Tedford’s Building Materials & Hardware: The Ultimate Hometown Retail Experience

Contractors and homeowners, experience friendly, knowledgeable service, and the local, hometown touch—all the while having the highest quality building materials and hardware store in Ipswich at your fingertips.

When you want building materials and hardware for your latest project or construction job, there’s no need to settle for less than a full service lumberyard and hardware store in Ipswich. And you don’t have to deal with the big box chain stores to get what you need either.

At Tedford’s Building Materials & Hardware, you can get the best of both worlds:

  • A wide-variety of high quality building materials and hardware at competitive prices.

Times have changed since we first opened our doors at Tedford’s in 1946. Over the years, we’ve seen businesses come and go. We’ve seen big box stores rise in popularity, but then not meet the needs of their clientele. Through it all, we’ve been able to stay true to the Tedford name—providing the same high level of friendly, knowledgeable customer service while offering the best of the best in lumber and hardware in Ipswich.
