“…staff super helpful, patient, and friendly…”

I walked in with only questions since we’re still trying to decide on what sort of decking material we want to use. Not only was the staff super helpful, patient, and friendly, the product looked great. My experience at other lumber yards in the area pale in comparison.

“…staff is helpful and knowledgable and the wood is beautiful.”

If you’re looking for wood for an old house or similar structure, I recommend this business. The staff is helpful and knowledgable and the wood is beautiful. Yes, it costs a bit more than off-the-shelf products but using reclaimed wood makes an ENORMOUS difference in the final product. Older wood is more durable, has greater depth, and fits with the look of the historical structures. Lumber Baron provides quick turn-around, easy access, back-to-the-basics kind of service. We should all support this type of operation in the Bay Area especially when such critical resources are becoming harder and harder to find. These folks deserve my 5-star rating without hesitation.

“When I need top quality redwood or cedar they are my first choice due to the selection and knowledge.”

I have done business with Max and his Father before him for almost 20 years. I own and operate a wood turning and millwork company. When I need top quality redwood or cedar they are my first choice due to the selection and knowledge. For me it is worth driving the extra mile and have always been satisfied. They are always busy which is a pretty good indication that they are a first rate operation.

“…great customer service!”

Just had the best experience with Lumber Baron!  The guy (I didn’t get his name, but he was super patient and helpful) who helped us pick out 10 2×6 redwood boards, Isais, Max, and especially Andrew, who went (way) above & beyond in the delivery.  Just a super group of guys and great customer service!

“Our contractor thinks they have the best quality lumber in the East Bay.”

This place is my favorite place for lumber.  I love going to Ashby lumber for everything else they sell, but their attitude is almost always: don’t waste my time.  This place explains everything.  We are building a deck, and our crew had to ask about exactly one piece of wood, that had some knots.  The other pieces had a few knots, but nothing noticeable.  Our deck is big, and much of the wood we ordered was 20′ pieces, so it’s impressive to have such good quality.  We had the store select the wood, because we didn’t have time.  Our contractor thinks they have the best quality lumber in the East Bay.
