Wilson Lumber A to Z

Heather Smith Price - Friday, May 24, 2019

After 70 years in the business we’ve learned a thing or two about the kinds of products you need on the job. We’ve got the big stuff of course – the lumber and doors and windows that are essential to any new construction or remodel job – but while you’re here picking up that order of lumber or that replacement window, you might also need to pick up a few of these on-the-job essentials:

hardware tools
  • A: Air compressors, like the oil-free, maintenance-free Bostitch air compressor, to power your air tools.
  • B: Bolts, and nuts too, of all shapes and sizes for projects big and small.
  • C: Caulk to seal the deal, whether you like Lexel synthetic rubber sealant or DAP DYNAFLEX Indoor/Outdoor Sealant, find the right seal for whatever your application.
  • D: Downspout extensions to divert water away from the foundation you’ve worked so hard to build.
  • E: Extension cords in several different lengths to make your electric tools reach wherever you need them.
  • F: Felt paper, both regular and synthetic, to add a waterproof layer under roofing shingles.
  • G: Garden tools, from hoses and sprinklers to water fresh sod, to rakes or shovels perfect for landscaping.
  • H: House wrap to prevent rain from penetrating those newly constructed walls.
  • I: Irwin professional grade tools and accessories, whether you need a drill bit or saw blade, chisels or a chalk reel.
  • J: Joist hangers of all strengths and sizes to anchor things like decking, floors and ceilings.
  • K: Kwikset door hardware, whether you need knobs, levers or handles or something fancier like electronic locks for keyless entry.
  • L: Letters (and numbers) for your mailbox. We even have the mailbox if it’s time to replace that too.
  • M: Mouldings to put that finishing decorative touch on your home or project – crown moulding, door and window trim, base mouldings, chair rails and more.
  • N: Nails, the kind you drive with your hand and some for your nail gun too.
  • O: OZCO decorative fasteners to build the pergola or arbor of your dreams.
  • P: Paslode tools including brad nailers, framing nailers and finish nailers, and all the accessories that go with them.
  • Q: Quik Drive auto-feed screws with increased speed and power saving you time and money.
  • R: Roofing nails by the box or by the bucket, 1-inch and 2-inch and a few sizes in between.
  • S: Screws of all kinds from drywall to wood.
  • T: Tiedowns to keep your purchases from flying out of the pickup truck.
  • U: Utility knives and box cutters from retractable to foldable, heavy duty and all-purpose.
  • V: Vise grips so you can get a grip on everything that needs to be done on your project.
  • W: Wet It and Forget It, a miracle-working solution to easily remove moss, mold, mildew and algae from vinyl siding, concrete, wood decks and patio furniture. No pressure washing, no scrubbing. Just like the name says – wet it and forget it.
  • X: eXpanding foam to fill holes and gaps around plumbing, pipes and jambs.
  • Y: Yellawood pressure treated Southern Yellow Pine, the best there is and a must-have for any project.
  • Z: ZIP System sheathing and tape for easy weatherization.
