Channel Lumber has been serving the Bay Area with lumber, custom milling, and assembly for over 50 years. It is our honor to provide our customers with high quality products and outstanding service. Compliant with FSC mission and vision, we are conscious of environmental matters and are proud to have products that come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits.

Located in Richmond, California, our 14-acre facility is fully stocked with extensive inventory, which allows for prompt delivery, product versatility, and customer satisfaction. We have the largest lumber delivery fleet in the Bay Area; our steadfast delivery services bring the materials you need to your front door.

Channel Lumber is proud to have a knowledgeable and friendly staff that is committed to providing superior customer service alongside the high quality products you deserve. Our staff has the experience and expertise to make sure your project is finished correctly and efficiently. 

At Channel Lumber our goal is to bring architects, engineers, and product managers into the project from the beginning. By building these relationships, this allows Channel’s team to inform the architects and engineers of product availability and performance at the beginning of the project – raising the bar of professionalism and eliminating costly delays. Channel aims to be a trusted partner in the project, allowing for a flawless build with top-tier products.

Channel Lumber has the largest inventory of wood products in the U.S. that is Certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and LEED.
