Specialty Cypress Lumber Facility Opens Near Austin, TX.

AUSTIN, TX (February 2, 2010). Jimmy's Cypress celebrates the opening of their Austin area 15,000 sq.ft. showroom, office and warehouse. The facility is located 13 miles East of I-35 on US 290 E., at 14807 US Hwy. 290 E.

Cypress is an important building material for Texas homes and buildings. It's been used all across the state over the last 100 years and is instantly recognizable as a beautiful native wood that performs very well in Texas' climate.

Recently relocated from New Orleans in 2009, the opening of this facility is a new beginning for the company. The showroom offers homeowners, builders, architects and designers a first hand view of products that will aid in the planning and design of their projects. "Texans now have a broad variety of Cypress wood products to choose from. It's exciting to bring this large selection to Texas, giving homeowners and contractors a high quality wood to use for their projects. Cypress is strong, stable, durable, and definitely beautiful," says co-owner and founder Jimmy Krantz.

Customers can see examples of Cypress wood flooring, shade arbors, beams, sidings, mouldings, beadboards, decking, and dimensional lumber. Samples are available. "It's been accepted by many that you can't get much Cypress here in Texas; that is just not true. We offer our clientele Cypress wood products that they cannot find elsewhere and are happy to find here with us,” says co-owner Emili Segovia Krantz. Cypress is harvested exclusively from Southern US forests and understood to be a sustainable, carbon neutral wood.

Their website offers a large selection of Cypress wood products, offering siding, beams, paneling, millwork, flooring, and dimensional lumber in several different quality grades. While online, customers can view "Why Cypress" information, detailed product specifications, prices, and many customer photos. Online quoting and ordering is offered for customer ease and convenience, an industry first. They can be contacted at (512) 278-9998 or via their website www.JimmysCypress.com.
