Since 1958, Totem has proudly made the preferred supplier list of the leading building contractors and construction companies in the Chicago area, as well as many of the foremost exposition, entertainment, institutional, manufacturing and industrial accounts throughout the mid-west. Serving and supplying the trades with the most commonly used grades of Chicago lumber, from architectural through construction, is the first thing our customers want from us. But keeping our inventories current with everything from drill bits to batteries -- by restocking no less than two times a week -- is what really separates Totem from the competition. We know what you need and when you need it and that’s why Totem Lumber & Supply has earned the reputation as the place Where the Pros Shop! Many of our customers depend on us for “One Stop Shopping” because we have virtually everything they want.
Lumber & Specialty Lumber Products
Because Totem’s inventory of products is so extensive and we are constantly adding to it, publishing a complete list of the thousands of items we offer would take more space than we have. As a result, we’re confident that Totem Lumber & Supply can provide you with all the Chicago lumber products you need from our two huge lumberyards. Totem has on hand everything from treated to untreated lumber; FSC®-accredited products; and specialty lumber products like millwork, joists, windows, doors, skylights, cabinets, trim, siding and decking. Please visit our Brands & Links page where you can jump to our supplier and manufacturer’s websites to examine specific products or download spec sheets. This same page also has links to the websites of the associations from which we have received our accreditation as FSC-certified Lumber and Plywood distributors.
