This pick-up date may be subject to change based on availability of the product; however, we will make every effort to keep the customer abreast of any changes, so that a new pick-up date that is convenient for the customer can be scheduled. If the order is available earlier than anticipated, we can notify the customer so they have the option to move up the pick-up date, if desired.
Once the full order has been pulled and is ready for pick-up on the delivery date, we will call to remind the customer to pick-up.
The customer has 45 days from this date to pick-up the order to avoid any restocking fees.

REASONABLE ANTICIPATION OF DEFICIENCIES IN OUR LUMBER
*Customers should be fully aware that cracks, splits, and checks in wood is normal and to be anticipated.
- This will be most pronounced in logs, timbers, corbels, mantels, and slabs purchased from us. They may be very fine fissure/cracks in the slabs and mantels, but in timbers (or materials such as corbels created from timbers), cracks can be up to 1″ wide. THIS IS COMPLETELY NORMAL AND AN ENHANCEMENT TO THE CHARACTER OF THE WOOD. Please see our front entry and showroom as an example of cracking and checking wood.
- As it relates to structural integrity, we have not found cracking and checking to reduce this. We cannot find any reputable source that suggests it does. However, we are not engineers and if this is of great concern to you, we suggest consulting a structural engineering expert.
- If you find this to be unacceptable, we will help to guide you to a different product that allows you to achieve your desired appearance.
- Cracks, splits, and checks are unacceptable in any of our milled/pattern materials such as flooring or carsiding. However, within reason, every piece will not be perfect. We always suggest buy 10% more than you think you need to accommodate for some flawed pieces (as well as waste you will create). You may bring back any pieces (in accordance with the above return policies) for a full refund or exchange.
- While we make every attempt to keep our pine timbers under the cover of a roof, sometimes there will be areas on our timbers that might experience accelerated weathering causing the timbers to have areas where the color has shifted to yellow or brown or silver. Further, during transport sometimes the timbers and lumber can get road grime or other dirt on them. Further still, during the stacking of timbers small pieces of perpendicular lumber is used to separate the bundles. These can leave small lines in the timbers. Some amount of this should be anticipated by the client. As a lumber retailer, our expectation is that most of our clients are going to clean/sand the materials and then apply either a stain or paint. None of these circumstances will affect those treatments. The client should expect slight amounts of discoloration and/or dirt/filth to be on their lumber. And while we will always return our materials (in accordance with the policies listed above), these types of wear does not cause the materials to fall outside of those guidelines. It is most critical to be aware of this if you are receiving the materials sight-unseen via delivery. Please do not anticipate perfectly clean timbers. If you are concerned about this, please ask a representative to send you a photo of the pected appearance.
