More than 150 years of history alone doesn’t make Weed & Duryea the best hardware shop in New Canaan. One thing that certainly separates Weed & Duryea from other local hardware stores is Weed & Duryea’s commitment to superior customer service.

Helping customers make decisions about what products to buy, or helping them decide what’s the best lumber to use for a home-improvement project, is the level of customer service that makes Weed & Duryea the best hardware shop in New Canaan.

Walk into the Weed & Duryea Home Center any day and you’ll immediately see why New Canaan residents continue to shop at Weed & Duryea and not at other local hardware stores. Customers are met with friendly faces, offers to help, and an immaculately clean store that makes customers want to shop.

Before entering the Home Center, customers walk through a large section of plants, pots, garden supplies, and patio and outdoor living space accessories. There’s outdoor furniture, fire pits, propane-powered outdoor heaters and other items that would make any patio, pergola or pavilion a more sophisticated space.

There are many more reasons why Weed & Duryea is the best hardware shop in New Canaan. Weed & Duryea has a full-service paint center, featuring custom California Paints. In addition to deluxe exterior and interior paints, California Paints also makes Storm System exterior stains that provide great protection against extreme weather for decks and other outdoor surfaces.

Local hardware stores can’t match Weed & Duryea’s selection of charcoal and gas barbecues. Select from Weber, Big Green Egg, and Napoleon grills in all shapes and sizes. If you’re looking for accessories to make your outdoor cooking experience even better, Weed & Duryea has utensils, pizza stones, roast and rib racks, and many other gadgets for preparing your meals, cooking them, and cleaning up afterwards.

Weed & Duryea’s lumber yard has served building professionals and homeowners for decades, and now gets customers loaded and out of the yard with an efficient drive-thru pick-up area. Customers order the materials and supplies they need, then get in their cars, trucks or vans and wait for their lumber, plywood, sheetrock, or other supplies to be loaded in their vehicles.

Weed & Duryea doesn’t just specialize in framing lumber. The Home Center has crown mouldings, baseboards, shoes, shiplap and paneling in numerous styles and sizes. If customers aren’t able to find the material they need, it can be ordered and delivered to the job site.

If you need new or replacement windows or doors, mailboxes, or kitchen or bathroom cabinets, Weed & Duryea’s Home Solutions Division can help homeowners make great choices and then will install the products too.

Customers can take a walk through the expansive design showroom featuring cabinetry, doors, windows, and hardware and start taking notes about what would look great in a remodeled kitchen or bathroom. If you see something you like, sit down with a design specialist and get started on a project.
