Builders FirstSource

Who is Builders FirstSource?
Builders FirstSource strives to be the preferred supplier of structural building materials and services to the residential and commercial construction industry across the nation by providing personalized attention at the local level, and a wide range of resources only offered by a large company. Builders FirstSource’s goal is to provide outstanding products and services to every customer, regardless of size. On July 31, 2015, Builders FirstSource acquired its largest competitor, ProBuild Holdings LLC, creating a more diversified company with an enhanced scale and improved geographic footprint. The combined company currently operates over 440 locations in 40 states, with a market presence in 74 of the top 100 Metropolitan Statistical Areas in the United States.

Does Builders FirstSource sell only to home builders and commercial contractors?
No. We are a full-service building materials company. No project is too large or too small for us. Our expert sales staff is available to help with any project.

How long has Builders FirstSource operated in Mesa County?
We expanded into the Grand Junction market in 2003. We built our current facility and opened it in the spring of 2007.

What do you believe differentiates Builders FirstSource from other building material suppliers?
First and foremost it’s our people. We have an experienced, friendly group of employees who enjoy what we do. Everything we do, we do with a customer-driven focus. We believe in strong relationships. Although we are a national company we strive to be the best locally. We listen to, anticipate and respond to our customers’ needs.

What products can I find at Builders FirstSource?
We stock almost everything you need to build a new home or commercial building, lumber, windows, doors, kitchen, and bath cabinets, door hardware; if it goes in a house we have it. We also carry tools, fencing, decking, and a multitude of other products for your home projects. We even carry a full line of stucco and interior finish products. If we don’t have it in stock we can special order anything you need.

What do you see as up-and-coming trends in the building industry?
The exteriors of homes are shifting from siding to stucco. In kitchens and bathrooms, we see a lot more modern design features. The most popular color for door and bath hardware is oil rubbed bronze. We’re seeing a trend in darker colors for interior finishes. There is an industrial influence with light fixtures and home furnishings. We are also seeing a lot of different interior wall finishes like Venetian plaster.

What should we know about Builders FirstSource?
Although we benefit from being a national company, we are made up of local people. Our employees volunteer for service on the Home Builders Association committees and board, Habitat for Humanity board, Western Colorado Contractors Association board. They are little league coaches, wrestling coaches, softball coaches. We donate time and materials to many of the local charities. We’re part of the community, many of us grew up here, went to school here. We love working, living, and participating in western Colorado.
