About Edmund Allen


Our Roots

Edmund A Allen founded the company in 1897 in downtown Chicago. After WWII, we established a location in Momence, Illinois that became our sole office just a few years later. We have long been considered the Midwest’s premier Western Red Cedar distributor with regards to selection, quality and experience. We have been factory finishing our sidings and trims in a controlled environment since 1962. We were the first “staining” operation of our kind east of the Mississippi, and we are the third-longest running factory finishing operation in the country. In our commitment to provide for the custom needs of high-end construction, we operate an advanced custom milling operation on our premises to create nearly anything your architect can dream up in cedar. We are 100% employee-owned and committed to providing the best products and service in our categories.

Factory Finishing

At Edmund Allen Lumber, we have been finishing cedar and related siding products at our facility since 1962. Numerous studies have been done and the results are unanimous: Factory Finishing is the most uniform, economical, and effective way to protect exterior siding and trim. With real wood siding such as cedar, a US Forest Products joint coatings committee study determined that adhesion on “raw” boards was compromised with as little as two weeks of exposure to the elements.
