Our Story

- Who We Are -

Wood is the Heart of a Home

At Ruffin & Payne, we understand wood. Since 1892, we’ve been supplying framing lumber and millwork to customers in the greater Richmond area. Over the years, our product lines have expanded to include pressure-treated lumber, roof trusses, windows, doors, and so much more. For the better part of a century, builders have continually trusted Ruffin & Payne to deliver the utmost in quality building products-and to stand behind what we sell.

Our millwork shop can transform the raw wood into columns, fireplace mantles, mouldings, sidings, stairways, wainscoting, and more. We are a member of the National Architectural Woodwork Institute, and our craftsmen are among the highest caliber in Virginia.
