Lumber is the heart of the building business and we do lumber right. Timber is a commodity that can fluctuate wildly depending on variables such as oil prices, political climate, international relations, trade laws, tariffs, manufacturing output and even the weather. Our buyers are constantly monitoring prices in order to give you the best market pricing. You have the advantage of dedicated career professionals with over a hundred years of combined purchasing experiencing sourcing products for you.
We do everything in our power to offer competitive pricing and availability. Buying in volume and bringing product in by rail allows us to avoid many of the smaller pricing ripples. Our smart purchasing tactics allow us to offer the most competitive prices in the region.
We have all of the most common building materials in stock. In fact, we maintain an inventory of over six thousand items commonly used in construction. From the sill plate to ridge vents, we stock everything your standard project might need. Everything we sell is dispatched from our single location.
We also understand that your project may require its own unique materials. For this reason, we’ve become specialists in ordering and handling special orders. Each year we routinely order and deliver tens of thousands of special order items. This ability truly makes us a one-stop building material provider.
