I own a small business too. This business is locally owned and the people here are a part of our community. I prefer to support our local businesses. On top of that, the products are not the run of the mill stuff you will see at every builder supply big box or even Wal-Mart. Whenever I can, I think it is better to pay a little more for a quality product and be happy with your purchase than to be a few nickles cheaper on the initial purchase and have to live with junk.
I would be cautious of buying a rehabbed, then flipped house, or anything else, from anyone or any company that sources their materials from the lowest cost, lower quality suppliers. Makes you wonder why the old saying, “you get what you pay for” is still so pertinent!
