About The
Turkstra Lumber Company

The Turkstra Lumber Company

Turkstra Lumber is family owned company first established in 1953 by Peter Turkstra Sr. It became to take shape into the company it has become today when Peter amalgamated his business with another family business J.R. Hardware. From the very foundation, Turkstra Lumber is built on traditional values and will always be a traditional lumber yard, where you will always be able to buy your nails and screws by the pound.

We have become so much more than a lumber yard while still managing to maintain those traditional values set forth by our founder, and we continue to develop and find new ways to support our communities by proving quality services and building products, creating job opportunities and working with various community outreach programs, food banks, after school programs and so much more.

Throughout the decades Turkstra Lumber has becomes a staple in the communities in which we operate. We now have 11 retail locations and 5 specialty divisions across southern Ontario and hundreds of contractors, home builder and DIYers alike have come to rely on us as industry experts and project specialist.

We are invested in you, we are invested in your projects and we want you to be successful with whatever you are hoping to build.  From a simple project like a mail box, to the most complex beam designs we are here to help you every step of the way. With services such as design, delivery, installation on select products, an endless range of products with industry leading technology and over 65 years of industry experience, we are confident that we have what it takes to help you get the job done.

Our motto “Always on the Level” is as old as the company itself and we still proudly stand behind and try to live our motto with every interaction.
