Shipping & Returns
Thank you for visiting and shopping at Builders Warehouse. Following are the terms and conditions that constitute our Shipping Policy.
Domestic Shipping Policy
Shipping charges for your order will be calculated and displayed at checkout. All shipment times are shown in business days (Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and holidays). Shipping times are subject to each carrier's daily cut-off time and dependent upon warehouse turnaround. Our standard handling process ranges from 1 to 5 business days. External influences may impact our ability to get your shipment processed as fast as possible.
Overnight delivery is only available for orders with delivery addresses within the continental United States. Delivery delays can occasionally occur.
UPS Shipments that are already in transit are subject to a rerouting fee of $18 per shipping label if shipping to an alternate address than that which is on the order. Freight orders can not be redirected after the shipping date.
We will provide you with a tracking number once your order ships. Delivery times are estimated and may be subject to change. Shipping delays created by natural and human sources may affect delivery time.
High VOC items cannot be shipped to California, Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Maricopa County Arizona, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Salt Lake County Utah, and Vermont. California also has restrictions on many other items.
Shipment to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses
We are currently unable to ship to P.O. boxes, U.S. Territories, and APO/FPO/DPO addresses.
Types of orders:
Regular Stock- Products we regularly keep stocked in our warehouse
Special Order / Non-Stock- These products are never stocked in our warehouse. Depending on the supplier, special orders can either be shipped directly to our customer’s address, or they must first be shipped to our warehouse. Special orders always require longer processing times.
LTL/Freight- Less than truckload freight shipping (LTL) is used for the transportation of small freight or when freight doesn’t require the use of an entire trailer. This shipping method can be used when freight weighs between 150 and 15,000 pounds. Any material 6’ and longer will require freight shipping. All James Hardie Siding ships freight.
Order Lead Times:
Regular Stock - Stocked orders usually ship 1-2 business days after your order is placed. Expedited orders must be placed before 2 pm CST
Freight Orders - Allow 5-7 days for the order to ship. These are larger and often more complex orders that require more time and care to prepare for shipment. Freight orders will NEVER ship out the same day as the order is placed.
Special Order, Will Call (ships to our warehouse first)- Allow 7-10 days for the order to ship.
Special Order, Direct (ships directly to the customer)- Allow 5-7 days for the order to ship.
