Professional Builder

Professional Builder was established more than 40 years ago, with a direct distribution route via the counters of around 3,000 builders’ merchants across the UK.

It’s the biggest title in its market, with over 110,000 copies printed monthly, offering construction product manufacturers the chance to get their products in front of engaged buyers.

The magazine includes information on product selection and installation, Health and Safety, legislation, and advice on running a successful business – as well as regular competitions, giveaways and product round-ups.

In addition to the printed version, the website offers industry news and product reviews and a newsletter reaches around 20,000 people every week.

You can also view an archive of PDF versions of the magazine here:
