Lumber Products

When you partner with Walker Lumber & Hardware you get more than a handshake, you get our promise to deliver the right product at the right price so you can do what you do best, build. Walker Lumber & Hardware has been providing quality building materials and unmatched customer service to Middle Tennessee’s building professionals since 1949. Conveniently located in Nashville, we are a full-service lumber yard and Ace hardware store.

If you are doing home improvements, planning a remodel, or building new, we have generations of experience and knowledge to share, and we look forward to helping you with your next project. We carry a full-line of lumber and wood products for everyone from the do-it-yourselfer to the building professional. Our lumber is selectively sourced for quality, and comes in a wide range of sizes , including those hard to find long lengths. We take pride in the lumber we stock and our unmatched customer service. For items we do not stock, many can be obtained in 24 hours or less. Let us know what you need and we will make every effort to source it in a timely manner.

Back in 1949 when Thompson Lane was just a little two lane road, Robert Walker bought the old Coleman Lumber Company, and started selling oak flooring in Nashville and the surrounding area. Mr. Walker joined the Ace Hardware co-op in 1966 to better serve his customers, by providing local builders with their hardware needs. In 1973, he sold the business to his son-in-law, Bob Harwell, who has grown Walker Lumber & Hardware into the lumber company it is today, carrying on the value of exceptional customer service while providing superior building materials. Still on the original property at 527 W. Thompson Lane, Walker Lumber and Hardware is big enough to serve Middle Tennessee’s finest builders, yet small enough to make the local homeowner feel like they never left the neighborhood. Fast and efficient service is foremost on our minds when interacting with our customers from the largest construction companies to the individual homeowner. Fair and competitive pricing, higher quality building products and exceptional service are the core values that have kept us in business since 1949.
