About Builders Surplus

Builders Surplus origins begin in 1991 in West Warwick, Rhode Island. What started as a small store in an old mill transformed into a five-store corporation. And Builders Surplus now offers three locations in Rhode Island (includes West Warwick, Warwick and Central Falls), plus one store in Jewett City, CT and Lunenburg, MA.

Specializing in home remodeling, Builders Surplus prides itself in understanding a homeowner’s budget. We want our customers to get the maximum value. So, whether you’re building a new home, updating a kitchen, or replacing an old floor, do it yourself and save. When value’s a must, shop Builders Surplus!

Just ask Max T. Value about Builders Surplus. He knows the budget can be a main concern for today’s homeowners. As a result, Max is a value hound. He’s always searching for a great selection of first quality, close-outs, overstocks, and surplus building materials. Most of all, Max wants our customers to get the maximum value. So, when you’re ready to start your home improvement, shop Builders Surplus.
