Framing Lumber

KD- Kiln Dried

Kiln Dried lumber is placed in a heated chamber or “shed” to reduce its moisture content down to a specified range or average under controlled conditions. Drying the lumber in a controlled environment is very important, as it allows the wood to contract without warping. This type of lumber is ideal for a wide range of woodworking tasks.

PT- Pressure Treated

Pressure treatment is a process that forces chemical preservatives into the wood. The wood is placed inside a closed cylinder, then a vacuum pump and pressure are applied to force the preservatives into the wood. This treatment helps to prevent attacks by termites, other insects, and fungal decay.

Fire Treated

Fire Retardant Treated Wood has proven its effectiveness in slowing the spread of flames and reducing smoke in the unfortunate event of a fire, for both interior and exterior applications. Fire Treated Wood combines the flexibility and environmental advantages of wood with reliable fire protection.

Engineered Lumber

Engineered wood, also known as composite wood, man-made wood, or manufactured board, includes a range of derivative wood products which are manufactured by binding the strands, particles, fibers, or veneers together with adhesives to form composite materials.

These products are engineered to precise design specifications which are tested to meet national or international standards. Engineered wood products are used in a variety of applications, from home construction to commercial buildings to industrial products. The products can be used for joists and beams that replace steel in many building projects. Because engineered wood is man-made, it can be designed to meet application-specific performance requirements.

Engineered wood products are versatile and available in a wide variety of thicknesses, sizes, grades, and exposure durability classifications, making the products ideal for use in unlimited construction, industrial and home project application. Engineered wood products are designed and manufactured to maximize the natural strong and stiff characteristics of wood. The products are very stable, and some types offer greater structural strength than typical wood building materials.
