Located at 520 Truck St. in Placerville, Diamond Central Building Supply staff has helped local homeowners and contractors create beautiful home projects since 2010. The company carries a wide variety of building materials, everything from bark and rock to sand and manufactured stone, as well as masonry, concrete and landscape tools. Some the most popular items are interlocking pavers, natural flagstone and stamped concrete. If there’s something they don’t have that you want, they’ll order it for. It’s all part of their commitment to offering customers the materials they need close to home.
“My husband has been in masonry all his life, and it used to be really frustrating for him to have to go to multiple different stores in Sacramento to get the materials he needed for a single job,” said Heidi Drury, who co-owns Diamond Central Building Supplies with husband Ken. “The customer service at those stores wasn’t all that great, either, and so we thought, ‘Other contractors must be feeling the same frustration. Why not create a building supply store that has it all and help support our local economy, too?’”
Diamond Central Building Supply is located on two acres in Placerville and has a large showroom where homeowners and contractors can view many of the products that they offer. All materials are stored on site, and customers can pick up their supplies themselves or the company can deliver them. One of the biggest advantages of working with Diamond Central Building Supply, however, is simply the staff’s knowledge of the industry.
“Sixty to 70 percent of people these days come in with a picture of something they like that they found on the Internet,” Heidi said. “Our employees can identify the correct products from those picture and make sure that we get them what they need. We can also explain the product and how they are best laid or used, as well as give customers ideas for how to do things more cheaply.”
Another big advantage to working with Diamond Central Building Supply is its contractor referral list. The company has a great relationship with numerous local concrete, landscape, masonry and general construction contractors and can put customers in touch with anyone they need for all different kinds of projects.
“There’s nothing better than getting to meet new people and help them create the look they want,” said Heidi. “It’s also amazing to help our employees get established and to help provide a place for people to work locally.”
