Builders’ General Location Spotlight: Little Silver

Builders’ General wouldn’t be who we are today without the hard work, dedication and passion coming from our building supply store in Little Silver. One of seven Builders’ General locations across New Jersey, Little Silver is a full-service lumber yard and retail store selling premium home building supplies and services.

Because of our employees, we are considered a builders supply dealer of high-quality brands contractors and homeowners know and trust. We interviewed Dan Whitmeyer, our Little Silver Operations Manager, to extract the uniqueness of this location and highlight some of our top-quality building products and customer testimonials in order to give you an inside look to see how we make the magic happen for our loyal customers.

What makes Builders’ General`s Little Silver location unique

Dan Whitmeyer has been a part of the Builders’ General family for almost three decades. Starting as yard personnel, enjoying the sunshine and keeping the property clean and well-kept, he moved quickly up to building orders and moving forklifts.

Dan has grown within our departments across the company, inspiring his colleagues in the building shop before heading off to charm customers in the sales department as an assistant manager. With a knack for windows, he has hands-on experience with window units and knows window quoting like the back of his hand.

Dan moved to Little Silver, promoted as an operations manager, but he isn’t just stuck in a stuffy office — he gets to wear all different kinds of hats. Dan loves to look out his door and see what his tried-and-true employees are working on and what new things are happening. Little Silver is a fast-moving operation with eager clientele and staff always happy to pass on their knowledge in true “wingman” fashion.

Dan has loved building his career at Builders’ General. When asked why he loves it, he said, “It’s a great company to work for. You are one of the family, not just a number. The owners’ doors are always open, and there’s something different every day. Customers aren’t just customers; they’re friends. They’ll stop in the morning just to say hello and we love that. Obstacles happen, but the challenges are a part of what makes this job enjoyable.”

With 90 years in business, BGS has seen so much throughout the years — through the ups and downs, good times and bad times, the experiences have helped us know how to prepare for the worst and aim for the best.

“The reason customers keep coming back is that BGS’s owners are incredibly involved in the business. They know their customers, all their pain points, and work closely with them to offer them solutions that work. BGS isn’t just going to pass the buck along; they are there to make sure things get done,” Dan said.

Hear It Right From Our Customers

Mike I. left us a 5-star review and said:

“The best service of any building/home supply store anywhere! The service here is always expert, thorough and courteous. We needed a few sheets of plywood siding that was a custom length and had to be ordered. I called the store, and the sales rep was super patient and asked me several questions to make sure he understood exactly what type I needed.

Even though this was a small order, he didn’t rush me. Builders’ General has a reputation for high-quality products and great service and I totally agree! Everyone at Builders’ General knows how to treat a customer.”

Asaf T. left us this 5-star review:

“Great selection of building supplies and materials. Amazing customer service. Quick turnaround for price quotes. We use Builders’ General Supply for all our new construction and renovation projects. The sales team knows their products and always works to meet our schedule.”

Dennis R., a loyal customer, also graciously left us a 5-star review and said:

“I am the owner of Rocon Construction Group, and we are general contractors that work throughout the state predominantly in Monmouth and Ocean counties. We work with Builders’ General for our projects and can’t say enough about their service and dedication to our company and our staff. Our salesman from Builders’ General is Bryan, and he goes out of his way to make sure things are right for us and is quick to solve problems. I have a direct relationship with one of the owners, Mike, and he has personally helped me on many occasions. I highly recommend them for all building needs from rough framing, windows, doors, trim and to siding and finishes.”
