But sandwiched in between these two public areas is a cavernous-custom woodworking shop that has been in constant operation since the 1950’s. The shop produces pretty much whatever a contractor or architect can dream a design for; custom corbels, mouldings, architectural millwork, porch screens and wood louvers for attic ventings. It also produces hundreds of door packages for builders each year using custom tooling setups run by skilled Matthews & Fields craftsman. (Read more)

Doug Fields, Purchasing Manager and owner-partner at Matthews & Fields, gives some of the company’s strong points – and how they benefit customers…
Welcome to Matthews & Fields Lumber – glad you found our webpage. My name is Doug Fields. I’m one of the fourth-generation owners here at Matthews & Fields. We have two locations one in Rochester and one in Henrietta. The Henrietta location was established in 1960. We came out here to expand our truss plant to facilitate ease of delivery from this location to our truss customers.
There is a real good reason why you should shop at an independent lumberyard such as Mathews & Fields in lieu of maybe, say, a big box. Most of the independent lumber dealers belong to a large buying group so it gives us collective purchasing power. So our inventory is just at the same price point as one of the home centers might be. So you’ll need to take a look through our webpage and look at the different products. We have lumber, millwork, decking, windows, the list goes on and on.
But what’s most important is that we are a local company and the employees that we have here are very knowledgeable. They are more than willing and experienced to help you from the beginning of the project and take you through to the end. So you shouldn’t be afraid of not knowing what questions to ask – we can sit down with you and review your project and give you our best help to make it as seamless as possible.
Window Specialist Bill MacGovern talks about the good relationships with customers that develop when business is done right.
I think one big feature of our company is that we deal with a lot of our customers and contractors and we treat them as friends. We try and establish a relationship where it’s not just about selling the product but also establishing a relationship, of friendship with the customer. If they get in a bind or we get in a bind, we work together with them and the homeowner. We go out and help them sort things out and try to make it a comfortable, pleasant experience for everybody.
