Calvin Roberts

Vision Ace Hardware

"Vision Ace Hardware has carried Ecolife for at least three years, and we’ve seen a dramatic drop in our waste from inventory losses. We used to lose approximately 10 to 20 pieces from a 208-piece unit of lumber, and with Ecolife we now lose only 2-3 pieces. Our lumber inventory seems straighter and looks good while in stock here. Our customer base is a mix of commercial and consumer/DIY, and both types of customers have been very happy with Ecolife thus far."

Danny Talbert, President and Owner

Talbert Building Supply, Durham, NC

“Talbert Building Supply has been selling treated lumber from Tucker Lumber for over 20 years. Their quality lumber and service are second to none. Since their conversion to Ecolife we have had fewer complaints about lumber shrinking and warping. After the unusually hot summer we have experienced, that is very important.”

Bob Heidenreich, Owner

The Deck Store, MN

“Because it repels moisture so effectively, Ecolife doesn’t crack and warp in wet environments like other types of treated lumber. We highly recommend it for framing, substructures, and decks. Ecolife is our first choice. You can’t build great decks with bad materials.”
