As you can see, Compton Lumber has been at the fore-front of the recycle curve, selling lumber from responsibly managed forests, and stocking environmentally friendly products.
While many businesses want you to believe they are "green", we just do it.

KIRO 97.3FM broadcasts a Home improvement show called "Home Matters" hosted by builder Pete on Saturday Mornings.

Laminations of Shop Birch

3/4" Shop Birch Plywood

We import a C-2 grade of Birch Plywood from China that has been proving to be an excellent low cost plywood. Using between eleven and thirteen plys of veneer, the product is a wonderful substrate for high pressure plastic laminates, tile or any other item you might like to use.

Even though the skin is graded as a C-2, customers have found it good enough to use as is, and just finish it after a quick sanding!

Because of the multiple plys, you will find very few voids and a very stable sheet.

Come on down and check it out for yourself!

Home Matters is a home improvement and lifestyle show that covers everything having to do with your home: treating your deck, winterizing your home, keeping your electric bill down, and how to pair your food and wine.

On March 15, 2014, Pete hosted our own Steve Compton to talk about Lumberyards, Plywood and Mouldings and the difference between a Real lumberyard and the big box stores. Take a listen to the program:
