We are a retail roofing and building materials supplier - that means we welcome everyone, not just contractors
We are open Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 5:00 pm
Our average employee has been with the company for well over 10 years
We have been in business since 1993.
We are 100% locally owned and operated.
We are simple (as this website reflects). Not some huge corporation. We strive to give you what you want, when you want it. We are also very approachable, no need to feel intimidated asking any questions.
Over the years, we have constantly changed our business; with the most recent change being our name "Silver State Building Materials, Inc." What started as a 'roofing materials company' has changed into what it is today. We offer many different products besides roofing.
Recently, we have started to sell used building materials, thus the reason for our name change from Silver State Roofing Materials to Silver State Building Materials. This better reflects the nature of our business.
Frequently Asked Questions and Roofing Facts
"Do you guys sell to homeowners or just contractors?"
We put our pants on just like you - one leg at at time. We are what we call "retail friendly" We take a lot of pride in helping folks who have the guts to tackle such a large and often intimidating job as roofing their own home.
"Do you guys install roofing?"
No we do not, but we have qualified roofing contractors who are our customers and we will gladly get you in touch with one of them.
"Do you have roofing materials actually in stock?"
I can tell you this: we have a two acre yard that is full of composition roofing material. Check out the picture. We try our best to keep a reasonable amount of the most popular roofing materials in stock. This means that chances are very good we will have the product you want in the quantity you need available for immediate delivery. Since metal roofing is custom ordered for your specific application, it is special ordered and normally takes 1 – 2 weeks. If in doubt, your best bet is to contact us either via phone (775) 782-ROOF, or email us .
"Do you do takeoffs on plans?"
Sure, we are more than happy to check your plans for you and give you a material list.
"How much notice is needed for a delivery?"
Quite often we can do it the same day as ordered. Other times it is 1-2 days. As long as we have what you want in stock, delivery normally isn’t a problem.
"Why hire a professional?" Installing a new roof, replacing an existing roof or simply making roof repairs are all projects for a professional. In addition to owning the proper equipment, professional roofing contractors are also experienced at working in a variety of roofing situations, such as steeply pitched roofs. Professionals can also make recommendations about which shingles will perform best and which colors will complement your home's appearance. Here at SSBM, we supply roofing materials to contractors throughout the area. When you’re ready, we will be happy to refer a qualified licensed contractor.
"Choice's" Roofing choices used to be easy. Wood shake or shingles, a very small selection of composition shingles, and corrugated metal roofing were typically the only products available. Today there is far too many choices available to the homeowner. Trust our recomendations. We sell what works in our area of the globe. We've been here doing this business for quite a long time.
