Our History

About Us

Established in 1949, Weirton Lumber has earned the reputation of being the area's #1 lumber store.

The business was started by three men; Robert C. Smith, H.W. Hair, and Harry Trushel. It was Smith who, years later, gave current owner Mance Frankovitch a job. Mance, while still in college, began working in 1971. After college he was offered a full-time job and stayed on. Together, Smith and Frankovitch formed a partnership and bought out the others. They stayed together until 1987 when Smith passed away.

Today, Weirton lumber continues to grow and serve customers throughout the tri-state area. We cater to contractors, do it yourself, hobbyist, commercial and industrial customers.

Our longevity is directly related to our professional sales staff. At Weirton Lumber we are truly happy to assist you with all your building and remodeling needs. Being a member of LMC,  the largest independent lumber/building materials buying group in America,  affords us the ability to source high-quality products at competitive prices.
