Building bigger, taller or stronger requires building with something better. Engineered wood products (EWPs) are designed to do exactly that—perform better, be stronger, and be more efficient than regular wood, overcoming many of regular wood’s unavoidable shortcomings. The top manufacturers of engineered wood building components excel in their craft and you’ll find all of their best creations at the Builders FirstSource location near you. Our lumberyards in New York carry the reliable names you can trust—names such as LP, Weyerhauser, and Boise Cascade—all neatly stacked and stamped to certify the quality levels of performance that you expect.
Do you want to build with I-joists that will span long distances but that won’t bend, bow, or crack? Do you appreciate LVL beams, rafters, headers, and even studs that won’t twist or shrink yet that deliver straight and true, lasting surfaces? There is PSL, with its ability to handle long spans, bear the heaviest of loads, and withstand the elements. And LSL is able to handle large holes as well as bolts and screws, and is versatile enough for everything from sill plates to stair stringers to rim board,. Builders FirstSource has all of these as well as the OSB, plywood sheathing, and other sheet goods you need for roofs, floors, and everything in between.
Engineered wood can go beyond regular lumber and framing wood because it’s made of wood fibers, strands, particles, or even chunks that are bonded together with proprietary glues, resins, waxes, or other polymers and laminates. The results are engineered wood building and framing components that have greater strength, stability, and durability than their regular wood counterparts. In many cases, their formulation may also make them resistant to moisture, mold, rot, insects, or even fire. With Builders FirstSource, they can also be custom-manufactured, custom-ventilated for trade systems, and delivered to your work site on time and ready to go.
