I am building a house this year and am doing the finish carpentry myself. I am looking for a place to find some door hardware on line that is relatively inexpensive. Good quality though. Anyone have any sites to recommend?

Try going to:


I have had no dealings with any vendors listed. My husband and I are currently building a house and I will soon be needing quality hardware at a good price. I hope this helps. Nina

The internet is convenient, but not necessarily the best option for everything. You are an owner / builder. If you establish a business relationship with a local hardware supplier, you will receive good service and discounts on purchases. After all, you are going to need quite a few items. Be sure to explain the scope of your job and desire to work exclusively with this local supplier.

The ability to return or service items, have them universally keyed, etc will make your job a lot easier than waiting on shipments, then dealing with details that might be wrong. Give it a try. Set up an account at the best local builders hardware supply. You will save money, have a good selection, and most important have service and warranty from a personal business relationship you will be hard pressed to find online. How many professional builders do you think buy their materials over the internet?

You sound like you have been there and done that! I have researched almost everything over the internet that we are going to need to purchase for the house--I try to be an informed consumer. However, I have yet to purchase anything over the internet. For plumbing fixtures, I found a local supplier and purchased everything at one place; same with lighting. And, just as you said, they gave me prices that were very competitive even with those on the internet. Thanks for your comments. Maybe it will keep some of us from making decisions we will regret down the road!
