Lumber is graded using the American Lumber Standards, which are based on the structural integrity of a board. These grades take into account the size and location of defects, as well as the slope of grain, in order to predict the load-bearing capacity of the board. These factors are used to determine the percentage of clear wood in the board that, in turn, determines the grade.
The most common grades and their clear-wood requirements are as follows:
"Select" = at least 80% clear wood (we call our "Select" - Premium Grade). Our Premium Grade averages 90%.
Hours: Monday through Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time)
