Doug Ashy Building Materials, founded by Doug and Claire Ashy in 1960, began service to the Lafayette community with four employees and one delivery truck. The modest business of 1960 has grown to include two stores in Lafayette, a distribution center, and stores in Rayne, New Iberia, Ville Platte, and Breaux Bridge – covering the Acadiana area. As well as stores in Covington and Lake Charles.

Doug Ashy, Sr., and his sons Doug Jr., Steve, and Ken, all respectfully retired, have continued to provide the building community with a full line of high quality products at a “one stop” shopping center. Recently, a third generation comprised of D.J., Steven, Michael and Cullan Ashy are running the business to continue the dreams of Doug and Claire.

Doug Ashy Building Materials is proud to have a team of highly qualified professionals including full-time estimators, interior decorators, kitchen design experts, and a window and millwork specialist. Utilizing the latest technology, they can match colors, design decks, and layout kitchens. We also offer a decorating center with experts to assist you with all home needs and selecting flooring for every room of your home. Their delivery system – which uses boom trucks, lift trucks, forklift towing trucks, and millwork trailers – is further evidence of their commitment to their customers and guarantees that materials reach the jobsite timely and in good condition. All of these are an effort to offer the best service to the customer.

The team at Doug Ashy Building Materials believes that “service” is not just a word; it is what customers demand and deserve. Their job is not complete until the customer is completely satisfied.

Doug Ashy Building Materials continues to be heavily involved with trade associations to keep abreast of new items and changes in the industry. In addition to the Acadian Home Builders Association (AHBA), they also belong to the Lumbermen’s Merchandising Corporation (LMC), which is the largest building materials buying group in the country. This allows them to buy quality materials in bulk and pass on the savings to the consumer.

In 1984, Robert Mitchell had a mission: to provide South Louisiana with the best shower doors at the most affordable price with lightning-quick service. As a team, Mr. Bob and his son-in-law Chris Van Pelt transformed M&M Glass Company into the region’s premiere provider for shower doors, custom mirrors, and specialty glass work.

With the same principles of affordability and speed, we’ve expanded our product line, developed our technical skills, and built an outstanding team.  Every day, we dispatch all over South Louisiana to bring you the highest quality glass and mirror.  While our specialties are heavy glass frameless showers and custom framed mirrors, we offer many other products and services that we hope you’ll explore.
