Save Big on Lumber
Lumber is a part of most building projects. We can help you get the specific sizes for your project and help you save on shipping. We work with a mix of over 20 top mills and also several specialty mills to accommodate:
- A wide range of grades - from premium to utility
- Virtually all sizes
- Pressure treatments and color options for exposed beams
- Different finishes - rough, dressed and everything in between
- Shipping coordination and consolidation
- Variety of quantities, including broken and/or restacked bundles
J.B. Warnemunde explains how Global Sales helps with your lumber challenges.
Global Sales: Your One-Stop Shop For Lumber
The price of lumber fluctuates like the price of gold or grain. We keep a careful eye on the market to help our customers choose the right time to buy. This is especially important for our stocking customers. We don’t want one order, we want to be your trusted partner for years to come.
Walk into most home improvement stores an you’ll find 2x4x16s, but not much else. Often building plans call for something longer or thicker. Just tell us what your plans are and we will help you order the lumber and efficiently ship it.
PRESSURE TREATMENT OPTIONS
One of our customers in the British Virgin Islands wanted pressure-treated pine without the pine characteristics for their exposed beams. The mill we work with hand picked to the grade and used a clear (not green) pressure treatment so the beams looked gorgeous.
BERMUDA ROOFING SOLUTIONS
The builders we work with in Bermuda use full dimension lumber for roofs. The heft and toughness of rough lumber is great, but the tricky thing is the lack of uniformity. So, we offer the best of both worlds – S1S1E (smooth 1 side, 1 edge). This creates enough uniformity while still getting the benefits of rough lumber.
Shipping companies can help you get your products from Point A to Point B, but they have no incentive to help you save money. The lumber mills are experts at lumber, but aren’t going to know how to help you maximize your container or consolidate your order with items from other sources.
That’s where we come in. We can help you find ways to SAVE BIG on shipping. It is part of our service and – admittedly – a fixation of ours. With a lot of knowledge and a customer-focused attitude we find creative solutions for our customers. We’ve saved our customers tens of thousands of dollars.
"I work with Global Sales because of the value for the money and efficiency of getting what I need. We started out small and once I found out what they could do, it hasn't stopped since."
