Facility & Capabilities
Vermont Hardwoods operates out of a 30,000 square foot building in the heart of Chester, VT. We are easily reachable from all directions, and a short ride from the I-91 corridor.
All lumber is stored inside our enclosed warehouse. While not heated it rarely drops below freezing even in the coldest winter, as it is adjacent to our office and shop areas. In the summer it is opened to our air conditioned shop to maintain acceptable levels of temperature and humidity for lumber storage.
While we don't have a "loading dock" per se, we do load and unload van and flatbed trucks of any size legal to drive in Vermont.
Our forte is straight-line millwork, that is, almost any profile of a linear extruded (moulded) shape. This of course includes our primary lines of picture frame moulding and flooring, but can extend to all kinds of other products that fit similar parameters. For a quote, contact us!
