Here are the different types of lumber and other products you can expect to find in our lumber yard:

  • Industrial Grade Southern PineSouthern Pine lumber has been used since the Colonial times for many different reasons.  We are able to competitively price this product because it is very available in supply, we have substantial experience working with it, and the marketplace maintains a consistent demand for it.
  • Industrial HardwoodWe have a variety of species that make up our supply of industrial hardwood.  Our customers often use these products for their own storage and also for shipping in trucks, trains, and ocean vessels.  Heavy equipment manufacturers and companies within the steel industry often use these products.
  • Treated Southern PineSouthern Pine is among the easiest types of wood to treat with preservatives.  It can last for many decades when treated properly and installed as intended.  Recent advancements have made this type of lumber more environmentally-safe, while still retaining the benefits of keeping away fungi, termites, and other pests that might infiltrating it.
  • WaferboardAlso known as oriented strand board (OSB), waferboard is a type of particleboard made of rectangular wood flakes of a controlled length and thickness.  It is bonded together with phenolic resin under intense pressure and heat.  It works well for a variety of industrial uses.
  • Southern Pine PlywoodSouthern Pine Plywood is a panel manufactured from thin sheets of veneer.  Inexpensive to purchase, Southern Plywood is also easy to work with, has a high resistance to cracking, splitting, and twisting, and maintains a high degree of strength.
  • Floor Truss ComponentsFloor trusses are squeak-free and reduce framing time and waste, but only if you use the right materials or have professionals handle the job.  Industrial Wood Resource Systems can cut and assemble your floor trusses, or we can just deliver the parts directly to you.
  • Treated Landscape TimbersMany landscapers use our treated lumber to assist with the construction of their retaining walls.  Treated lumber is becoming increasingly ecologically safe, so it not only does the job of providing you with the landscape you want, but it also does not cause severe harm to the environment.
