I know of two main stockists of metal.
Gavrilakis (Γαβριλακις) is, I think the one which Moggieman referred to. See map.
As you come off the huge roundabout junction, you pass an olive grove, Renault car dealer then Gavrilakis, adjacent. (I parked in front of the Peugeot dealer on a quiet day.)

The second is Aluminco. Head for Omalos going underneath the National Road. Less than 1km up that road you'll see a BP garage on your right with Aluminco opposite on the left. It is NOT open weekends.


Aluminco
35°29'36.27"N
23°59'2.38"E

Gavrilakis
35°30'24.47"N
24° 0'19.17"E

Jumbo
35°30'22.54"N
23°59'13.71"E

I visited Gavrilakis, yesterday, and my contact there asked me to publish his number: Dimitris 6983426095
His English is extremely limited but he is very helpful and happy to cut stuff to size and deliver if at all practicable.
Taking a photo with you of what you want and looking up the Greek words is recommended.

Clogs, ref your original point 2, Praktika D.I.Y - all supplies has a store in Heraklion close by to the airport there.

When you go to their website (google translate required) you could skip the mail order pages for household furniture (although useful) but see for yourself the sections related to materials. Good selection of bathroom items at the moment. They have their own free parking underground. It is free whether you buy or not. I like that as the car can cool down before leaving with a full shop.

They have a useful large section of DIY from construction to internal finishing. They may not have precisely what you seek in metal girders etc but they have a lot of stock. It is a place also to get ideas.

Close by to Praktika store there is also the Industrial Trading Estate that houses many factories in prefabrication. I recall buying double glazed windows several years back.

They also have their own customer card that earns a discount at the end of each year if a minimum spend is made over the preceding year.

In fact Heraklion has many useful locations in Crete's capital city such as tiles suppliers. End of run (left overs) can be bought for considerable discounts. Lemonakis is a name that comes to mind.

Hope that helps.
  

Treat fairly, those who treat you fairly. To shout is a sign of weakness. Confucious may have said: "Don't be easily hurt or offended. Take a deep breath, count to 10. Log off and make a cup of tea.

As you come out of Chania heading for Kato stalos on the coast road, you come to a large set of traffic lights just before the left hand turning for Omalos. Just before the lights on the left is a steel stockist.  Might not have the beams you want but there is always lots of steel and steel sheets outside.   They do speak "some" english and if they havnt got it will certainly know where to get it.

Hi all, 2 things to ask....
1, where is the main heavy steel suppliers in Crete, I'd use the local suppliers but I need to build a large barn requiring RSJ and long sheet materials....."loads'a money"
2, seemingly there are NO large DIY stores here.....I want to update all the plumbing fittings, loo's and shower taps...just can't seem to find smart stuff at good prices......
DO you get ur's from the UK......?
Coming from rural France we shipped everything from the UK !!!!
I wan't to support local stores but not at a huge cost disadvantage...
What do you do please  ?......
many thanks  Clogs...... Sad
