About Us

Sound Cedar Lumber, a Cedar specialty store, was founded in 1980 in Downtown Conway. Over the years, it has moved a few times before moving to our present location at 2600 Cedardale Road in Mount Vernon over 20 years ago.

In 2018, after working at Sound Cedar Lumber for 12 years, Robert Desmarais and his wife Kris bought the business. Together they have transformed the store into not only a cedar specialty store, but a lot more as well.

Since 2018 we have added about 6 times the inventory of the previous owners and have added many more product lines including composite decking and cement board siding.

Robert loves being a part of the community he has worked in for the past 46 years. Having the ability to support numerous non-profit organizations, schools, and individuals that need a boost is something that Robert will always be grateful for.

Our experienced staff have extensive knowledge of the products they work with and are ready to help transform your vision into a reality.

Stop on by, we would love to visit!
