This makes every LMC Dealer a strong and respected partner in the industry. LMC Dealers' Buying Power provides the quality products professionals seek at a competitive price. For quality and price, builders, remodelers and tradesmen find more value for their business with LMC Dealers' yard than at a big box.

Estimating Services

Davis-Hawn is pleased to assist its current and prospective customers in developing estimates and quoting current prices for budget purposes on their upcoming projects.  In our experience, the most accurate way to estimate lumber for a project is (1) for the builder and framer to first agree upon lumber specs (species and grades) for each component, (2) for the framer to work up a detailed material takeoff, (3) to have competing quality-oriented lumberyards price out the exact same list (no substitutions allowed), and (4) then for the builder to use his training, experience and common sense to determine who he wants to do business with  and what a reasonable budget number should be.  Please see our blog archive for more information on lumber estimating, its limitations, its risks, and how to better manage it for greater profitability and fewer headaches.

Delivery Services

We understand that well-executed scheduling is key to your profitability, so we strive to always deliver your material when and where you need it. We work with you so your carpenters don’t sit idle or pull off the job for lack of material - potentially costing you days and wasting your time. Our account managers, dispatcher, load pullers and drivers work together as a team to rapidly pull your materials (in the correct order for use) and carefully deliver it to your jobsite in the most convenient location possible. We offer:

*  Dump bed deliveries - the fastest, most efficient delivery method for framing materials
*  Truck-mounted forklift deliveries - for fragile or appearance grade products and especially tight jobsites
*  Hot shot deliveries for unexpected needs and punch out items

Our drivers deliver daily to jobsites in established neighborhoods like the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Lakewood and many others. We value your relationship with both the homeowner and their neighbors by training our drivers to tread lightly and protect tree root systems, landscaping, and the neighbor’s property and peace of mind.

Delivery fees depend on jobsite location, types of products and size of delivery (often waived for larger projects). We are your partner in striving for jobsite efficiencies and quicker cycle times, so check with our dispatcher for scheduling options.
