Trim distribution, by the numbers

The Principia 'Stat of the Week' puts the spotlight on exterior-trim channels.

BY HBSDealer Staff

Lumberyards sell more than half of residential exterior trim in the United States, with almost 6,000 locations nationwide. Big-box retailers—such as The Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Menards—are the second-largest outlet for exterior trim materials, with over 3,700 locations, although specialty one-step dealers sell more exterior trim materials by revenue.
