Sawmill DirectContractors and woodworkers in Wilkes County, NC, may find it difficult to get decent pricing on wood for projects as wood costs continue to rise due to inflation and tremendous demand in the lumber market. Working directly with your local lumber mill is the way to go when it comes to expanding your offerings or sourcing specialty woods.

 Big box stores and wood suppliers may appear to be the easy way because of their accessibility, but when it comes to expanding your offerings or sourcing specialty woods, working directly with your local lumber mill will make your life easier.

What Is Sawmill Direct?

Sawmill direct is a streamlined model in which lumber is harvested and transported directly to the sawmill, where logs are processed into lumber. After the lumber is processed, the sawmill markets and sells the lumber to buyers in both commercial and private settings with no middleman to increase costs. By utilizing the sawmill direct model, both the seller and the buyer win. 

Working directly with a sawmill avoids mill brokers and retail businesses, which may employ questionable tactics to get the most money from their consumers, such as selling lower-quality lumber at high-grade pricing.

Buying Sawmill Direct

By purchasing directly from Church and Church, you can know for sure that you are getting the best price possible for exactly what you want. Sawmill direct not only can help save you money on your next project, but we can also further customize your order by doing the following:

  • Choosing specific wood species for your project - Hardwoods come in a variety of colors and textures, with yellow poplar and oak being the most popular. Many specialty or regionally-specific hardwoods, on the other hand, may be difficult to come by at major merchants.
  • Custom Cutting - The terms riftsawn, quartersawn, and plainsawn refer to three different types of cutting. Each of these processes has a significant visual distinction as well as a different proportion of the usable product.
  • Custom Sizing - When working with a mill, sizing can be specifically chosen for what you are using the wood for. 
  • Finding the appropriate quality - There are several qualities of hardwoods that are explained by their grade. Grading is a complex process using rules by the National Hardwood Lumber Association.
