From first up to the third generation behind it, Budget Builders, Inc. became what it is now: A competitive firm that makes every home beautiful.

It was formerly called New Central Lumber when the late Pedrito Lumakang and his wife Esperanza put it up in 1959 along C. Padilla St., Cebu City. It is offering cost-effective wood products and items for house interiors.

After Pedrito passed away in 1979, his eldest son Henry assumed the business responsibility as general manager. Ten years later, the business transferred to a more spacious lumberyard in 235 N. Bacalso Avenue. There, it was renamed as NCL Development Corporation.

When Henry deceased in 1993, the rest of the siblings took the management over and decided to conceive the name of the corporation as Budget Builders, Inc.

The firm stresses its thrust of serving as a one-stop wood shop offering quality products at the best prices suited to one’s budget. Pricing that suits every buyer’s budget is what the company is all about.

For over 40 years, its clients remain loyal in availing of its offer to make all homes beautiful.

A generous plan by this company is to provide lumber to Couples for Christ Gawad Kalinga “Build Homes to Our Less Fortunate Brothers” project. Other than this, it hopes to materialize a tree-planting activity to minimize floods.

At present, Budget Builders is one of the three major players in the lumber industry. It is trusted when it comes to manufacturing doors, mouldings and kitchen cabinets through its very own kiln drying, woodworking and wood treatment facility.
