About Us

A family owned builders' supply firm for over 60 years: Providing building materials for the best local builders.

Smith & DeShields is a family owned business that has proudly served the South Florida building industry since 1957. Together, founding partners Clyde E. DeShields and Aris Smith embarked upon a journey that culminated in a building supply company that offers its customers top-quality architectural products delivered by top-quality people. To this day, the company consists of both second and third-generation team members working together to continue the family tradition.

Over the years, we’ve evolved our product lines to offer designs that represent current trends and styles intermingled with those that have withstood the test of time. Contractors, architects and homeowners alike are invited to experience the wide variety of quality products showcased in each of our four Florida showrooms.
