  • Thanks for all your help!!!

    I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to help me, you were definitely the missing puzzle piece to link everything together!  And if you talk to John, please thank him also, and tell him I still tell stories about the tremendous job he did on the siding job. I'm hard to please, but he exceeded my expectations, and that's extremely rare.

  • I've been a long time customer of Alexander Lumber Company. The lumber, service, and advice is top quality.  Also, they will cut and size your lumber.  A service you don't often get at other yards.

  • Mark Tyson Construction was working on a remodel for a customer. The customer was specifically looking for RTA brand cabinets. We were not able to get that brand of cabinets, but we were able to get Schrock Trademark cabinets.

    I was able to put together a quote for the customer that matched the same specifications that they were looking for in the RTA cabinets.

    Between the contractor, the customer and I we were able to come up with a design that matched what they were looking for and in the price range they desired.
