    Even Paul Bunyon would be proud to work in this lumberyard.

    With values like that still intact after 80+ years it’s no surprise the Carter Lumber Company has grown to 180 stores across 10 States.

    Here at America’s Best we see values reflected differently for each of the companies we review.  What we like about Carter Lumber is how each location still feels like the single hometown lumber store and not just one of larger 180 store chain.

    We also found helpful friendly service built throughout the customer experience.  In the store, of course.  Local delivery services are offered and there’re lots of online resources like tax rebate information and calculators that can help estimate the cost of your projects.

    These folks are FSC Certified.  That means they are serious about being responsible in the production and consumption of lumber and other forest products.  We think that’s a smart choice for a lumber company.

    After eight decades of growth most companies would begin to see their hometown values diluted due to the sheer size and management requirements of the Enterprise.  But not Carter Lumber, here’s to the next 80+ years.
