Exterior Solutions will expand at new Gulfport site

The former Hirschbach Motor Lines property at 10377 Three Rivers Road in Gulfport that's been vacant for years has a new owner.

Exterior Solutions, currently at 14410 Creosote Road in Gulfport, will move to the site after a new building is constructed, said owner Ben Perry.

"I definitely have big plans," he said.

He started the business in 2009, when the company he was working for closed during the recession. The new site gives him room for expansion.

"I can carry a broader product line," he said.

Exterior Solutions sells building materials, stone, siding, roofing, stucco supplies, windows and doors.

Perry said he sells to building contractors and retail customers. The new site is just east of The Crossroads shopping center and close to Interstate 10.

"It is nice to see some of these properties that have been vacant for such a long time get put back to use and get new life," said Kenneth Jones II, listing agent on the Hirschbach site, along with Sam Jones. Both are agents with Coldwell Banker Commerical Alfonso Realty in Gulfport.

Carl LaRosa, also with Coldwell Banker Commercial, sold the property for $385,000.
