We grade after drying and surfacing to better account for defects. Our custom grading process is designed to help customers increase their profit margins. We offer lumber grades that are application specific to help customers minimize waste in their production process.

We guarantee responsible sourcing to better distinguish your offerings, which contributes significantly to building your customer base and helps you achieve high levels of productivity. Whether it be quality advice or quality materials, we are always here to help.
