Redwood Siding - Building the Dream

LEADING BY LISTENING

Listening to Customers - Changing our Company
 
We went online and a new breed of customer started calling - YOU - the internet customer. Listening to you has changed our business. Listening to you has BECOME our business.
 
We started traditionally with truckload orders, lumber yards across the country, limited product lines. But you asked us for special patterns, beautiful woods, smaller volumes, delivery to the farthest corners. We began to seriously listen.
 
Focusing, answering your questions, searching for what you really want has forced us to evolve. Move away from the traditional "If you don't see it, we don't have it" to "Let me find it for you!".

LEARNING BY ASKING

Asking Your Questions - Changing an Industry
 
Traditionally it has been about BIG Manufacturers and BIG Retailers. Unless you were a very BIG builder, you had to be satisfied with what you found at your local lumber yard, Lowes or Home Depot.
 
Answering your questions, searching for what you really wanted has forced us to find manufacturers that will create to order. These suppliers work with us, run specific sizes and patterns, expand their product lines, manage less than truck load orders. They help us bridge the gap between source and customer.
 
The only way to bridge that gap is to truly listen to you, our customer. Understand YOUR individual project and product requirements. Then search for the best product and price match from supplier to your door.

MAKING THE CHANGE

Managing the Supply Chain - Manufacturer to YOU
 
Mill Direct to You has been the biggest challenge. How to afford a semi flatbed delivery when your order only fills 10% of its load?
 
We changed. We bought our own Buffalo Lumber fork lift trucks, regionalized orders and managed drivers. As customers came from far and wide, answering their specific product requests in distant corners made this logistically and financially impossible.
 
Again we changed.
 
We sold the trucks and created an entire network of shipping companies that we now do business with. We developed the technology systems to connect suppliers to our customers, to manage our supply chain. To assure that your order gets to your job site when you need it.

The Buffalo Lumber Value Proposition:
The Best Product & Price Match Delivered to Your Door!


 

A 15 minute consultation with Buffalo Lumber
could save you EIGHTY THOUSAND DOLLARS


It is TRUE. We saved one of our customers $80,000 over what "other experts" were telling them by understanding the priorities of the decision maker.
 
Our expertise lies in communication. We know people and we know wood. We can show you the various options available to you and give accurate ideas of cost associated with those options.
 
Our job is not to convince you to buy wood from us. Our job is to determine your wood priorities and prescribe a successful method to achieve them.
 
We point out the pitfalls associated with each option you consider and allow you to make an EDUCATED DECISION.
 
100% commitment to the long term success of your project means- We are not always the best price option up front. Buffalo Lumber specializes in doing it the "right" way not the cheapest way. Long term success often costs more up front.
 
We are not less expensive if your local lumber yard has the wood in stock. We become a good deal for things the local guys have to "order in".
 
We are not a bidding machine. We understand that everyone shops for the best lumber value. Our position on charging for quotes is that we are not charging for quotes at all- we are charging for the "due diligence" to do the job right.
 
Every Buffalo Lumber project is evaluated and carefully examined for potential problems and long term success. If you get a Buffalo Lumber quote it means your chances of success are very high because we won't even quote you if you are not serious about the performance and care of the wood.
