Portland Lumber Stores Reviews

"I went there to buy two pieces of wood. Upon walking in the door, there stood a gorgeous picnic table, one just like the one I wanted and had been looking for. I asked how I could get it home. "Well, that will cost $35 for a delivery." "$35????? Wow." I asked to talk to the manager. I asked him if there was something we could do? "Well, if we're going to be in your area.... Yep. Tomorrow." "WOW!" Then I talked some more to the man out on the floor about how to treat the raw wood. I was asking him what he thought would look nice? Stain it something or leave it the natural look or what? He said, "Just a minute." He came back with some blocks of wood the same kind as the table and 4 samples of the stain. "Here. Try the different stains out on these and see what you like best." I was so impressed. This store really went out of its way! I was talking to the man who delivered my table - again about finishing it. He told me my table would need resealing yearly, or every other year at least, so keep it dry. I wasn't thrilled at that idea. Then he said he has his grandfather's table today and that it is as good as new. His grandfather coated it with 8 layers of marine varnish. Eight! We talked and decided that since my picnic table isn't going a boat that's going to be out in the salty

, maybe 4 coats would be plenty. That's a lot of work - sanding and applying all that - but it's a one time deal and the table will be good to go forever. I hadn't known about the annual sealing until he told me and the marine varnish will save me from having to do that. It was fun hearing his stories about his years with that picnic table, too. It's a very down home, family run business and they have been in business more than 40 years. I can't say enough good things about them!

"It went ok, but not great. It was hard to determine what carpet I needed/wanted. All the carpet seemed very expensive - this was for a rental house - I did not need great carpeting. One salesman finally said "all these are 30% off" and steered me toward some more reasonably priced carpet. The process to get the install scheduled was odd. I selected the carpet. Then they send someone out to measure. Then I had to go BACK to the store to pay for it. Are you kidding me? No over the phone or online option to pay? A trip to the store just to sign paper and give them a credit card. Hello

, 1988 called and wants it's point of sale process back. It seems like there were a few other phone calls in there as well - the process was overly complicated and involved far too many phone calls. It would have been far easier to go to a carpet store, pick carpet, have them come out and measure, and call it done. And it really wasn't any less expensive at Lowe's. The install was scheduled, they arrived on time, and did a nice job. It looked good when they were done. Grading them down for the awkward sales and scheduling process.

is very convenient for me. I didn't interact with the employees too much. We pretty much found everything ourselves because it was so easy to find everything. The aisles are labeled very well so the customer can find what they need with ease. The employees that did talk to us were friendly, too."

"The local one that I deal with is very responsive, I bought an electrical panel from them and the main breaker was broken, and they were good to exchange the product for us without any hassle."

"We are doing several remodel projects and are frequent customers of
Portland Lumber Stores Provider Name Locked
. They are always well-staffed and immediately ask if they can help when you walk into the store. For a smaller hardware store, they have a surprisingly good selection of items. I like that I can get in and out of the store relatively quickly."

"Everyone in this friendly neighborhood store really goes the extra mile to be helpful and answer questions. (especially from novices) They take the time to listen and help you locate items on the shelves. It is a great neighborhood resource and I prefer to spend my money locally rather than the bigger chain hardware stores. They are always very welcoming to children in their store too!"

"Took some time to get estimate due to sub-contractors schedule. Estimate was high but selected this firm because I was not able to supervise & observe job in person and wanted to go with a firm that would stand behind the work. Work was slow to start and materials were left at job site for some time - this is a rental house and the tenant called me concerned that materials could walk away since they were just left along side the street. Installation was satisfactory with one exception - the gate latch was installed such that you had to reach over the gate when exiting from the yard; the tenant is short and couldn't get out. Called

and asked to have sub-contractor take care of this - took too long to fix this problem.

"For the last three years I have lived in the area, this
Portland Lumber Stores Provider Name Locked
store in the Pearl has been an incredible resource. All of the staff are kind and helpful, and have steered me clear of problems well ahead of finding them myself half way through a home project. I highly recommend them for just about any small- to mid-sized home project."

"EXCELLENT. I returned to this store a couple more times for more advice and supplies. They outfitted me with only what I needed to get the job done and I saved a lot of time and money. The job I did looks great and not because of my hard work. The stain/finishes they sell are less toxic that you would find at other places and the people staffing this store come with years of experience. Knowledge is key! Also, I was given a pile of Christmas cookies - I must have looked starved but I ate them all the way home and they were great! Kind thanks to somebody's mommy (sorry that I forgot your name)."
