Talbert Building Supply's roots date back to the late 1930s when Edd and J.D. Talbert began harvesting timber for a sawmill. After returning home from World War II, Edd rejoined his brother and continued to grow the operation that would become Talbert & Talbert Lumber Co in the 1950s. Edd's son Danny grew up working in the lumber company that his dad and uncle founded. After graduating college and helping run the lumber company's sawmill and planer mill operations, he started the retail store in 1983 that would become Talbert Building Supply, Inc. in 1990.

Our story's next significant milestone occurred in 1993 when Talbert Building Supply joined Lumbermens Merchandising Corporation (LMC). LMC is a leading Forest Products and Building Materials Buying Group owned by independent lumber and building material dealers across the country. This membership gives us billions of dollars in buying power and access to industry-leading lumber mills and brands, market intelligence, and innovative building solutions. This relationship and our strong supplier partnerships enable us to source a broad and ever-growing choice of products and services.

We opened our second location in 2004 with the purchase of the historic West Durham Lumber Co. Our expansion continued in 2011 with the opening of our Clarksville, VA yard. In 2015, we were fortunate to find an opportunity to expand westward, opening a location in Asheboro on the former Hedgecock Lumber Co property.

We remain an independent, family-owned business that can quickly respond to our customers' needs with exemplary service. Whether you are a contractor, builder, remodeler, architect, commercial firm, industrial operation, or DIYer, Talbert has the products, services, and knowledgeable team to help make your projects a success.

Thank you for organizing and inviting us to participate in your show event. It was without a doubt, the best organized and most informative event that I have attended. It is truly a pleasure to be associated and included as a primary player in your companies’ efforts to educate your customers not only on new products but the proper way to use them.
