I’m never disappointed after shopping at Bauhaus. Shopping for building materials have always been a bit of a thing for me. What places to go, what quality to get, how far to drive for it, how to get it delivered etc. Doing this right saves you a ton of money while getting it wrong can cost you fortunes.
The smaller and more local shops can be very friendly and kind, but are usually not that good in price. I have also experienced a lot of issues with returning staff. Bigger places might lack know how and well educated people to help you get what you need, but they are usually very good in price, they always have a bigger assortment.
So, where do I go? Usually big shops. My favorite is Home Depot. Sadly only available in America. If I’m in Europe, Bauhaus. Where do you go?
