Builder Specialties (BSI) is proud of our 50+ years experience servicing the builder and homeowner communities in Atlanta. 

In the mid 1960's a fireplace and appliance distribution company named Sun Valley was started in Atlanta with 5 employees.  In 1990 Sun Valley evolved into Residential Construction Specialties (RCS), a name synonymous with home building and remodeling in the Atlanta market and beyond. In 2004, four RCS salesmen and two key operational VP's joined together with the original president of RCS to establish Builder Specialties. Builder Specialties acquired the selected assets of RCS just four short years later, including three Atlanta-area showrooms and more than 70 of their most experienced employees. In 2010 Colonial Lighting joined Builder Specialties and paved the way for endless lighting possibilities having provided quality lighting products to builders, designers, remodelers, and other customers in the Atlanta area since 1967. In 2014 BSI acquired GM appliances along with three Showrooms in Panama City, Destin, and Foley; further expanding our influence.  In the beginning of 2015, Sewell Appliance Joined the Builder Specialties family bringing with them a standard of excellence and experience that began in 1962.

Today, Builder Specialties provides Better Home SOLUTIONS in appliances, fireplaces, mantels, garage doors, carriage style garage doors, lighting, and outdoor products to trade professionals and homeowners. BSI is recognized for the finest showrooms featuring the most recognized brands in the industry. The showrooms are located in Buckhead, Sandy Springs (Sewell Appliances), Destin, Panama, and our Colonial Lighting showroom in Sugar Hill.History of BSI
