“Since 1955, the Landon Lumber Company has been providing the shoreline area with exceptional service and quality products at competitive prices.”



Jim and Lorraine Landon started their business in a barn in Guilford, CT.  Landon Lumber Company quickly outgrew it’s space and moved to Madison. Multiple moves and an expansion speak to the exceptional service and ever-growing product line that drives this thriving business.  


Don’t let their name fool you, Landon Lumber Company doesn’t just carry lumber. Their vast range of departments include the following:

Known for their exceptional quality and careful product selection, no second guessing is needed here.  



Scroll through their website, and it is apparent why the company has been in business for so long. Landon Lumber Company offers a buying guide that is easily segmented by categories ranging from railings to roofing.

Not sure how much lumber you need for your new deck? Don’t worry, with multiple calculator options such as decking, roofing, and siding, determining materials needed for your next project is easy. Try the decking calculator here.



Have a question? I did. I gave them a call early on a Monday morning about creating a raised garden this coming spring. Not only was my question answered on whether or not they had my building materials, but the voice on the other end of the line suggested a more cost efficient set up than what I was originally planning.

Answering a simple question about best gardening practices is one thing, but Landon Lumber offers many services. These include lumber cutting, blade sharpening, lock services and more. One less thing to worry about on your next project.

Landon Lumber prides themselves on “offering a more personal one-on-one experience, treating every customer, both big and small, with the same respect and service.” Happy customers over the years can attest to this type of service.
