Welcome to Frome Area Building Supplies Limited


Further Update on Pricing and availability 05/10/2021

The supply situation remains challenging across all sectors of the Building Industry and still more price increases are coming through. October has and will see high volumes of price changes, including PIR Insulation, Concrete Products, Haulage charges, Fixings, Plywoods and Chipboards, Lime, Plastic Fascias, all plastic drainage and plumbing fittings, Aircrete blocks, tools, loose fencing to mention just the main ones although there are many more. The timber volumes within the Uk seem to have plateaued although there is very little sign of any reductions making it through to the market at this stage. There are further increases to come in January and again next April in the cement market as notice is coming through currently of planned price changes and this will only impact further on the cost of materials that are associated. The Haulage industry is driving some of these increases as their costs for fuel and wages rise. This will undoubtedly have an impact as we move towards the new year. 

We will always try to maintain a steady price file offering to our customers, but these are challenging times, and thus we will not be able to advise of any pending increases and any quotation we raise will only be valid for one week.  Material increases are often imposed without notice, therefore we cannot hold any price quoted for any sustained period of time.

Price increases and stock availability July 2021

It has been well publicised in the National Press that we are currently facing unprecedented volatility in the supply chain of virtually all building materials . Although we remain focused on trying to offer the best service possible to all our customers the current surge in global demand is beyond our control. We can assure all our valued customers we are doing our utmost to keep on top of the current stock situation . However , the inflationary pressures are such that we have no alternative but to pass them on in the form of price increases , some of these such as timber and plywood are occurring monthly and are very significant.

Unfortunately the current situation is likely to last throughout the reminder of 2021 and beyond , please feel free to contact our branches who will be able to offer updates on both prices and lead-times of products.



Currently we have no restrictions for visiting any of our premises.
