Building Materials Guide Lagos Nigeria - Free Building Material Tips

building materials lagos nigeria africa

Building materials guide Lagos Nigeria - The purpose of this building material guide is to provide guidelines to help home builders, both new and seasoned builders, find the right materials at the right price.

I appreciate that it's not sufficient to just have a guide. You also need to help with the exact locations where you can find these materials at a fair price.

Consequently, I have included a free materials directory where people who sell building construction materials can advertise their building materials free. You will see the directory at the bottom of this page.

The average person knows what building materials are required to build a home. Nevertheless, let's list them for the purpose of this discussion.

Virtually every home building activity and home finishing requires . . .

  • building Blocks
  • Cement
  • Sand
  • Gravel
  • Tiles
  • Paint
  • Doors
  • Door frames
  • windows and doors (wooden or aluminum)
  • Electrical wires
  • Apartment furniture or office furniture

  • Hand rails
  • Roofing Sheets
  • Iron rods
  • Ceiling boards or POP
  • Light bulbs
  • Wood and
  • Water

    Comfort materials include . . .

  • Curtains
  • Window blinds
  • Fans and
  • Air Conditioners

    Bathroom materials include . . .

  • Water heaters
  • Jacuzzi
  • Wash hand basin
  • Pipes
  • Toilet seats
  • Showers

    . . . and so on.

    The list of construction materials and materials for finishing and furnishings will grow longer and longer depending on the profile of the home owner. The above simply lists the basic items you will for home construction and completion.

    What about prices?

    Material prices vary from location to location and from season to season.

  • For example, you will find that floor and wall tiles are somewhat cheaper in large tile markets like the one at Cement bus stop along the Lagos Abeokuta Expressway Lagos than at some small markets around Lagos.

    In the same vein, you can get cement cheaper if you buy in large quantity from major cement dealers in Lagos than if you buy from retailers located all over Lagos.

    A word of caution here.

    If you stock too many building construction materials, you risk losing a good number of these materials to theft. The sad truth is this . . . a lot of construction workers and craftsmen are good at stealing materials from construction sites.

    Therefore, the more materials you have on site, the more materials you will lose because keeping track of material usage becomes a problem unless you have a dedicated resource to manage material usage.

    Bottom line.

    Look for opportunities to buy construction materials at good prices. If you get an opportunity to obtain a discount, take advantage of it. But you should balance this with the risk of possible loses that may result from stocking large quantities of materials.
