S-DRY Framing Lumber

If your building project requires framing lumber that is 19% moisture content, we can help. Surfaced dry (S-DRY) is lumber that has an average moisture content of 19% when surfaced at the mill. Sometimes dryer lumber tends to integrate better with the existing lumber found when remodeling. Applications include studs, joists, headers and rafters.

Engineered wood is used for the header in this wood frame construction project

LVL, PSL, LSL, I-Joist

We carry the most common engineered wood products used in framing in a range of sizes and lengths for the professional builder. A stronger and more sustainable green alternative to sawn lumber, engineered wood is made from smaller trees that are not necessarily straight.

Crafted by layering wood veneers, wood strands or wood chips with moisture resistant adhesives and assembled into blocks of material called billets. Each billet is then resawn into specific sizes that are solid, uniform, highly predictable and virtually free from warping, splitting and shrinking.

Engineered wood including I-Joist, laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and parallel strand lumber (PSL)

LVL / PSL / LSL / I-Joist

Engineered wood is available in lengths beyond conventional lumber and our inventory includes LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber), PSL (Parallel Strand Lumber) for beams and headers, and LSL (Laminated Strand Lumber) for a wide range of applications including studs, beams, rimboard, millwork and garage door headers.

I-joists are ideal for long spans and are used in residential floor and roof framing. They are available in a full range of sizes and lengths to accommodate your every need with deliveries almost every day.

Engineered wood products not only yield superior performance, they also make better use of our forest resources.

Custom Glulam

The bridge that crosses over Coyote Creek in San Ramon is the students shortcut to school and needed to be replaced. Always a fan of education, we were quick to respond and more than happy to source the product and oversee the delivery process. The installation crew took a full day to remove the old bridge and install the new glulam beams.

Custom built Alaskan Yellow Cedar glulam beams, 8-3/4" x 40-1/2" x 68' in length with a 26 inch camber (arch).

If you have a project that needs custom sourcing, look no further. Our contractor sales team is here and ready to help with your projects needs, from product sourcing to job site delivery.

An assortment of pressure treated lumber in a range of sizes from 2x4 to 2x12 in browntone

Pressure Treated Lumber

Pressure treated lumber is the builder’s choice when the lumber is exposed to the rigors of mother nature, moisture and/or contact with the soil. Structural grade Douglas Fir is pressure treated with Preserve CA-C, a treatment developed to provide long-term protection from wood boring insect attack and fungal decay. Applications include foundations, decks, fences and landscaping.

The right fasteners for pressure treated wood

Hot-dipped galvanized lag bolt, bearing plate and Simpson Strong-Tie angle connector with ZMAX

When choosing fasteners for pressure treated lumber you need to consider hardware corrosion. Moisture triggers the release of copper ions in ACQ-treated or Preserve CA-C treated wood which in turn gets into the metal hardware and creates a galvanic reaction, causing the metal to corrode.

Hot-dipped galvanized (HDG) should be the minimum level you should use and avoid electroplated all together. Use only the dull gray, crusty stuff — HDG or MG. And if your project requires a more bulletproof path or you are building in coastal areas, then use Stainless Steel (SS).

We carry HDG fasteners and Simpson Strong-Tie connectors with ZMAX® finish to provide corrosion protection with pressure treated lumber. Talk to our hardware experts and we’ll show you what to use.

All of our lumber is sourced from sustainable forestland, graded at the mills and delivered to us through a network of suppliers with whom we have very long standing relationships.
Assortment of Redwood lumber in a range of sizes from 2x4 and 2x6 decking to 2x12 rough-sawn

Redwood Lumber

The structural integrity of Redwood lumber makes it the perfect choice for landscaping and outdoor construction projects. Naturally durable, Redwood is resistant to insects, decay, water and even fire.

Our Redwood comes from sustainably harvested forestlands along Northern California’s coast and milled close to the source. This renewable resource has a biodegradable life cycle and can be recycled.
