Your number one local supplier
The expert building supplier on your doorstep
Welcome to Chards Building Supplies
Chards was originally founded in 1923 as H.J Chard & Sons, only rebranding to Chards Building Supplies in 2016 after the business was acquired by Concrete Fabrications Ltd (the parent company of Bowland Stone). We stock thousands of product lines from drainage systems & safety equipment to landscaping materials & timber.
We work hard to continue to bring you high quality products at competitive prices, with our bulk buy rates even better, so make sure to give us a call if you think you’ll need more!
You’ll also find that our minimum quantities start much lower than most other suppliers do, so ensure you speak to our team to discuss your requirements. We will always do our very best to deliver what you need, within time and budget.
We pride ourselves on our high standards of customer service and our expert team’s extensive knowledge of the industry, which is why they are available to assist you in store or over the phone.
As a part of our customer service enhancement programme, we even have our very own accurate weighbridge on site. This is a free service to all customers who are required to have their vehicle weighed.
We welcome trade-collect customers, or you can utilise our excellent delivery services (with same and next day delivery available on request*) inside a 20 mile radius.

Weighbridges are at the heart of many construction projects. We have a weighbridge specifically for our customers, with accuracy from 10kg to 30 tonnes. This service is not just available for customers buying our products – for a £10 charge you can have your vehicle weighed at any time.
The loading plate
Slowly position your vehicle centrally on the loading plate and the operator will give you a thumbs up and instruction on where to go when weighing is complete.
Fill her up
Following the operator’s instructions, drive over to have your vehicle loaded and wait until completion before driving back to the weighbridge.
Once back on the weighbridge, exit your vehicle and step up to the window. Tell the operator what you’re purchasing and they will print you out a ticket and give any further instructions – finally taking payment (if required).
Once finished, simply return to your vehicle and you’re ready to start building…
