Our Story

It was 1979 when Noble Bardell and his brothers made a bold move and converted their trellis manufactur-ing operation into Three Brothers - a business dedicated to the construction trade and DIY enthusiasts, offering them a full range of products and services. The Bardell brothers build the business on strong family values including honesty, integrity and caring for their customers.


Over the years, more than 30 members of the family worked here. It was during this time that they re-invented the building supplies industry and quickly became the household name and place for building supplies and honest-to-goodness building advice. The 35 year heritage remains as we continue to service the building industry and provide a comprehensive range of supplies, competitive low prices and always the great reliable advice. 

Why Three Brothers

Everything you need for building and renovation

Three Brothers cover every possible product area in the construction business. We can sell you a tin of paint or a pack of screws, or quote for a complete house lot – from adhesives to prenail framing and truss.

Competitive prices
We buy in bulk from local manufacturers and also import directly. Then we pass the savings onto our customers.


Deal with the experts
Each outlet at Three Brothers is owned and run by specialists. Whether you’re looking for a pack of timber, pricing a deck, or getting to grips with jointing compounds, you’ll find knowledgeable advice is part of the deal.
