Building Materials

Quality in, quality out; when it comes to constructing a quality home or commercial space, the finished structure is truly the sum of its parts. That is why it pays to invest in quality building materials, such as the following brands offered at Chimo Building Centre in Thunder Bay.


There’s an old adage that says any plumbing project requires at least three visits to the hardware store. While it may be true that older homes should come with a plumbing certification course, our knowledgeable associates are here to break the three-visit curse that’s plagued do-it-yourselfers (and even some contractors) for too many years. Our associates (and fellow members of the “Busted Knuckle Society”) are here Monday through Saturday to answer your questions and help you find the right parts, fixtures, tools, and hardware to you complete your plumbing project.
