    A lumberyard is a site where wood and other building materials are manufactured, processed, stored and sold for use in various construction and home improvement projects.

    Replete with a wide range of products for a vast array of purposes, a typical lumberyard's inventory can consist of immense supplies of wooden boards, planks, studs, doors, paneling, fencing, lattice, siding, roofing, decking, moulding, trim, plywood, and other types of millwork.

    These are typically organized by size, wood type, and purpose, stacked and stored for retail sale on pallets and/or shelving, with inventories often piled high and sectioned into numerous rows. Employees of the lumberyard assist customers in identifying the proper items for their particular job or project, and can also custom-cut specific pieces to match the required dimensions. 

    In that sense, lumberyards additionally serve as useful resource centers for homeowners, contractors, architects, designers, developers and builders to peruse a wide variety of construction-related products and services, inspect specific examples, and learn about the best merchandise and optimal procedures for completing their tasks and achieving their goals. 

    Many lumberyards, besides the aforementioned custom cutting, also offer other associated services, such as measurements, quotes, carpentry advice, and deliveries—either to customers' homes or job sites. Some even provide comprehensive project management and customization, from analyzing blueprints to actually helping outline and strategize entire projects.
