Building Supplies in Charleston

Our Charleston facility is our first physical storefront outside of North Carolina, and we have loved becoming a part of the Charleston builders community. Just as with our North Carolina outfitters, we are committed to providing high-quality products at a great value to every customer. On top of that, our focus on customer service means we will always put you and your project first. Whether this is the first time we’ve worked together, or we have worked with you for decades, we are excited to help Charleston grow to new heights.

Our local team knows all the ins and outs of the city, and we are excited to provide building supplies to match every project and development. With a rapidly expanding number of residents calling Charleston home, we will always bring the best quality products to every worksite: on time and at an incredible value. Supporting our family at Professional Builders Supply is always close to our hearts, and that starts with continued dedication and focus on providing the best for our Charleston customers–new and old alike.

From subcontracting projects to purely product-based sales, your business is genuinely respected and appreciated. Give us the opportunity to show you the difference … it’s about the service!!!®
