Nyack Lumber The Place To Shop

We have been thinking about adding a proper master bedroom and enlarging our kitchen for a few years now, and recently decided to take the plunge. We called in about 3 contractors to get estimates. The estimates were all very close to each other, but were much more than we wanted to spend. We made the decision toact as  general contractor for the job. We would oversee the framing, electrical, plumbing, and purchasing of the supplies. This is definitely not for the fainthearted, but can save you lots of money. This blog is not really about our experiences so far as General Contractors, but more about praising our local supplier Nyack Lumber. When we first decided to price materials for the job we decided to give the materials list to Nyack Lumber, Lowes, and Home Depot.  As I am in real estate I know many people in the construction trade,and several  of them suggested that  the quality of the lumber that we would get from Nyack Lumber was better than the lumber you get from the big box stores so we were happy when  Nyack Lumber prices were slightly lower as well. We always prefer to buy from local Nyack vendors. The real point of this story is Brian Joachim, the owner of Nyack Lumber. Besides picking up the phone every time we had a question, and his patience with us neophytes - he got us out of several jams. Our mason had disappeared along with our deposit, and we were really depressed. Good masons are very hard to find, and we were having no luck finding someone. We called Brian and he put us in touch with Andrew . Andrew came because Brian called him, and is squeezing us in between a couple of other jobs. This is just one example among many where Brian has saved us aggravation and money. We can’t say enough about this man and his business.  If you don’t call Brian at Nyack Lumber the next time you need building supplies you are making a big mistake - thank you Brian for all your help.     http://nyacklumber.com
