Stocking Your Builder Supply Outlet for the Busy Season

Local area builder supply store owners know that the busy season is just around the corner. With the warmer weather comes an influx of customers and contractors looking to start their construction projects. To ensure that you are prepared for this surge in demand, it is essential to start stocking up on materials and supplies early.

Mid-Atlantic Roofing Supply recommends these tips for stocking up your builder supply store for the busy construction season.

Assess Your Inventory

The first step in stocking up for the busy season is to assess your current inventory. Take a look at what you have in stock and determine what items are selling quickly and what items are not. This will help you identify what products you need to order more of and what products you can hold off on for a while.

Keep Your Customers in Mind

When stocking up for the busy season, it is important to keep your customers and busy area roofing and building contractors in mind. Consider what products they are likely to need and make sure that you have plenty of those products in stock. You may also want to consider offering promotions or discounts on certain products to attract new customers and retain existing ones.

Plan for Seasonal Products

In addition to stocking up on essential products, it is also important to plan for seasonal products. For example, during the summer months, customers may be looking for outdoor building materials such as decking and fencing. Make sure that you have enough of these products in stock to meet the demand.

Make a List of Essential Products

Once you have assessed your inventory and taken a long look at what your area contractors and customers are likely to need, make a list of essential products that you need to have in stock for the busy season. These products could include:

  • Commercial roofing materials
  • Asphalt shingles
  • Metal Roofing
  • Shakes & slate tiles
  • Insulation
  • Accessories
  • Fasteners
  • More…

It is important to make sure that you have enough of these products to meet the demands of your customers.
