-value thermally-efficient windows and doors, insulation and solar roofing panels have increased significantly as a response to changing building regulations and spikes in energy fuel costs.

The weather extremes seen in recent years are also being reflected in Building Superstore’s customer buying habits. The company has seen an increase in orders from across its specialist drainage range, with a variety of products available to help improve water-management both above and below ground to limit localised flooding in garden areas. The recent storms that have battered the UK has also led to a rise in orders for replacement roof tiles and guttering, with Building Superstore also providing specialist advice on dealing with the challenges of sourcing and retrofitting new products into older properties.

Rob Martin, head of trade at Building Superstore explains: “There is a lot of work that needs to be done to improve the condition and efficiency of existing properties and this means that contractors are taking on a variety of different jobs. Sourcing multiple products from one supplier can save time and money but only if those products can be delivered in time and in the quantities required. By working directly with leading manufacturers and having robust supply chain and delivery options available, including next day on some products, we are well placed to keep up with the pace of our customers working in the retrofit and refurbishment markets.”

Building Superstore is CMO’s dedicated trade account service and offers quick and easy access to over 130,000 different products across all of CMO’s online superstores including Roofing Superstore, Insulation Superstore, Door Superstore, Tile and Floor Superstore, Drainage Superstore, Plumbing Superstore, and the recently launched Landscaping Superstore.
