C&R Building Supply – About Us


Started in 1976 by Mario Carosella Sr., brothers Mario and Michael have watched the business evolve from C&R Window Company, a home-remodeling business located at Broad & Shunk, to the mega building supplies and materials company at 16th and Washington Avenue. According to Michael, the new building was designed to enhance their customers’ experience.

The new facility features a showroom, drive-thru lumber yard, hardware and paint store among other enhancements, making it attractive for anyone looking for quality supplies and an exceptional dose of customer service.
