Who Buys From Marks Lumber

Tags: Project Inspiration

Marks Lumber is a mid-sized specialty sawmill located in Clancy, Montana. Because of our size, we have the opportunity to work with many different kinds of customers, each with their own needs and objectives. Our size, specialty, and circle sawn products put us right in the sweet spot of being able to help companies of all different sizes achieve the highly sought-after Montana look that Marks Lumber’s materials are known for. Here’s a list of just some of the diverse customers we serve and the services we provide for each one.


Builders of all sizes make up our largest customer base. Contractors seek out Marks Lumber for our ability to manufacture high-quality circle sawn siding, flooring, lumber, and timbers. This circle sawn material is what sets Marks Lumber apart from other lumber retailers, as circular sawmills become more and more obscure.

When we work with builders, our team is often involved from the very beginning, helping with take-offs and delivering accurate quotes they can count on. We also help builders stick to their timeframes and constantly try to keep them informed on any material shortages or upcoming delays that may affect projects.


Often, for developers, the unique beauty of our material speaks for itself. Our rough-cut Douglas fir is sought after by many high-end developers looking to complement Montana’s natural beauty rather than detract from it with the more stagnant vinyl, engineered, or cement alternatives.

We are starting to see a massive trend in developers seeking to achieve a more natural aesthetic, such as the “Mountain Modern” look, which utilizes more wood, stone, and steel. This more natural look inevitably leads many developers to Marks Lumber. We are the trusted choice for developers due to our ability to consistently produce these high-end, timeless materials that blend seamlessly into our beautiful environment.


Marks Lumber also supplies landscape and playground material to municipalities all across Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, Utah, and North and South Dakota. We offer Engineered Wood Fiber (EWF) certified by the International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA). Our EWF meets the ASTM 2075 standard for size and the ASTM 1292 standard for impact attenuation for a fall up to 12 feet in height. Learn more about our EWF here!


Just because we’re a sawmill doesn’t mean we don’t serve the general public. Many of our customers are homeowners looking to improve or create their dream home or just get projects done around their house or family ranch. Marks Lumber is here to guide you throughout your entire process! We can offer friendly building advice, product recommendations, and help you figure out how much material you need for your specific projects. Marks Lumber isn’t just another run-of-the-mill sawmill; we’re here to help everyone create their dream home. Contact us today for more information on how we can help you with your next project!
