About Us

Serving the Community for 3 Generations

Somerville Lumber opened for business in nearby Somerville, NJ in 1935. Founded by Abe Schumer, the business originally sold building materials reclaimed from demolished buildings. As business began to grow, we moved to it's current location in Bridgewater.

Abe's son, Jack took over the business and was instrumental in modernizing and expanding the company. Based on a culture of Customer Service, Somerville Lumber was hugely successful as a provider of quality building materials to both the contractor and to homeowners. Jack's wife, Susan, joined the company as business began to grow and helped to enhance the product lines from her understanding of the customer's perspective.

The business continues to grow as our decking department is now the DeckCenter and moved to occupy its own space 2 doors down with over 6000 square feet of indoor decking and outdoor living displays. In 2017 we opened a second DeckCenter location in Flemington, NJ.
