Description of Project Whether you are a builder, carpenter, roofer, painter you will always need to buy the materials you need to make a product. Sometimes you are making a product to sell or providing a service and you will not want to be out of pocket.

If you order too little or the wrong size you will not be able to make the product. If you order too much you will be left with waste and will end up costing you more. Before you start to make, you should plan out the exact size and quantity of a material you need and which stock form you need to order to get the shapes you need.
