I would like to tell you how wonderful Steve Glynn was to me. He made the ordering process so easy for me. He spent a great deal of time verifying measurements, putting up with my inept questions and he put me in contact with countertop and sink companies. Every time I mentioned I was working with him; the immediate response was, “I love working with Steve!” I will certainly keep him permanently in my contact list and recommend him to anyone who asks me for a recommendation for cabinets. I’m looking forward to working with Steve and Builders’ General again in the not-too-distant future.Phyllis G.
Steve and Kyle, it’s long overdue, but I wanted to send you both a heartfelt thank you. We have been enjoying our new kitchen for several months now, using it for nearly every meal as we work from home during the pandemic. Steve – thank you for agreeing to take on this project already in progress. You displayed great patience and genuinely cared about adding balance and function to the design. I appreciate your feedback… all of this while working remote, texting in real time, and staying in constant communication. Kyle – I can’t say enough about your perseverance in the pursuit of giving us the kitchen of our dreams. You are a dynamic duo, and I would recommend you to any homeowner.Alison
I purchase almost all of my building material from Builders’ General Supply. As a new home builder and general contractor their service is a pivotal part of my business. Not only are the deliveries timely, the staff at the Edison location goes above and beyond to make sure my day-to-day needs are met. I can walk in there with clients and trust that the staff can educate them on building material options and even suggest a few ideas that I didn’t think of. While on the job site I have “speed dial” access to their dedicated outside sales rep who will stop by on short notice to discuss options and put in an order. For all you homeowners out there, there’s a reason why all the good contractors don’t shop at the big-box home improvement centers. Builders’ General Supply is a well oiled machine with experts in every area of building and construction. Corporate when they need to be with the local hometown hardware store feel that you want.Topilow Development
I am writing to you to acknowledge the wonderful Customer Service that Dan Speight provided… I cannot say enough how much Dan was instrumental in helping me to get my order and delivery completed. From the very beginning to getting the final correct pieces, he was always available and there for me. He is a pleasure to work with and he demonstrated what it means to be Customer focused and dedicated to making a customer happy. His contribution to Builders’ General and personal service represents you in the best way possible.Larry C.
TJ, I’ve been building and remodeling homes for 43 yrs. I’m always trying to improve on what and how we do things and this Framer Series is great. Thanks to you guys at BG for bringing it in.Joe Jackson / GreenBuilt
Builders’ General has a reputation for high-quality products and great service and I totally agree! The service I received from Jerry Klemm and Matt Carter was thorough, courteous and all around excellent. The item came in sooner than promised and the driver was prompt and super careful. Everyone at Builders’ General knows how to treat a customer.MIKE I.
Dan Whitmeyer represents BGS in just about the best I think any sales manager has ever done. Along with having a great attitude, he’s very organized and gets answers to any of my questions with incredible speed. He’s ALWAYS doing whatever he can to solve my material needs, (even on his days off or after hours). I hate to just mention Dan when you have so many great people and it’s not fair to them. Dan truly takes it on his own to do the right thing, (serve your customers with the best, best knowledge, best product, best delivery), but that is exactly what I’ve known to expect over the last 34 years that I have done business with BGS. BGS is the BEST and all of this trickles down from the top, (You and Tim and your entire family wouldn’t have it any other way).JOSEPH J. / Faust Contracting Company
Builders’ General is at the top of their games in providing education for design professionals and contractors. In addition to their product seminars we also deal with them regularly for client projects. They are always well informed and a pleasure to deal with.Grasso Design Group
Very professional and very knowledgeable in Andersen products. Builders’ General took the time to walk me thru the available options and guided me to the best products for the best price. A pleasure to work with and I highly recommend Builders’ General.Longview Construction, LLC
As a new Builder, coming from a completely different field, I have experienced nothing but complete respect, high level of customer service and patience! Everyone at Builders’ General, from its owner to the delivery people have been nothing short of AMAZING. It was my first big project and feeling a bit intimidated as I walked into the Little Silver location. Immediately I felt like I become part of this wonderful family! I know ALL of our future business will forever be with Builder’s General!Carol G.
I love buying from Builders’ General. Whether it’s new windows and doors when remodeling our 100 year old house to picking up light bulbs, the employees could not be more helpful. I would highly recommend Builders’ General for all your home improvement needs. Hands down they beat the big box store experience!Patricia M.
I met the owner of Builders’ General personally when I opened my account. They worked hard to get my business and they continue to work hard today. There’s been times when I’ve needed an item to save the day and Erik, my salesman brought it to the job site. You can’t get service like that from too many other places these days. In fact, except for the times when we need something they don’t carry, like siding for instance, we buy exclusively from Builders’ General. They gave us the best price and service, and in return we give them all our business. It’s a win win for both sides.Tim K.
Since our company; 2 River Group has formed our own account with BGS, we have had nothing but positive experiences. Over past years we had used BGS via another individuals account and the experience was not as good, but we now know that was not the fault of BGS, but more so of the unnamed individual. Good news is that moving forward we are hopeful to expand on this relationship and obtain even better pricing models based on volume. Overall, very pleased with the relationship.2 River Group
VERY prompt and professional service. Good selection of products and knowledgeable staff who directed us to the right products. I recommend them WELL OVER the big box retailers. Competitive prices and better quality products.Ray S.

After going through many suppliers and dealing with miserable sales associates, I came to Builders’ General in Toms River. Working with Jeff has not only helped me get the best price for my customers, but has also helped me win more bids and maintain a shorter time frame for my jobs. I will not be going elsewhere anytime soon.K. Romano Construction, LLC
I was rebuilding a roof top deck and used Builders’ General for all materials, including composite decking, fasteners, lumber and rails. They were very knowledgeable on all products and options and had the best price in my area for all supplies. Very easy to work with and very prompt on answering any questions. Most of the correspondence during the planning and quote stage was via email.Chris L.
Builders’ General is a great resource for builders. We place multiple orders in each week with them & they are always on hand to help us with anything that comes us.Natalie L.

I send all my customers to Builders’ General to purchase their Kitchen Cabinets, Windows & Doors… The staff is knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. I will continue working with them for many years to come.JMT Builders
Builders’ General Supply is the epitome of a family business that cares about their customers. I was doing a remodel in my kitchen and was at HD and had a horrible experience. I felt annoying for asking questions and just felt like another number. When I was referred to a friend to check out Builders’ General I took their word and it was the best thing I could have done. The kitchen specialist was so friendly walked me through each cabinet selection and they offer free design and delivery which blew my mind. Thank you guys I will always be a BGS fan!John V.
I’ve been buying all of my wood and trim work from Builders’ General Supply for years. They always have the best price and the shipping to my door is free regardless of quantity. Quality is always top notch. Everyone is professional and friendly – they even remember your name and what you do. It’s that kind of personalized touch that sets them above the rest in my book.J M.
I have enjoyed working with Dave. I’ve purchased, windows, doors, lumber, AZEK, moulding and more from Builders’ General over the span of 6 months. Dave came out to the house to measure the windows and doors and provided suggestions based on his experience (since I had none!). Taking on a major renovation, having professionals with a point of view you can trust is really important. Dave also worked closely with my contractor on the lumber orders which made my life easier. I would definitely recommend BG and would use them again.Christine F.
We have worked with Builders’ General for over 10 years and we have to say their staff is very professional. The sales team is effective and they carry great quality materials. Very competitive with pricing and we enjoy working with them.Baine Contracting, Inc.

I am in the Handyman business and use Builders’ General as one of my two main suppliers. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable and I can rely on them for a quick response to our inquiries as well facilitating the quick procurement and delivery of job materials. Always timely even when asked on short order. That nimbleness and catering is what sets them apart from their competitors.B W.
I have been dealing with Builders’ General since 2003. I have never met the best Customer Service professionals. They’re always on top of all orders and deliveries. Best thing is they have Free Delivery as well. Outside sales representatives are the best. Definitely the Best Lumber Yard in our area.Shore GC Group, INC
We have done business with Builders’ General for 20 years. All staff are great and very helpful. Prices are fair and delivery is always on time.L J.
We have worked with Mike in Sales on both small and large construction jobs. He always responds quickly and has provided very competitive pricing on everything from keyed locksets to framing materials and sheetrock. We also used BG to supply and install commercial countertops in an office setting. Jennifer was also extremely knowledgeable and responsive, and provided excellent suggestions and pricing. The BG stain grade, solid core, birch doors were exceptional in quality and price. We had been pricing a pre finished door at four times the cost, until Mike showed us the quality of their stain grade birch door, for a fraction of the price. We will continue to use them whenever we can and recommend them often.D C.

Builders’ General Supply Company is the Gold Standard of any supply yard in the state. Salesman who provide timely and competitive quotes, inside sales who are helpful, and a family owned business who treats their customers with professionalism at all times.

Can not say enough about how easy BGS is to deal with for both my contracting firm and for personal needs as well.Woodward Construction Company Incorporated
