Business information

Welcome to Merkko Enterprises Ltd. - Oxford's leading independant heavyside Builders Merchants.

If you are a building contractor, groundworker, developer or self builder looking to buy building materials at competitive prices from a company that knows about what it sells and does what it says it will do, Merkko will prove to be your best choice.

Merkko Builders Merchants started trading in Kingston Bagpuize in 2007 and quickly became popular as the preferred choice for builders who had become fed up with paying too much for their building materials and being let down on delivery promises by suppliers who knew little about the materials they sold.

We started as a specialist groundwork and civil engineering materials supplier, but soon realised that there was a market for an all round builders merchant in and around Oxford that upheld the traditional values of the industry by providing a service to the tradesman that has largely vanished amongst the large merchants who have grown to dominate the industry with a retail led, take it or leave it approach to their customers.

Whilst we are still the most comprehensive stockist of groundworks and civil engineering materials in the Oxford area, we now keep a huge range of timber and building materials in stock in our large (1.5 acre) yard and warehouses situated in a convenient location that means we can deliver quickly over a wide area and provide a quick turn-round for those customers who wish to collect their materials without getting stuck in the traffic.

What materials do we keep? The answer is everything that you might require for use below ground (drainage, septic tanks, sewerage treatment plants,manhole covers/gully gratings, water supply, ducting, DPM's, reinforcement steel etc.), on the ground ( kerbing, paving, polymer concrete and plastic line drainage systems, woven & non-woven geotextiles, bitumen emulsions, weed fabric, driveway shingle, grassblock plastic paving, block paving, natural stone paving etc.) or in the shell of a building ( facing bricks, blocks, timber, sheet materials, insulation, steel and concrete lintels, DPC's, wall ties, plaster, plasterboard etc.), rainwater systems in steel (Lindab) and cast iron (Hargreaves) we also stock roof batten, breather membranes and can supply Velux windows and roof tiles. And everything that sticks all of these things together!

Specialist materials that most merchants don't keep, but we do, include cast iron drain systems, bagged non-hydraulic limes (NHL 3.5 and 5.0), readymixed lime putty/coarse stuff/fine stuff, Superfoil SF19 & SF40 multi-foil insulation, concrete padstones and bollards, creasing tiles

What materials don't we keep? This is probably the best way to describe what we do - by telling you what we don't! We do not supply electrical items, internal plumbing, sanitaryware, kitchen units, ceramic tiles, plastic waste and gutter systems.

We offer a next day delivery service on ex-stock materials on our crane offload vehicles where required.
