Kaper’s Building Material, Inc. is a family owned and operated independent lumber yard located in DeMotte, Indiana. We have been conducting business from the same location on the south side of town at the corner of highway 231 and route 10 since 1936. That’s right…Since 1936!


When you visit Kaper’s, you will find a low-pressure family environment where you will find an unmatched level of interest and unmatched quality. Your home is likely one of the biggest financial investments you will make and we are ready to help guide you while making all the important decisions. We will help you think more in depth about everything beginning with the design and the structural nature of your project all the way through the windows, doors, siding, interior doors and trim, cabinets, kitchens, baths, and more. Not only is it a huge financial investment, it can be a highly stressful event. Even the smallest remodeling project can be a huge headache, come to us and let us minimize that stress for you. A well-planned and well-thought project will go much smoother and make remodeling and building a much smoother process for you. 


Many people do not realize that different levels of quality exist in building materials. What level of quality are you looking for in your home? There is bad lumber, there is good lumber, there is great lumber, and there is engineered lumber. There are windows that will fill a hole in your wall, and then there are windows that will make your friends jealous. Come visit and see for yourself the quality of our product. We feel a tour through our facility to see the products that will be used in your home is one of our greatest selling tools. You will understand why other companies may be hesitant to show you around.   


With the addition of Gold Standard Truss and Panel we now have the ability to supply top quality roof trusses, floor trusses, and prebuilt wall panel systems. You can have a fully engineered house package that has been designed as a total system to work together and then watch your home go from a mere foundation to being ready for windows in a matter of days instead of weeks. 


Call or come visit and we will do our best to help make your project a success. Bob Sr. always said, “our success is based on your success.”
