Corporate Brands Around The World

Hello and welcome to my blog on branding. My name is Lisa Mitchell and I'm a brand enthusiast. I know it may seem weird, but I collect artwork from major corporate brands. As I expanded my collection, I wanted to learn more about how business worked, so I started studying the world of business. I'm not actually part of the business world, as I am currently a stay-at-home mom. But that doesn't mean that there are not a lot of things you can learn from my blog that might help your career or simply understand why I am so passionate about branding.

Lumber Yards - Full Service, One-Stop Shops For Your Project

Are you ready to tackle that outdoor deck yourself? Are you a contractor in need of specialized lumber for a custom project? Lumber yards have grown to become much more than just a provider of various types of wood. As the complexities of home and commercial projects have grown, there is often the need to procure as much as possible for a particular job in one place to minimize wait times for various parts and components to arrive.

Source for Wood and "Similar" Products

Lumber yards, of course, provide just what you would expect, various types of wood cut into different forms, shapes, and lengths. These consist of treated and naturally resistant woods for outdoor use, such as cedar or treated pine, and vary in uses such as decks, fences, building frames, plywood roofing, etc.

You can also get indoor, finished, and furniture-grade wood.

But many lumber yards also carry wood-replacement, or "wood-like", products that are used in conjunction with standard wood products. These can include:

  • Hardboard or Fiber-cement siding – this is man-made siding such as Masonite or HardiePlank®.

  • Steel and/or Rebar – steel products can include commonly needed components such as fence posts, fence accessories, connectors for decking, or other parts. Rebar would most often be paired with projects where wood is framing the area to be a cement walkway or foundation.

  • Fasteners and similar hardware – projects require many different types of fasteners, whether those are deck screws, wood nails, roofing nails, lag bolts, or others.

  • Preformed concrete and cinder blocks – outdoor decking projects can require preformed concrete anchors for resting low-hanging decks, while cinder blocks can be used for a variety of bases including temporary structures or even raised garden beds.

  • Custom services – these cover a broad range of offerings ranging from custom size boards and custom finishing to special orders for wood, non-wood, and hardware products.

Pickup or Delivery

Beyond just having a wide variety of products for your projects, full service lumber yards give you the option to pick up product or have them delivered. For small jobs, pickup is often a great option, as there are no specialized vehicles needed; plus, helpful employees can assist in loading your purchases. But for large jobs with over-sized wood planks or specialized accessories, delivery is likely the way to go as it can save you time and money in the long run.

Lumber yards have grown beyond just a source for various wood products. Taking the time to procure what you need at once can keep you from waiting on that "one" part and delaying your project!
