When you need cost-effective high performance in floor and roof systems, beams and headers, or rim boards for frame construction, Georgia-Pacific engineered lumber products outperform conventional lumber with higher strength and greater stability over longer spans. Our engineered lumber resists shrinking, crowning, twisting and warping, which means quieter floors and fewer callbacks.
Engineered lumber products are the technologically superior alternative to solid sawn materials. They efficiently use more of the tree, calling on the best qualities of natural wood to gain greater strength and more uniform performance.Engineered lumber adds value to construction because it is:
- Stronger. High-grade wood fiber provides virtually defect-free engineered lumber capable of supporting heavy loads over long spans.
- Easier to work with. Every piece is consistently true to size, light weight and easy to cut on-site.
