4 Benefits of Shopping at a Lumber Supply Store

Posted March 08, 2021

When shopping for top-grade lumber, the big box hardware stores aren’t your only option. You can also shop at your local lumber supply store. While there’s nothing against the big box stores, shopping at a lumber yard gives you the opportunity to browse through a wide range of lumber options, seek affordable prices and receive personalized customer service. Doesn’t this sound like the perfect start to your project?

Below are four benefits of shopping at a local lumber yard for your next home improvement project.

1. Get Expert Attention

Lumber yards specialize in wood and wood-related products. The employees know everything there is to know about wood and they can help you select the best building supplies for your project. They’ll also help carry the boards out to your car or deliver them to your home or job site. This is a lot better than wandering through the aisles of a home improvement store to find an employee, isn’t it?

2. Enjoy a Huge Selection of Wood Products

Compared to your local home improvement store, lumber yards carry a much wider selection of wood products. In fact, many of the building supplies they carry can’t be found in traditional stores! From doug fir to pine, you’ll have a vast range of durable, aesthetically pleasing wood products to choose from. They’re also available in various sizes to accommodate your project.

3. Higher Quality Lumber

Not only do you get a bigger selection of wood products from a lumber yard but also higher quality products. Lumber yards get their building supplies from reputable sources they know and trust for excellent results. Rather than digging through stacks of lumber to find decent boards, you can expect them all to be good. Imagine how much time you’ll save!

4. Reasonable Prices

You might think that home improvement stores are cheaper, but this isn’t necessarily true. Lumber yards purchase wood - it’s what they do. Therefore, they are well-versed in wood and how to purchase this material at competitive prices. Also, lumber supply stores purchase wood in bulk, leading to reduced rates and lower prices for customers.
