We have been using DHC Supplies, Inc for all our building wind bracing hardware requirements for a number of years now and have found their pricing to be very competitive if not better then most local suppliers. They have always shipped our orders complete and quickly. All the staff that we have dealt with have been very helpful. 02/10/17
