Discount Decking, Discount Siding Products

We sell closeout inventory of premium decking, siding, trim and other building materials our parent company no longer promotes. This could be due to color, SKU or line discontinuation or if they have too much inventory on hand.

Season to season, our inventory rotates so there is always something new for your next project!

Yes we do have samples! You can order online at this link below and we will ship them directly to you via FedEx.  Samples are $5.00 each.  In the sample packaging, you’ll receive a one-time $15.00 coupon code for when you place your order.

When a manufacturer discontinues a color, our parent company discontinues a product line, or they simply have too much inventory on hand, that’s where your savings begin! Warehouse ‘71 takes over that inventory, checks it for quality and makes that inventory available to you, for 30-50% below retail price.

And our low prices don’t mean low service. We’re here to answer your questions, provide industry expertise, and help you find the right product for your home improvement project!

Absolutely! All of our products are first rate material directly from manufacturers. Even if you’re purchasing discontinued color or SKU, the manufacturer warranty still applies to your purchase so you can be confident your purchase is protected.

Manufacturer warranty information is found on product pages in our store and on our Resources page. If you have questions about the warranty, please reach out to us!

For the safety of your pet and the delivery drivers, all pets should be placed inside or restrained away from the delivery area.

YES! Before shipping your order, our team double check your order for accuracy and condition. Use the unloading process as an opportunity to check the condition of your product and the accuracy of the order. Don’t sign for your order until it is completely unloaded and checked.

If you experience any problems, contact us immediately at customerservice@warehouse71diy.com or 860-528-0495 and send us pictures so we can make it right!

If the carrier delays your delivery due to inclement weather, we will work with the carrier to get you the next available delivery date. We’ll keep you informed throughout the whole process to ensure you can plan accordingly.

Warehouse '71 Order Pick-up

During the check-out process, you’ll select a pick-up appointment.

Before you come to Warehouse ’71, make sure you have the following items:

  • Appropriate pick-up vehicle, see requirements
  • Heavy duty straps and tie-downs
  • Order confirmation
  • Driver’s License or Identification

When you arrive, park in the designated Warehouse ’71 parking spots.

  • For box trucks, truck and trailers, or other large vehicles, pull through the gate into the lumberyard and park in the designated Warehouse ’71 parking spots.
  • All other vehicles park in the main parking lot.

Check in with the Warehouse ’71 Representative by calling the number on the parking sign.

  • Show the Sales Representative your order confirmation
  • Complete the Pick-Up Paperwork

Once you’re checked in, we’ll get you loaded up and on your way!

  • Our Operations team will load your vehicle with the forklift. If you did not bring a flat floor truck or trailer, you may need to hand load your order.
  • You, the customer will secure your load with straps and tie downs

Your safety and the safety of others is our priority. Many of our products are long, heavy, and cannot be transported by car, SUV or pick-up truck. For items on the list below, one of vehicles listed is required to pick-up your order. If you arrive without one of the required vehicles, we will hold your order until you can arrange the right vehicle. Additionally, you as the customer, will be responsible for straps and tie-downs to secure the load.

For many of our customers, renting a box truck is a convenient and inexpensive way to safely transport their orders. We recommend you renting from Budget or Penske. These box trucks have flat floors (do not have wheel wells protruding into the box), which allows our operations team to load your product quickly and without risk of damage.

U-Haul trucks DO NOT have flat floors and may require you to hand load your order. Use the deck length of the truck to assess if your order will fit. Do not use the total truck length as that includes the bulkhead which is not usable storage space.
