About Us

It all began when David and Julie Bianchi incorporated D.L. Bianchi’s Construction Co. in Buffalo, New York in 1971. They focused their operation on general masonry and brick construction, carrying on the family tradition that began with Angelo Bianchi around 1911. After operating as one of the largest non-unionized masonry construction companies in Buffalo, David and Julie decided to move the company to North Carolina in 1996 where it still operates today.

It wasn’t until 2001 that the Bianchi Family, now with help from their son Mark, decided to open up a masonry retail store named D.L. Bianchi’s Brickyard Supply in Southport, North Carolina. The family’s experience and expertise along with the long-standing staff gives them the ability to supply all of their customers’ products or material needs.

With the help and support of the staff, the business has proudly become one of the most respected and notable businesses in the area. A tremendous amount of pride is taken in offering the highest quality products and services. The Bianchi Family and staff strive to build continuing relationships with all of our clients.

Green Building Practices

At D.L. Bianchi’s Brickyard Supply, we support and believe in Building Green. Because most of our customers build in coastal regions near environmentally sensitive areas, we are extremely concerned about implementing proper building practices to preserve this delicate environment.
