BuildDirect Review.

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. However, it was completely written by me and contains my opinions. 

Now, I mentioned a couple of months ago that living in an older, mid-century house is not easy or fun. Really, it's not. If it's not one thing tearing up, then it's another. There's always something going wrong or falling apart, or something new that needs to be repaired. It feels like a never ending cycle sometimes.

Last year, it was the shower in the small bathroom that needed replacing. A shower that our contractor described as having "come over on the Mayflower". Yep, it was that old. And leaky. And wobbly. You might say, that every time I stepped foot in it was an adventure.

The floors in both bathrooms also needed replacing due to severe rotting, the central air unit finally breathed its last, and we needed new insulation throughout the house, too. By the way, I can tell a big difference since the insulation was added. Until the polar vortex last week, we hadn't even needed a fire and we've barely turned the heat on either.

Then, of course, we needed flooring put down in the bathrooms to replace the old. It was scheduled to be put down sometime after Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, the tile installer is really behind and still hasn't gotten to us. Which is a complete bummer because I picked out the prettiest walnut colored wood tile that I'm in love with. Actually, Bryony helped me pick it out. She has good taste.

All I can say right now, is that I wish I had known about BuildDirect before picking it out. They have an amazing wood tile selection available to choose from. Not to mention, laminate flooring, hardwood, carpet, and a whole lot more. Too much, in fact, to name it all. I could spend hours on their site browsing and coming up with ideas for the house. And I have today.

Just read the BuildDirect reviews. Their customers are overwhelmingly happy with the service they've received. Some of the highlights of those reviews mention super fast shipping, great prices, and excellent customer service. You can also check out their Facebook page here.


  1. I personally had a terrible experience with BuildDirect flooring. Got a defective product, which structurally failed, and was documented in a certified wood flooring inspectors report as "manufacturing responsibility." BuildDirect failed to honor their warranty. BuildDirect cannot be sued in small claims court since their terms of service waives your right to do so. Avoid Build Direct!!!

    1. Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that you've had such a bad experience with them :( I've certainly had similar problems with companies like that before so I know how frustrating it can be. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment about it and wishing you the best of luck in the future.

    2. I saw the conversation this man had with a BuildDirect Rep. on another website and what he fails to mention is that he purchased wood flooring that was not suitable for the humidity in his region. When I installed cork flooring in my kitchen I new It was a bad idea. Now I have to replace the water damaged cork but I am owning up to the mistake.The BuildDirect Rep. offered to remove the damaged flooring and give him a discount on the new flooring. I plan on buying tile from them this week because they are way cheaper than their competitors.

  2. Thank you for being transparent and open enough to allow my comment.
