Carvers BuildingLtd. have been an integral part of the business scene in Wolverhampton for many years. As the biggest supplier of building materials, to both the trade and the public, they are the beacon to which majority of building firms look towards.

We at Dinos Buildings Ltd, have purchased our building materials from carvers for over 14 years, and we have built up a good and productive business relationship with them. We liaise with salesmen and customers advisors in every part of Carvers to give us a good service and the best prices possible. We have always looked to Carvers as our “Rock” and we are so sorry to hear about the disastrous fire that has happened today.
