The heart and soul of any residential build, our yards stock a full range of sizes and lengths in 2x Douglas fir framing lumber. All of our products are #2 or better, with all stud material being kiln dried (KD). All of our Douglas fir is currently sourced from the U.S.
Douglas fir has unusually straight grain and is a favorite choice among builders for timber framing and exposed beam construction because of the wide availability of large timbers. It’s unique among softwood species because it is dimensionally stable in its natural state and seasons well in position.
With the emergence of the concept of bringing indoor living outdoors, decks are becoming a more prominent feature at many homes. As people add features such as outdoor kitchens, pergolas, and screen panels to their decks, it’s important that the proper structure exists beneath the deck boards to support the additional weight.
Pressure treated lumber is less expensive than hardwoods and composite materials, is resistant to rot and insects, and comes in a variety of widths and lengths. Many manufacturers also offer a warranty that covers fungal decay and termite infestation so be sure to ask about it when you’re ready to buy.
Just about every home now uses at least some type of engineered lumber. Whether it’s the use of I-joists to give homes an open concept, LVLs to open up a wall between two rooms, or posts to help carry a heavy load from above, engineered lumber is a critical component of most construction projects.
Engineered lumber is a human-made product that binds real wood pieces together with a strong adhesive such as resin. The result is a manufactured material that is more durable and lasts longer than natural wood and is more resistant to rot, pests, moisture, and exposure to extreme temperatures.
Plywood and Sheets
Plywoods and other sheet goods are used throughout the building process from the initial framing to the final interior trim. Modern technologies allow for products that are less expensive, can be installed more quickly, and perform better over the life of your home.
Plywood is a sandwich of thin layers, or plies, of wood that is glued and pressed together to form a strong and dimensionally safe panel. Plywood can be separated into two main components: plywood for construction and plywood for woodworking projects such as shelves, cabinets, and furniture.
If your project requires floor or roof trusses, our team can design a package to meet your exact requirements and specifications. Drawings and documentation will be provided, and once the trusses have been manufactured they will be delivered, at no charge, directly to your job site.
We work with UFP Industries, which has more than 140 facilities worldwide. UFP manufactures a variety of truss products for single-family, multi-family, light commercial, and manufactured homes.
Modern building codes require metal connectors, or hangers, to fasten wood framing members together. There are thousands of options to choose from, and if you don’t know exactly which connectors are needed for your project, we can assist in selecting the correct part. You can find information on all Simpson Strong-Tie products here.
Simpson has structural connectors for a variety of applications, including wood-to-wood, wood-to-concrete, and wood-to-masonry construction. Simpson products are known for consistent quality, availability, and for resistance against high winds, hurricanes, and seismic events.
