Celebrating a Local Legacy: Direct Lumber & Door Celebrates 10 Years 

We are proud to announce that Direct Lumber & Door turned 10 on March 15, 2022. To celebrate this milestone, each DLD location brought in pizza, cake, 10-year celebration T-shirts, and a message from DLD’s President, Michael Severa.

DLD’s First Decade 

In 2012, DLD was founded with the goal of building lasting partnerships with customers by providing the highest level of craftsmanship, expert insight, ad quality lumber and building products. 10 years later, DLD has now set the standard of excellence in both the state of Colorado and the lumber and building materials industry with a people-first approach: 

  1. Pride. DLD takes pride in everything they do including customer service, employee involvement, and community outreach. 
  2. People. The greatest asset to any company is its team—DLD would not be celebrating this milestone without Team DLD. 
  3. Responsibility. As a locally grounded company, DLD has a passion for serving the Denver community with the highest standard of dedication.  
  4. Improvement. DLD is committed to continuous improvement, innovation, and superior customer service. 
  5. Dedicated. Our dedicated team at DLD is driven to deliver quality service on every job, so matter how big or small. 
  6. Excellence. DLD continually strives to go above and beyond to meet the needs of our customers and exceed customer expectations.  

For the past 10 years, DLD has operated with the philosophy of empowering their team to make decisions that best serve the customer. Direct Lumber & Door will continue operating with this goal in mind and keep their customers at the center of their focus. 

Strong Culture & Hometown Values 

The team and people at DLD truly sets the standard for industry excellence, expertise, and customer service—that’s why DLD’s working culture and customer model are so successful. When DLD was founded in 2012, the company started with 57 employees, 21 of whom are still there today carrying on DLD’s legacy. 

“In the saturated building supply arena of the Colorado Front Range, DLD still operates as a hometown, employee-first, do-right-by-the-customer company,” says Michael Severa, President of DLD. “We have a team-first attitude driven from the top down and we will continue to operate this way for the next 10 years.”

DLD prides themselves on strong company culture with these goals and values in mind: family, continuous improvement, and local community involvement.
