Serving Professional Builders since 1932

Carter Lumber Build with Stability

See how Carter Lumber is different and why the nation's best LBM professionals consistently choose us for their careers.

Why We're Different

We'll admit it: Having been around since 1932, we're a little bit old school. We still believe that a family-owned company should treat its people like family. We think outside interests like investment firms and stock prices shouldn't control your day at work. We know that the exact same business model can't possibly succeed in every market. We understand that the most important things we could ever offer our employees are stability and peace of mind. We value and reward the people that work hard for us and we give them the freedom to do their job to the best of their ability.

With all the changes that have transpired this year in the lumber retail business, we know there are a lot of seasoned LBM professionals looking for the stability of a strong family business that values its employees. That company is Carter Lumber. We prove it every day to our current employees and we'd love to prove it to you.

Since 1932, We Are Carter Lumber

For over 80 years we've been a family-owned business serving the professional builder community across the Eastern United States. Today we have over 140 locations spread across 13 states and we are the nation's 5th largest lumber retailer with manufacturing capabilities. We've expanded numerous times over the last few years and we have plans to continue entering markets that make sense for our business's sustained growth.
