The Pros and Cons of Using a Lumber Liquidator

Posted on June 11th, 2014 by

Using high-quality lumber for home renovation projects can add more aesthetic value to your place of residence; however, it can also turn a simple project into an expensive task very quickly. For that reason, many homeowners turn to lumber liquidator stores to purchase discounted materials that will still manage to meet their high-quality demands. These warehouse-type stores are stocked with hardwood, engineered and laminate flooring as well as decking materials and various other types of lumber that may be used for numerous projects around the home.

The Pros of Buying Lumber from a Liquidation Merchant

Since DIY home improvement has grown in popularity in recent years, there are more liquidation outlets opening across the country, making discounted lumber available to a larger amount of consumers. This means that you do not have to drive far in order to get the quality lumber that you need at a discounted price. These stores will often have a good selection of clearance items available, and many styles and finishes for you to choose from. You may be inspired to take on several more renovation projects once you visit a lumber liquidator location and see the number of materials they have available at a reasonable discounted price.

The Downside of Buying from a Lumber Liquidator

While the inexpensive price of lumber will always attract interested homeowners looking to save a buck, there have been some instances where customers have not been pleased with the service or materials that they received from a lumber liquidator. Obviously there is no help with installation or advice offered from knowledgeable flooring experts at these locations. Some have reported to have little or no customer service at all. While the lumber from liquidation centers is typically of good quality, there have been times where a customer has ended up getting what they paid for, meaning inexpensive, low quality lumber that ended up costing them twice as much to replace making it a risky move.
