Who is Builders FirstSource?

Builders FirstSource of Grand Junction strives to be the preferred supplier of building materials and building services to professional builders and homeowners in the western slope. As part of a nationwide company with over 400 locations across the United States, our Grand Junction location leverages this size with local and experienced talent to partner with builders and homeowners for their residential and commercial building projects, from new construction to renovations. It is because of our national footprint that we are able to offer high-quality building products from excellent manufacturers and it is because of our local team that we are able to provide quality customer service and exceptional value — ensuring we can be your trusted partner for all of your building needs.

Does Builders FirstSource sell only to builders and commercial contractors?

As a full-service building materials company, we’re excited to work with both professional builders and also individually with homeowners, providing materials and building services for residential and commercial projects including new construction and renovations.

How long has Builders FirstSource operated in Mesa County?

Builders FirstSource expanded into the Grand Junction market in 2003. In 2007 we completed the construction of our new facility at 2773 Riverside Parkway.

What do you believe differentiates Builders FirstSource from other building material suppliers?

First and foremost it’s our people. We have an experienced, knowledgeable and friendly team that truly enjoys helping builders and homeowners be successful in their projects. Everything we do, we do with a customer-driven focus, continually building 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 or renovate a home or commercial building. Lumber, windows, doors, kitchen and bath cabinets, door hardware; if it goes in a house or commercial property, we have it. We also carry tools, decking, fencing and a multitude of other quality products for whatever it is you’re building. We even carry a full line of stucco and interior finish products. For products that we don’t have in stock, we can special order anything you need to ensure your building project is uniquely you.

What do you see as up-and-coming trends in the building industry?

In our market, we’ve seen many home exteriors shift from lap siding to stucco while new homes are being built to allow greater amounts of natural light with both larger and more windows. Inside the home, homeowners are focused on function leading to open-concept layouts, islands with counter seating for casual dining, and contemporary finishes utilizing bright, clean color palettes with an occasional accent of wood, stone, tile or some other element to add warmth and character to the area.

What should we know about Builders FirstSource?

Although we benefit from being a national company, our Grand Junction location is made up of local people with deep roots in this community. Our employees are little league coaches, wrestling coaches and softball coaches in addition to volunteering for service organizations such as the Home Builders Association, Habitat for Humanity, and Western Colorado Contractors Association. In addition to our time, we’re also grateful for the opportunity to be generous in our community through the donation of materials to many of our local charitable organizations. We’re part of the community, many of us grew up and went to school here. We love working, living, and participating in Western Colorado.​
