Web joist prices. All roughly the same or worth shopping around?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to get a price for web joists.

With all other items so far I've found large variations in costs between suppliers for the same products. In most cases it has been worthwhile spending time on multiple quotes.

Are web joists the same and worth the effort of tracking down better prices, or will I find that multiple quotes come in at pretty much the same price?

Not sure that the core price varies that much (Lancashire), but transport cost do.  And thats what makes the difference.

Our 3  POSI quotes were within a couple of hundred:   one company was happy to take responsibility for the measuements (which weren't that accurate).

Free delivery and design

Plus site visit for trusses 

No one local could get near them

And a talent (on my job) for making 400mm errors.

That's not too bad in my case. I'll have to measure each joist span once the hangers are in place.

Make sure you order them with trimable blocks on the ends, so you can tweak a good fit in site.

Definitely. The droop on the tape measure will be an error to compensate for.

How much extra trimmable stuff is on the ends?
