Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How do I save on building material through the Co-op?

Answer: By purchasing material through our Co-op’s account. To purchase building material through the Contractor’s Co-op material accounts you must have a User ID#. You receive a user ID# when you register for a login to the Contractor’s Co-op website. Once you have your User ID# look up the material supplier that you want to use  by the trade category of the project you are doing on the Business Search page. So if you are doing a painting project choose “paint” as your category. All Material Suppliers that offer paint will be displayed in the search results. Call or visit the Material Supplier you want to use and when you are ready to checkout tell the cashier you are purchasing the material through the Contractor’s Co-op account and give them your User ID#. 

Question: Does purchasing material through the Co-op account guarantee that I will save money on everything that I purchase?

Answer: No. As we collectively purchase more material through each of the Material Suppliers we negotiate better pricing with them. As our purchasing power increases our discount amounts will grow but as item prices fluctuate some item prices may not be lower than other market options.
