Types

Wood that is about 1” thick, comes in widths from approx. 2” to 12” and come in even lengths.

We have boards in #2 Gorman Pine. Gorman says that all of their products have a furniture finish – “the Gorman edge” that is smooth and splinter resistant. Their products are heat treated and kiln dried to ensure a stable board – not prone to bowing or cracking.

We also have boards in Clear Pine. The grain is nearly undetectable, it has a very smooth creamy appearance, and few small, tight knots.

Generally, wood that is 2” thick or thicker is graded only for strength. Lumber that has fewer and smaller knots is stronger and it's typically more attractive. The standard numbering system says that the lower the number, the more strength and better appearance.

#1 GRADE LUMBER – Few defects are allowed for this grade, so it has smaller and fewer knots. It is recommended for applications where high strength and good appearance is desired.

We have #1 Southern Yellow Pine.

#2 GRADE LUMBER – This lumber contains a few defects, it can have more knots, but they are well spaced and meet size regulations, and may have some bark edges. It is used mainly for non-appearance applications, common for framing.

We have #2 Douglas Fir, #2 Pine.

Select structural This is the highest grade of lumber, used for its strength and durability. You’ll find the least number of defects in this grade of lumber. Knots are permitted in certain sizes, as long as they are sound, firm, tight, and well-spaced.

#1 Pressure-Treated Wood

Pressure-treated lumber is the most common type of wood decking. To enhance its natural durability, pressure-treated lumber is permeated with chemicals that contain insecticides and anti-rot properties, helping to enhance its natural durability. Pressure treated decking is easy to find, easy to cut, and is generally easy to work with. You can also stain the decking to make it more aesthetically pleasing to suit your own tastes.

#2 Cedar Decking

Cedar is known as a higher-quality material compared to pressure-treated lumber. This natural wood gradually weathers into a soft grey color through the years. It’s lightweight and easy to work with, which makes it great for DIY projects. Cedar contains natural tannins, which make it resistant to decay, infestation, and rot.

#3 PVC Decking

PVC plastics are available in many levels of quality, but nearly all of them are resilient. In fact, high-quality PVC decking has almost none of the vulnerabilities of wood. You don’t have to worry about sanding or staining this, which makes vinyl decking almost maintenance-free.

Vinyl provides a wider range of aesthetic options than ordinary lumber. There are color options for brown, gray, white, tan, and also patterns that mimic the grain of wood.

#4 Composite Decking

There are many types of composite decking. “Composite” means different materials combined to make a new finished product. Composite decking stands up well to environmental conditions, and comes in a wide range of several colors and can replicate the appearance of wood. Composite is extremely scratch resistant, but that can vary quite a bit with different brands and price points within each brand. Composite decking is very low-maintenance (typically only needing to wash it a few times per year) and does not require sanding or refinishing.

 

Decking Brands we Carry:

 

 

This grade has a fine appearance but includes boards with larger knots than a finish grade product.

Known for it’s aromatic scent, cedar is a soft wood with an even texture, but it can have a lot of knots. It is naturally rot and decay resistant. It’s wonderful for closets because it’s fragrance actually repels moths and other insects. Cedar also has a drying effect that can help prevent mold and mildew from forming.

Red Oak It has a straight, open, distinctive grain pattern and a somewhat coarse texture. It usually is nice to work with and finishes well, looking great when stained.

Birch A straight-grained wood with fine even texture. Heavy and very strong. Straight-grain lumber works well. however, swirly or irregular grain may be difficult to machine without tear out.

Hard Maple At least 90% white sapwood. Known for its durability and strength, hence it's common use for flooring, butcher blocks, and large furniture. It has excellent turning properties, a fine & even texture, and a natural luster. Somewhat difficult to work due to high surface hardness. Paints and finishes very well, though."

Cherry, Walnut and others are available that we can special order just for you!

WOOD IS A NATURAL, RENEWABLE RESOURCE

Most lumber in the U.S. is sourced from sustainably managed working forests. The trees were planted for the purpose of being made into lumber and grow naturally, absorbing carbon dioxide as they grow. After these trees are harvested the forests are replanted and cycle starts over again. Managed forests and lumber mills also provide important, stable jobs in rural economies.

WOOD PRODUCTS STORE CARBON

Trees breathe in carbon dioxide as they grow and they lock the carbon in, which helps offset the carbon footprint of all of us. The carbon breathed in by a tree is not released when it is cut down, and when a new tree is planted, it starts to store more carbon. It’s a continual process of cleaning our air! Addressing climate change through carbon capture while providing a perpetual supply of timber.
