“Great people ready to help you with all of your hard lumber and sheet goods. Will cut sheet goods to manageable sizes for you to carry. Jerry Best is a terrific salesman and gets back to you right away on pricing and special milling. He is the reason I drive 10 extra miles to get what I need. They also carry hardwood mouldings and mdf baseboard and casing.”
