Honsador Lumber’s Hilo Branch was created in 1991 to answer the need for a competitive and strong wholesale lumber supplier on the Big Island’s rapidly developing east side. Opening of our doors in our Hilo Wood Treating facility was a welcomed addition to our already existing Kona and Building Specialty Branches. With careful and determined steps by its management and staff, the Honsador Lumber Hilo Branch built a solid reputation, and became a responsible and contributing member of the business community by supplying quality building materials. We are happy to be here and enjoy serving the Big Island’s east side.
What we do-How we do it:
From general contractors’ large residential and commercial projects to homeowners’ smaller “fixer-upper” projects, we are eager to provide personalized assistance to all our customers. As part of the largest building material house in the State of Hawaii, our branch has the depth and breadth of inventory of a much larger company. Our source stock of the most popular lumber and plywood products is stored on Oahu and is available to us in a matter of days—not weeks or months. In addition, our supply line is shortened by methods we employ on the mainland USA through a materials consolidator and our own support facility in Portland, Oregon. In this regard we are unique and fast to respond to urgently needed materials.
Our branch carries a comprehensive supply of materials necessary for most residential projects. Framing lumber, plywood and an assortment of siding products make up our core inventory. We also carry popular sizes of Insulate vinyl windows by PlyGem, our own Islander Cabinetry, decorative and slab doors, Simpson Strong-Tie hardware, drywall and accessories and more. But we don’t stop there. Commercial contractors enjoy the convenience of our stock of steel studs, Dryvit EIFS system, acoustical drop ceiling and scaffolding. We understand the unique challenges of building to withstand the weather of the Big Island’s east side, and we insist that all our products perform properly in these climates.
