When you contact Lakeside Lumber, we will take you through these steps for a successful project:
2. Define the Project
Lakeside professionals can review your plans, answer questions, and make suggestions. We can also visit your home for a precise material measurement. This free service saves you time and eliminates the inconvenience of ordering insufficient or excess material.
3. Prepare Estimate
When you request a siding bid or request a decking bid a Lakeside carefully prepares a cost estimate. This estimate provides the basis for good customer communications. Referrals of reputable siding/decking contractors will be provided upon request.
4. Prime or Stain
Lakeside Lumber has the unique ability to prime or stain any of our real wood products at our lumber yard. Lakeside siding and trim are available with a specially formulated Miller Paint Co. Lakeside Primer, a premium quality, oil rich, alkyd primer for exterior siding and trim. Each board is hand fed into a flood coating machine which saturates and then back brushes each board on all four sides.
Prepriming and Prestaining Process
Miller Paint Company’s limited lifetime warranty is available when you apply Miller’s Evolution exterior topcoat to Lakeside’s preprimed siding in accordance with Miller Paint’s specific warranty guidelines.
In the event you prefer a more natural look, Lakeside also has the ability to stain any of our products any color or brand you specify using the same flood coating process. It is a process that Lakeside has perfected over several decades. Our experienced sales staff is ready to help you decide which choice is right for you.
Please note: Color variations are common with any untreated wood product as some untreated boards may be darker than others. Unlike a solid body primer or top coat, applying a stain to raw wood will not have the effect of creating a uniform appearance for each board. Consequently, stained samples provided by Lakeside Lumber won’t be an identical match to every board in any subsequently placed order.
After our estimate gets your stamp of approval, we will establish delivery dates for your materials. In order to afford maximum protection during shipment, your siding or decking package will be assembled complete with bottom boards. During periods of inclement weather, your order will also be covered with Lakeside Lumber’s heavy duty plastic wrapping for protection against the elements during installation.
