Managing Hardwood Lumber Supply for Job Sites & Woodworking Projects

Baird Brothers products on the Renovation Hunters job site.

A job site manager’s responsibility is to ensure that the team has all the tools and building materials needed to get the project done. And as a contractor, hardwood flooring and lumber supply should be on the top of your list. Whether you’re remodeling a home or building from the ground up, fine hardwood products have a way of elevating any new space or project.

Hardwood Projects For Home Building and Beyond

Hardwood lumber projects can range from small furniture and accent pieces to interior shelving units and hardwood floors.

If you’re hoping for a good end result, it’s important to invest in high-quality materials before beginning your project. Afterall, working with low-quality wood means more time sanding down rough edges and smoothing out imperfections.

For your next project, save time by sourcing the highest quality products possible, whether you’re working with hardwood floors, intricate millwork or custom mouldings.

Also, be sure to take advantage of experienced distributors and sales staff, like the professionals at Baird Brothers, to minimize headaches (and scope creep) while also getting insight on the best product options. These professionals are a great resource to have in your back pocket, even if your questions are as simple as asking about the newest trends (like live sawn white oak for floors).

Keep Job Site Projects Moving Forward

It’s no secret that the pandemic caused some drastic changes to the building industry, from skyrocketing prices to difficulty sourcing products. In fact, in many cases, some of the biggest residential construction headaches stem from supply chain concerns.

Planning, now more than ever before, is a vital component of any build. That’s why many builders and designers choose suppliers that are able to work within project schedules, troubleshoot and adjust to change orders when necessary.

When it comes to working with a lumber yard, Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods’ mission has always been to deliver the best when it comes to quality and experience. We understand the stresses that contractors, designers and consumers are under, and we work every day to eliminate those concerns from the ordering and installation processes.

For professionals looking to hone their project management skills, the National Association of Home Builders offers a variety of courses and certifications.

Choose the Best Hardwood Flooring

As any flooring contractor knows, installing hardwood floors requires a lot of preparation and planning. When choosing an option, it’s important to keep in mind that there are several pain points that Baird Brothers Fine Hardwoods can help eliminate when sourcing lumber.

    • Quality Control
    • Product Availability
    • Environmental Concerns

All Baird Brothers products meet our high quality control standards, and we implement the latest technology to ensure the best products leave our buildings.

Product Availability

Environmental Impact

Sustainability is a priority to Baird Brothers and has been for decades. Because of the practices we adopted in the 1980s, we are able to utilize nearly every inch of the sustainably harvested timber we purchase. For many people, it’s important to know that their home has a small environmental footprint, and at Baird Brothers we work to make that a reality.
