Framing

Douglas Fir

It is dimensionally stable and universally recognized for its superior strength-to-weight ratio. Its high specific gravity provides excellent nail and plate-holding ability. The lumber also shows superior performance against strong forces resulting from natural phenomena such as winds, storms and earthquakes. It’s truly the ideal structural and general  wood for framing lumber.

Georgia Pacific

Georgia-Pacific offers a wide variety of lumber products for residential construction and industrial uses. Georgia-Pacific softwoods include Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) dimension lumber and Western softwoods. Economical pressure treated lumber is the material of choice for decks, porches, outdoor structures and other projects exposed to the elements.

Weyerhaeuser

Microllam LVL beams work well in applications all over the house. They can easily be built-up on site to cut down on the heavy lifting associated with beams. No matter where they’re used, they install quickly with little or no waste. They’re made from our proven Microllam laminated veneer lumber. This means they’re very stable and they resist warping, splitting and shrinking.

MicroPro®

MicroPro® technology is a revolutionary way to pressure treat wood for decks, fences, landscaping and general construction uses. MicroPro pressure treated wood is treated with micronized copper preservatives, which help protect against termite damage and fungal decay. MicroPro offers many benefits including significantly improved corrosion performance.

Steel Studs

Steel studs are perfectly straight. They don’t shrink or split. They’re light and easy to store, plus they resist fire, insects and rot.  The overall cost between steel framing and wood framing is about the same. Note that for heavy cabinets such as overhead kitchen cabinets, they may not be strong enough to support the weight, even with drywall on them.

Slate Shims

A shim is a thin and often tapered or wedged piece of material, used to fill small gaps or spaces between objects.These are heavy duty plastic shims used for leveling the slate quickly and easily. Each shim is flat on the bottom and ribbed on both sides to lock the shim in place. Each one measures about 3″x1-1/4″x5/16″.

Steel-I-Beams

A steel I-beam is a type of joist or girder made from structural steel. I-beams are used as major support trusses in building, to ensure that a structure will be physically sound. The shape of a steel I-beam strongly resembles a capital “I” in cross section. The steel I-beam has a strong central core capped with flanges on either side.

Trusses

Trusses are a building material used in structural framing systems. It is made up of a series of wooden triangles and framing members, which are connected by metal plates. This triangular shape gives the truss  strength and stability over traditional framing. Trusses are often referred to as open web systems due to the web-like appearance by the pattern of the triangles.
