Understanding the Journey of Your Lumber: How We Manage Damaged Construction Material

Table of Contents

The journey of lumber, from a forest to your construction site, involves many steps. Along the way, the wood passes through multiple hands and inevitably, there may be instances of damaged construction material. However, the important question to ask is – what happens when the material arrives at your site in less-than-perfect condition? Well, that’s where our commitment to providing the best service to you comes into play.

Understanding The Journey of Lumber

The process begins with the tree being harvested in the forest. This freshly-cut lumber is then loaded onto a truck to begin its journey. This is the first of many transitions it will make before it finally reaches your construction site.

From the forest, the lumber is transported to the sawmill, where it is cut into usable sizes. The next stop is the distributor, who takes the lumber from the sawmill and distributes it to various lumber yards. The lumber is handled several times during this process, and each handover presents a potential for damage. As a buyer, it’s crucial to be aware that damaged construction material is not an unusual occurrence in this process. But don’t worry, that’s where we step in.

Managing Damaged Construction Material

While damage can occur in any industry, what differentiates us is our approach to addressing this issue. If you receive damaged material, a quick phone call to our team is all it takes. We prioritize resolving these situations promptly by providing replacement material and picking up the damaged goods as swiftly as possible.

We also understand that time is a precious resource in construction. Delays can be costly, and waiting for replacement materials can cause significant holdups. That’s why we strive for a quick turnaround in these situations. If we receive a call in the morning, we aim to have the replacement material on your site by the afternoon. If the call comes in the afternoon, we make sure you have the materials you need by the next morning. Our goal is to minimize your downtime and keep your construction project moving along smoothly.
