Douglas Fir framing lumber
If you are starting any type of construction project, you have to start with the basics. Douglas fir framing lumber is the heart and soul of any construction project and the lumber yard at Weed & Duryea is stocked with a full range of lengths and widths.
Get No. 2 Douglas fir in sizes from 2×4 to 2×12 and in lengths up to 16 feet with all stud material being kiln-dried for greater durability. We also have a selection of Douglas fir products in 4x and 6x sizes for homeowners and builders who need timbers for exposed-beam construction.
All of the Douglas fir products at Weed & Duryea are sources for forests in the U.S.
This material is a great choice for homeowners who want to have an outside living space that mimics their indoor living space. Pressure-treated lumber is less expensive than other types of lumber and is resistant to rot and insects and can be purchased in many widths and lengths to satisfy just about any project.
With more people building decks to add livable space to their homes, pressure-treated lumber is a good choice when building the structure beneath the deck boards that will support the outdoor kitchen, pergola, or screened-in porch that will become a prominent part of the home.
Here’s a bonus, many manufacturers of pressure-treated wood offer warranties that will cover fungal decay and termite infestations so be sure to ask when you are prepared to buy.
Open concept is a building trend that you hear repeatedly if you watch a do-it-yourself show on TV. Homeowners who are starting renovation projects all want their kitchens and family areas to be large rooms with no walls to obstruct their views.
To get that look, builders have to use engineered materials to create the long spans between rooms and carry the loads from the rooms or ceilings that are built above. To carry the weight, builders use I-joists or LVLs to support the weight and create the open-concept look that so many people want in their homes.
Engineered lumber is stronger than traditional timbers because it is made from wood pieces that are bound together with resin adhesives. The result is a material that is more durable and resistant to rot, pests, and moisture that can be created by exposure to temperature extremes.
If you’re starting a project, go to the lumber yard New Canaan where you can get the materials you need. The Weed & Duryea Home Center is open every day for your convenience and is located at 21 Grove St. in downtown New Canaan. Call (203) 275.0812 for more information.
