Prices given here are only relative and may vary from shop to shop, from location to location and brand to brand. You will notice that we deliberately avoided the use of brand/trade names in our description, except for Portland cement and a few others. The idea is not to give any brand a particular advantage over the other. It’s ethics at work!

Generally, rates here may or may not include the integral cost of lifting and installation.

We hope you know manufacturers and distributors reserve the right to change prices without notifying us but such changes will appear on the list once verified and in the shortest possible time. You also know that suppliers are in business to make a profit. Take note that prices given do not necessarily reflect supplier’s profits. 

If you are aware of any change in price that has not reflected, kindly notify us by indicating in the comment box. We will verify and publish accordingly.

Kindly share your 2018 market survey experience of cement, nails, blocks, laterites, granites and other building materials with other readers in the comment section below…
