MANCHESTER, Conn. — US LBM announced that it has opened a new roofing and siding location in Manchester, Conn. The location is US LBM's ninth new roofing and siding focused greenfield since 2018. US LBM opened a similar roofing and siding focused location in nearby Newington, Conn. earlier this year.

"US LBM has built a strong network of local building materials distributors across New England, and we have a great team in Manchester that understand the local market and have an extensive knowledge of our products," said US LBM Chief Development Officer and Universal Supply President Jeff Umosella.

The new location will operate as part of US LBM's Universal Supply division, as does the recently opened Newington location.

With this latest opening, US LBM now operates 20 locations across New England, with its divisions in the region including East Haven Builders Supply, Wallboard Supply, Poulin Lumber, Deering Lumber and Universal Supply.

Situated at the junction of three interstate highways, I-291, I-84 and I-384 just north of Hartford, Universal Supply Manchester is conveniently located and fully stocked with the highest quality roofing and siding products for professional builders, contractors and remodelers in Connecticut. The team is ready to assist customers with budgeting, product selection and scheduling on-site delivery for roofing, siding and specialty products. The Manchester location's address is 166 Colonial Road and can be reached by phone at 860-288-5296. The location is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The expansion is among the latest completed by US LBM, including the opening of a new Hines Supply roofing and siding location in West Chicago and a new Universal Supply roofing and siding location in Newark, N.J.
