With the goal to connect with local homeowners and contractors, Badger Building Center has established itself as one of the top independent lumber yards in the region, servicing North Idaho, Western Montana, the Flathead Valley and Eastern Washington.
Originally established in Sandpoint, Idaho, in 1983 by husband-and-wife Mike and Sandy Badger, their son Lee Badger acquired responsibility of the company in 1990—with the company poised for substantial growth in the years to come.
The following year, Badger Building Center opened its second location in Post Falls, Idaho, followed by its third location in Kalispell, Montana, in 1996. The original store in Sandpoint was relocated to Sagle in 2003, and in 2013, Badger completed its northward expansion with the launch of their Bonners Ferry store—positioning themselves to guarantee optimal service and delivery to the four major corners of the Inland Northwest.
“Our four-shop network is capable of meeting our customers’ needs with efficiency and ease,” says Lee Badger, “setting the foundational pillars for long-term success.”
Today, Lee and his wife Kim operate the business, where they are supported by General Manager Rich Carvalho, a tenured and dedicated management team, and more than 40 employees spread throughout four locations in North Idaho and Montana.
“Our employees are committed to continued education of industry trends, skill development and knowledge of cutting-edge products to keep Badger’s customers satisfied with their purchase and experience,” says Badger.
The Badger family is unwavering in their assertion that this dedicated team is the final “family ingredient”—along with the highest-quality products, exemplary customer service and competitive pricing—that keeps Badger Building Center on the top of the independent lumber yard list, faithfully serving a region of continued growth and development, with anticipation of more to come.
Badger Building Center carries all your building materials for new construction or do-it-yourself projects. They stock a wide variety of building products and deliver them directly to job sites. From lumber, treated lumber and engineered wood to drywall, insulation, doors and windows, roofing, siding, decking, concrete, cement and masonry, Badger Building Center carries it all. And if you can’t find the product you’re looking for, they are more than happy to special order it for you.
“We pride ourselves on customer service and product knowledge for homeowners and contractors alike,” says Badger. “Our employees will walk customers through the whole process—beginning to end. No project is too big or too small.”
When it comes to what Lee, Kim and the rest of the Badger team find most rewarding, they can agree that it is helping customers plan, estimating projects and watching their local communities grow. After more than 35 years in the building industry, Lee and Kim attribute the success of Badger Building Center to their dedicated customers and knowledgeable staff.
Badger Building Center believes in supporting the communities that so generously support them, donating time and resources into all four of their stores’ communities. Badger is a large supporter of local 4-H programs and youth sports.
If you are in the market for a local, family owned building supply company that offers quality customer service, quality products and competitive pricing, you can trust that Badger Building Center will deliver. Badger Building Center is ready to serve the Bonners Ferry community Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 5pm, and Saturday, 8am to 4pm.
