Bob and Kyle Dwyer started Dwyer Hardwoods in February 2006. At that time, the focus of the business was to bring top quality domestic hardwoods into Rhode Island, where the brothers recognized a void for such lumber. Using their mill connections in New York and Pennsylvania, they worked to bring only the highest quality hardwoods into the Ocean State. Today, as they expand their product line, they continue this effort.


Over the past few years, the business has grown to include a full line of exterior products, ranging from western red cedar boards, to a comprehensive selection of hardwood decking. Without abandoning the original focus of the business, Dwyer Hardwoods has become known as a top source for these products and can offer them with a level of customer service that other companies simply cannot offer.


Bob and Kyle have many years experience in the field as do their employees, which gives the business a crucial edge in the industry. Bob Dwyer continues his work in the field and in his shop immediately adjacent to the Dwyer Hardwoods warehouses. In fact, every employee at the company has some degree of experience in the field.


Dwyer Hardwoods is a true family owned and operated business. "Everyone who works here is familiar with a broom," Kyle Dwyer once told a reporter at a local newspaper. While the typical business roles are in place, you're just as likely to see either brother at a computer as you are to see him on a forklift or sorting boards at 9:00 at night.
