Founded in 1999, BuildDirect is the innovative marketplace for purchasing and selling quality home improvement & flooring materials online.
BuildDirect co-founders wanted to simplify the home improvement industry and give the power of choice back to the homeowner and home improvement professional.
They wanted to provide those seeking to build or improve homes with an online marketplace to access the flooring products they want, at the prices they’d love, delivered on time directly to their doorstep.
And today we do just that.
Servicing North America, BuildDirect connects homeowners and home improvement professionals with sellers around the world, creating a much simpler and trusted shopping experience.
The platform offers Pro’s and Homeowners the ability to purchase various volumes of flooring products direct from Sellers.
This keeps costs low, often up to half the price found at big box stores or specialty retailers, and provides efficient direct-to-home (or jobsite) shipping of those products.
