We select SPF (spruce-pine-fir) lumber for features such as girts, purlins, and fascia. For load-bearing components, we use southern yellow pine and high-strength LVL beams. Pressure-treated lumber will be used any time wood is exposed to the elements. 2×8 treated skirt boards (.60 CCA) 2×4 purlins, girts and fascia Engineered LVLs Fully protected with premium-grade… Continue reading Lumber
Trusses are engineered to meet your building specifications and are available in a variety of roof pitches. Our post-frame truss systems let you create a wide-open space with unlimited potential. Hydraulically pressed joints with vertically embedded plates Decades of truss design experience Industry-leading MiTek connector plates 2400-Fb machine stress rated lumber
Perma-Column® precast concrete columns raise the post above the surface of the ground. A heavy-duty steel anchor bracket is used to connect the wood post to the concrete. These brackets can also be used to attach a wood post to a traditional poured concrete foundation. 3 times stronger than regular concrete Internal steel reinforced ½”… Continue reading Perma Column
The Green PostTM System uses a heat-shrinking process to apply a heavy-duty wrap to the bottom of each post, preventing direct contact with the soil. Double barrier system Polyethylene wrap – a proven damp-proof membrane used for 50+ years Bitumen – a protective wood coating used for 1200+ years Uplift restraint notch
Post Protectors are a barrier system that prevents microorganisms in the soil from coming into contact with the wood and causing decay. The protector simply slides over the end of each post before it is buried. Easy slide-on installation 449-year geo-application life Horizontal ribs for uplift protection Vertical venting to allow post to breathe
Burying posts directly in the ground creates a simple and effective foundation for your building. Modern treated wood products are rated to resist decay.
Kiln-dried laminated columns are manufactured by gluing together multiple treated boards, making them stronger and straighter. While CCA treatment is unable to penetrate to the center of standard posts, laminated columns achieve 100% CCA protection. These posts also reduce cracking, splitting, and twisting. #1 grade lumber Treated lumber to above grade
Treated solid posts are made from a continuous piece of lumber. Because they are minimally processed, they are the most economical option. As they dry and age, solid posts may be more susceptible to the natural movements of wood.
