Hello all,

There's a sheetrock making plant right on the Houston ship channel:
United States Gypsum Co. Can you buy direct from them?

I called them and you have to buy from a distributor or be a licensed contractor to buy direct.

She gave me the following distributors in Houston area:

Drywall supply 281-821-6690

Builders Gypsum 713-263-6036

But she said as far as getting a quantity discount on a purchase, that I could contact Tamie Randall their inside sales rep for the state of TX at: 972-371-5990 and ask her about discounts.

So if anyone follows up with her and gets more info please post it here. I am just in the planning phase so not looking at any drywall right now.

Hello Jenee,

I am new to the forum and we are in the intial planning stages of our project, but I was curious as to whether you ended up getting your drywall through the manufacturer worked out? I am always on the lookout for savings. Curious.

Thanks,

Michael

Hi,

My understanding is that they sell to distributors only. But being in Brenham you are close enough that if you were able to work out a deal with a Houston distributor and provide your own pickup and delivery you may save some money. If you have your house plans maybe Sutherlands can do a lumber/materials takeoff for you and offer you a discounted builders' price that will include sheetrock, hardware, flooring, all that you need. I haven't been to Brenham in a while, so I'm not certain if another supplier has moved to town or not. I'm in Corpus Christi and we have seven suppliers to choose from. Many suppliers here will not give a takeoff unless you already have a builder. I was able to find a local builder. That is a godsend for me. 

Our project is on the way and we will be pouring our slab in about a week.

Best to you,

Mary
