Fencing, Welding & Grilling Suppliers In Jamaica
QUESTION: Hello Wellesley,
I am UK based and recently purchased a new home in Jamaica, however increasingly frustrated at the lack of information available on the internet in relation to products and services.
I have been trying to get information on Grilling and Fencing suppliers in an attempt to get quotes, but have found that email addresses provided dont work, or there is no way of communicating apart from the telephone.
Any information you could give me on grilling and fencing around the Montego bay/Falmouth/Ochi areas would be most helpful.i.e email addresses or companies who provide both.
Addtionally your response to the costs involved in building a house, i.e cost of Material was very useful.
Have the prices changed for blocks and cement?
Thinking of adding to the new house.ANSWER:

Well, congrats on your new home in Jamaica Errol!
Thanks for asking, and thanks for the positive feedback on the building a house in Jamaica article. I'm glad it helped :-)
First things first...the fencing and welding:
There is indeed a large number of suppliers of such services here, but you know what Errol, most of them are smaller shops are are not listed in the local directory.
I found a few that you might want to start
with though. And you did say the Montego Bay, Falmouth and Ocho Rios region right?
Armour Metal Fencing Ltd,
Lot 5 Unit 7 Fairfield Estate Bogue Montego Bay, St James Jamaica
Back St Ocho Rios, St Ann Jamaica
Fencing Installation & Construction Services
Tank-Weld Metals Ltd
Catherine Hall Montego Bay, St James Jamaica
Grilling & Welding Suppliers
Ward's Power Tools & Supplies Ltd
Lot 1 Ironshore Ind Est Rose Hall, St James Jamaica
Cell: 876-439-8436 (Jason)
Montego Bay, St. James
Those are the ones I could find Errol.
Of course, I'm inviting my fans to add other suppliers via the comment button below.
And, I would still suggest that you try phone contact first Errol, most of them might not respond to email timely.
Regarding the prices of building materials, yes some of the material prices have changed slightly.
Back then I mentioned that the price of a bag of cement was approximately JMD 760. It's now JMD 792, per the same vendor.
So just add about 4% more to the initial cost and that should give you a good idea.
I hope all this was helpful my friend.
