Yella WoodBad Actor

B Review updated:

A real A hole runs this company. If he didn't have money and viagra to run around with whores he'd be considered white trash. It's amazing how money can turn a piece of Sh_t into someone important in this society. Decent People... Beware of this CEO! He is the meanest most arrogant A Hole in the world. Hopefully soon he will get what he has coming to him

    I paid $2.57 more per 2x6x12 from Owen Lumber for Yella Wood than I could have bought treated lumber from Lowe's. Within two weeks the boards that were tightly spaced upon installation had half in gaps in them. Worse than that was the cracking. I have boards with one eighth inch wide cracks in them for the entire length of the board and some are split all the way through the thickness of the 2x6. When I complained a sales rep from both Yella Wood and Owen Lumber came to my house to see my new deck. The first thing out of their mouths was "that's what wood does". Then I showed them the two satellite decks (off of bedrooms) that I had redone a year ago with lumber from Lowe's that still look great. The Owen Lumber rep offered to send out a dozen or so replacement boards but stated that he could not guarantee that the replacement boards would not crack in the same way and possibly even worse. What a lousy product.

    @Tw77 Do you still have the yella wood holding up your roof? Or did you have to replace the wood?

    I am a bit leery when I read complaints. I wonder if it could possibly be a competitor trying to give a company a bad name.

    In this case I think the company earned it's bad name. Not aware of the owner's personality and proclivities and really don't car about them. The fact is their decking and lumber products failed prematurely. Very prematurely.

    Wish I would have saw this before using the Yella Wood products. What should have been a one and done project now needs to be done over due to their inferior products. Their pressure treated pine lasted several years and then rotted. Older portions of my deck were built prior to this and using a different product. That portion is still like new. All decking was sealed and stained yearly so the the premature failure of the Yella Wood leads me to suspect the pressure treatment process was insufficient. In thirty plus years as a homeowner and deck builder this is the first time I have ever had this happen to a deck I built using pressure treated lumber.

    The Yella Wood on my little back porch was rotting in only two years of being built. I have untreated wood outside that has lasted much longer than that The stuff is crap. I asked a man about it that builds decks and boat docks and he said they won't use it, stay away from it.

    Our deck is 11 years old and is falling i from rotted wood. I have a house in another city and it was built in 1995. It still looks new and not one piece rotten. I had knee replacement in July. Two months to the day I walked out on the deck and my knee went thru the deck. I have had continue pain since last Thursday. This wood is the worse. Do not buy it.
