Founded in 1946 we are a premier building materials distributor serving Montauk to Manhattan

Founded in 1946 as a small roofing and siding distributor, Florence & Amagansett Building Materials have evolved into a full-line building material supplier with five warehouse locations and showrooms. Our goal is to satisfy the needs of professional home improvement contractors, builders and architects by offering personal service and dependability backed by an efficient distribution system.
