Santelli Lumber is a fixture in the Finger Lakes region. Nothing says "reputation" more than what our neighbors and customers say about us. Here are just a few of the many.

  by Jim Miller, Finger Lake Times

PALMYRA - When brothers Alfred and James Santelli bought land along Route 31 in Lyons and opened their lumberyard in 1945, that corridor consisted mostly of farmers’ fields. Not any more.

Over the last 65 years, while the setting has changed to a busy commercial one, the business also has grown and changed along with it, shifting its focus in response to the arrival of major hardware and home improvement chains and the burst of the housing bubble. But through three generations, the Santellis have remained, along with their stock of paint, windows, storm doors and, of course, lumber.

“It is a good place for the serious do-it-yourselfer to come,” said Arthur Santelli, 50, one of Alfred’s sons and the current president. “They like coming to our stores because we have knowledgeable people at the counter that can help them.”

But despite that retail facade, the core of Santelli Lumber’s business is now wholesale, Santelli said. The company sells lumber and supplies to other businesses and builders ... click here for entire article ...

Here's What Santelli Pole Barns Owners Tell Their Friends ...

“My husband was thrilled. He couldn’t believe how fast they got it up. They came in the morning and they had it done in the evening and all they had to do was the floor the next day. He was just thrilled.” “My husband was thrilled with the young men that came out and built it and we were thrilled with the gentleman that we spoke to that gave us all of the information…”
     C.S., Clifton Springs

“As I tell everybody; we got more than what we expected and being in the building business in the past, I was very, very intrigued even the way that the contractors worked. Art Santelli put this one together with what I wanted and he knows his business and that is what I have to say, he knows what he is doing and as I told him, I thought he overbuilt in many cases, but he said, “We build to make them last.” What more can I say? “As I tell people, when you can say today that you got more than you expected, that is very, very rare in anybody’s language; I am the first one to criticize when things are done shoddily.”
     M.R., Macedon

“Two and a half days… it goes up in a hurry… the fellows that did it were very nice”.
     G.J., Honeoye Falls

“Yes, I was very happy with the time frame… especially with the weather because we hit about the worst of the weather that it has been this winter… we had that rainy ice storm. Yes; they were out there working… I am very pleased”.
     J.H., Williamson

“They started it at 7 a.m. on Monday morning and they were finished by 10:30 on Tuesday… Yes; it was fast and they did a great job.”
     R.T., Palmyra

“If I had to do it again and find a Pole Barn builder…I would choose Santelli Lumber. I had seen some of their buildings along where I travel and a sign that advertised them in the yard.”
     M.W., Sodus

“I am extremely happy… I had interviewed probably 4-5 different people prior to going to Santelli and I can’t remember where I saw them, but I stopped at the Lyons store and also the Palmyra store and the people in town told me to go to the other one and I was driving that way anyway and that is where they take care of the barn building and all of those arrangements and I talked to Art Santelli and then he got me in touch with Andy.

"I can’t say enough about them; the people that they contracted to build the barn were excellent and I would have no problem whatsoever using them and I have recommended them to many people, including a friend of mine who is a contractor and a builder who met with Andy three months ago… He was impressed and my father was very familiar with the building trade and both of them were very impressed with the quality of the work and the materials that we had for this project here.”

“I would have to say that it was excellent. They were excellent craftsmen and they did exactly what they told me they were going to do in a very short period of time and it worked out real well for us.”

“I think Art is a top notch individual as far as I am concerned and he has great people working for him. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to a friend of mine unless I really felt that way.”

     A.P., Victor

“We go to Santelli’s for stuff all the time. I know some of the people that work there. I had a good feeling about it and my Pole Barn matches my house as close as I could get to it.”
     C.D., Manchester

“I knew that this was going to be a quality job because Andy came right out and went over the specs with me and my brother-in-law who works in building and he gave me a start date and followed right up, so that was great and other people just ignore that and other people didn’t even return my calls. The key really was his relationship. He was there every day when they were working and answered a lot of questions... ”
     C.P., Canandaigua
