84 Lumber does not publish information about discounts for contractors on its website; however, it operates a specific website geared toward sales to industry professionals, including contractors and builders. In 2013, 84 Lumber reported $2 million in sales. Of that revenue, 75 percent came from contractors rather than government agencies or do-it-yourself workers.
84 Lumber works specifically with contractors who build or work in assisted living facilities, multi-family housing complexes and other construction. Contractors who wish to make a lumber purchase can visit the 84 Lumber website or contact the company directly for a quote.
Professionals who know the market and industry standards are more likely to be offered contractor discounts when working with any supplier, according to the University of Massachusetts.
