We’re happy to answer your questions and help you find the right lumber for the job.  At our yard, we allow the customer to hand pick the lumber or building materials and load up first.  This gives the customer the opportunity to make changes to the order or selection as needed.  One of our yard sales staff will assist you with your selection, write up a yard ticket for you to bring to the counter and help you load up.

Our History
Capitol City Lumber Company was incorporated in 1945, but due to World War II was not started until April 1, 1947.
 
After World War II, our founder, James Anglin Nicholson, started the company with one empty building, a two ton truck and a single load of plywood. During those days when materials were hard to find, he established his place in the community by offering quality lumber and building materials at a fair price.
 
Although the company has grown, we strive every day to live up to our founder’s original mission of quality, service and dependability. Today, we’re the lumber company Raleigh relies on for products and service that stand the test of time.
