Innovation & Strength​

Step into the Future of Construction with LVL. Crafted through a meticulous process of layering and bonding wood veneers, LVL stands as a testament to innovation and strength. Its engineered composition grants it remarkable load-bearing capacity, allowing for longer spans and reduced need for intermediate supports, opening up expansive design possibilities while also streamlining construction. LVL’s uniformity and dimensional stability ensure consistent performance, while its sustainable sourcing showcases a commitment to eco-conscious building practices. 



Glulam reimagines the potential of wood through an innovative process that involves bonding layers of lumber. This results in a material that transcends traditional wood capabilities, boasting impressive load-bearing capacities while allowing for creative architectural designs. Glulam is not only a testament to engineering prowess but also a nod to sustainability, as it harnesses renewable resources for enduring structures. 

Rim Board

Strength & Stability

Rim board is an essential component of modern construction, serving as a foundational element that completes the framing of a building’s floor system. Positioned along the perimeter of the floor, rim boards provide crucial support by connecting floor joists and helping distribute the load evenly to the building’s foundation or walls. Engineered for strength and stability, rim boards play a pivotal role in creating a structurally sound and well-balanced foundation for both residential and commercial structures, ensuring the integrity of the entire framework.



AFL, surpassing traditional lumber, embodies wood’s strengths while enhancing them. It boasts a wane-free, pristine appearance along all edges, achieved through a patented process, scanning, and defect removal from dense Black Spruce lumber. Laminated panels, cut to widths of 3 1/2″ to 16″, and finger-jointed ends provide versatility up to 32′ lengths. Ideal for structural use, AFL excels in wall studs, roof rafters, floor joists, and truss chord stock.
