From plaster to paving, we've got it covered

From the screws needed to fit a shelf, right through to all the materials needed to plan a self-build, you’ll find everything you need at Youngs.

Why choose an independent builders merchant?

We're an independent builders' merchant focused on providing high-quality materials at competitive prices. Forget faceless chains and impersonal service – our team is here to help you find exactly what you need, no matter your project size or experience level.

So ditch the impersonal aisles and head to Youngs. We're not just about building materials, we're about building partnerships and turning your vision into reality.

Knowledgeable staff, with real-world experience

Many of our staff have years of experience in the building trades, so they understand your challenges and can offer practical advice. They're not just salespeople, they're your on-site resource, ready to answer questions and guide you through the selection process.

Advice you can trust

We invest in ongoing training for our team, ensuring they stay up-to-date on the latest products, materials, and techniques. This means you get accurate, reliable advice you can trust.

Welcome to all

Whether you're a seasoned contractor or a DIY enthusiast, we encourage you to browse our branches, touch the materials, and ask questions. Our friendly staff is always happy to help, regardless of your project size or budget.

Bring your builder

Need your trusted builder involved? No problem! Bring them along to brainstorm the best options for your project. We believe in collaboration and open communication, so everyone involved feels confident and informed.
