BY HBSDEALER Staff

Kent, Ohio-based Carter Lumber acquired the assets of DSD Builders Supply of Canton, Ohio, a former subsidiary of Stark Truss. The asset purchase of DSD Builders Supply included the inventory, rolling stock and equipment. 

“Carter Lumber has always positioned itself to take advantage of opportunities in the markets we serve”, said Jeff Donley Carter Lumber’s Chief Operating Officer. “By making this investment, we continue to strengthen our market position as one of the premier building materials suppliers in the country.”

Carter will operate the store under the Holmes Lumber brand, which has been a division of Carter since 2004. Holmes Lumber opened the new store today in Canton, Ohio and adds to its current facilities in Millersburg, Ohio and Sugarcreek, Ohio. The store will become a full service lumberyard, with expanded product offerings. In addition, many of the key employees including former manager Mike Kiefer were retained in the transition.

“We are very pleased to bring this new store into the Carter Lumber Family of Companies," said Donley. "We look forward to the long term growth potential in this market."

Carter Lumber was the Home Channel News Pro Dealer of the Year in 2007.

New American Home to shine at Builders’ Show

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Just outside of Orlando, Fla., a 4,181-sq.-ft. home with a clean, modern design is carrying on a tradition now its 29th year — the unveiling of The New American Home.

The project is sponsored by The National Association of Home Builders, organizers of the International Builders’ Show set for Orlando Feb. 8 to 11, and Builder magazine.

As NAHB’s official show home, TNAH gives building industry professionals an opportunity to see design trends, construction techniques, and materials that can be used in any new or remodeled home. The showcase products in the home are provided by members of the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council.

Phil Kean of Winter Park, Fla., the architect and builder of the 2012 home, tipped his hat to Classic White Box architecture of the 1960s and 1970s with his design for this year’s show home. Modern touches include certifications with the National Green Building Stardand (Emerald); US Department of Energy’s Energy Star certification; Flordia Green Building Coalition (Platinum); and a US EPA Indoor airPlus Qualified mark.

The house is built on an infill site in an older neighborhood close to downtown Winter Park.

Demand for alternative decking to rise

BY Brae Canlen

Demand for wood-plastic composite and plastic lumber, used in decking, railing, trim and other building materials, is projected to rise 13% per year until 2015, according to a report from The Freedonia Group. Advances will be driven by a rebound in construction expenditures from a depressed 2010 base, and growth will be boosted by increasing consumer demand for building products made from composite and plastic lumber, instead of more traditional materials, such as natural wood, according to the Cleveland-based industry research firm.

Decking, which was the leading application for composite and plastic lumber in 2010, will experience the greatest increase in demand through 2015.  Other growth areas will include molding and trim, and windows.  Demand for wood-plastic composite lumber will post more rapid gains than that for plastic lumber through 2015, advancing over 16% annually to $2.5 billion. Gains will be driven by ongoing consumer interest in composite lumber as a substitute for natural wood products in such applications as decking and fencing.  Because wood-plastic composite lumber incorporates recycled materials, it will be seen as an environmentally friendly building material.

Plastic lumber demand is forecast to rise nearly 11% per year to $2.8 billion in 2015.  Gains will be spurred by rising consumer interest in the material because of its low maintenance properties.  The efforts of manufacturers to create plastic lumber with more realistic wood grain textures and surfaces will also support demand.
