We established our business in 2006 and Gowan Lea began as our preferred supplier. That was ten years ago and they are still our sole supplier for timber. They have time and time again offered us value for money and the timber has always been A grade quality. The product is always delivered when promised which is imperative for our work deadlines.

Anthony, Jim , Kev, Cheryl, Sharyn, Gary and the rest of the team have become great mates and we look forward to another 10 years working together. I would recommend their business to anyone who wants a good product and great service. Thanks Guys!

I’ve been dealing with Gowan Lea Timbers for almost 8 years now have and found their one-on-one service their best attribute by far. Not only are they competitive price-wise, but you can talk to their sales people who understand the trade and accommodate our projects with tight timelines. This is very important to us as we do large, complex commercial jobs, often interstate, such as Hoyt’s Cinemas, Hogs Breath Café’s, festival fitouts etc, which can be logistical nightmares, but are never a problem for Gowan Lea. I have found their hardwood products to be the best quality of anywhere I’ve seen and if a certain size doesn’t work they will custom make it to do the job. I have had a long standing relationship with Gowan Lea and will do for a lot more years to come.

Over the past 20 years I have been using Gowan Lea Timbers for all my building and construction needs. They have always supplied great quality timber, both hardwood and engineered products. The staff both yard and sales are always helpful and exceed with service. I am always finding myself recommending them to both trade and the home owners. Even when working on some of the largest construction projects on the Sunshine Coast, I have found Gowan Lea Timbers materials to be exceeding where others fail.

 

James Nicholls, Director. Nicholls Building PTY LTD.

There are a number of timber yards on the Sunshine Coast but do they deliver the great customer service and knowledge that Gowan Lea Timbers deliver at competitive prices?

Gowan Lea Timbers staff are always ready to help and go out of their way to make sure you receive the best quality timber on site and on time. Our sales reps knowledge of timber is fantastic and the girls in the office are always available to help with any questions. We've used them for over 10 years and have always been more than happy with the customer service, competitive prices and quality product.

 

Jason O'Hara - Construction Manager. Cooinda Constructions.

I build high spec. homes for myself and clients and wouldn’t go to anyone else other than Anthony at Gowan Lea Timbers to provide the standard of timber that I need. Time and time again I have been able to rely on Gowan Lea to source and supply high grade stock to enable me to complete projects in time and with an outstanding finish. I can work confidently in my job with my clients because I know from experience that Gowan Lea will provide honest and reliable products and service whenever I need them. It is also reassuring to work with a local timber business that has been established for so long and has access to its own timber mill. Working with Gowan Lea is always an easy and reassuring part of my work.

Gowan Lea Timbers recently supplied timber boardwalk materials to two of our projects:

 

  • The Pedestrian and Cycle Bridges at Victoria Point (Redland City Council)
  • Noosa Main Beach, Park Rd Boardwalk Replacement (Sunshine Coast Regional Council)

 

The supply requirement for both projects was for treated hardwood decking and joists. Supply time on short contract periods was critical and we found Gowan Lea Timbers worked hard to satisfy the project timing and quality requirements. They also provided a proactive and appropriate response to site issues that arose from time to time through the project.

 

Our Company looks forward to continuing our business relationship with Gowan Lea Timbers.

It comes down to experience more than anything. Obviously we look for competitive pricing, like most businesses; but more importantly, the company wants suppliers and subcontractors who actually know what they are talking about. For example, Hutchinson Builders have been buying timber from Gowan Lea Timbers for a long time, and there is not a lot they don’t know about timber. Our relationship with Gowan Lea Timbers means that we can pick up the phone and say “We are doing a high-end resort and we want something that is not going to split or crack” – and they will provide a quality product. What they supply to us is a product that is going to stand the test of time – and their advice is expert and professional.

"The personalised service we receive is particularly important to us as our project managers know that they will talk to the same person every time they ring, and that they can quickly get a response to urgent requests for material or information."
