Smaller stores have the flexibility to provide value-added services or products. One way to do this is by offering a discounted, off-grade lumber product that satisfies the needs of your DIY, industrial, shed/garage builders, and certain remodelers.
Local retailers who stock discount building materials can go a long way toward maintaining the loyalty of their valued customers. Providing an affordable alternative to build cheap outbuildings, chicken coops, and barn interiors is the key to keeping clients happy and still turning a profit.
Online sales of building supplies are here to stay. It’s a growing trend in all industries and many wholesale companies are embracing it, while still maintaining those longstanding customer relationships. In a competitive world, the ones who don’t evolve get left behind. So take a peek at that screen – you never know what deals you might find!
Low-grade lumber is an industrial graded wood which can be softwood lumber or hardwood lumber. It is available in many sizes, from 1×4 and 1×6 through common dimensional lumber sizes like 2×4, 2×6, and 2×12, and larger. Low-grade lumber typically has more wane and knots than higher wood material that is used for residential construction.
