SRI Decks Leverages Buying Power to Stock Materials Despite Lumber Shortages
Denver-based deck builder credits their large-scale buying power and supplier relationships with helping them source building materials in spite of low supply
Denver, CO (PRUnderground) August 28th, 2020
While many contractors have been forced to put jobs on hold because they can’t get the lumber or composite materials to finish their projects, SRI Decks has continued business as usual in spite of COVID-19-induced industry shortages.
Service Rendered Inc., commonly known as SRI Decks, specializes in custom decks, arbors, pergolas, and trellises in Colorado. With 27 years of experience, the company has established a reputation in the greater Denver area for its unmatched craftsmanship and highly competitive prices.
When the COVID-19 outbreak started, SRI Decks was quick to see potential problems.
“Lumber mills were slowing down production or closing completely, and manufacturers of composite materials were also lagging,” said Joe Thede, SRI Decks Owner. “At the same time, the construction industry was booming as people were taking advantage of more flexible work hours to tackle home improvement and landscaping projects. We saw the perfect storm brewing.”
Thede’s forecasts were accurate as big box stores’ lumber inventory ran dry, and contractors reported having to delay work because they couldn’t source the needed wood or composite materials.
“We heard stories of contractors abandoning deck or patio projects because they were just a few boards shy of being able to complete them,” said Thede. “We’ve been fortunate enough to keep supplies in stock and haven’t missed a beat.”
Thede said his company’s advantage lies in their massive buying power due to the high volume of their business as well as their long-lasting relationships with suppliers.
“We invest a lot of time into cultivating relationships with these vendors, and this has paid off as we have been able to get what we need when we need it.
Whether it be a simple garden trellis, a garage, or a custom pergola, SRI Decks is a preferred name in exterior construction projects in the Denver area. They offer a number of “extras” such as staining on all wood projects, a three-year warranty for labor, and guaranteed completion dates.
