Benefits of Boise Cascade® Engineered Wood Products
Are you wondering what the benefits of Boise Cascade® engineered wood products are over traditional lumber? Here are just a few reasons Zeeland Lumber & Supply recommends these building materials over traditional lumber:
Engineered wood products are efficiently manufactured to suit various conditions and building situations, including roof, floor, and wall sheathing. Each product features exceptional strength, optional fire protection, and moisture resistance.
Engineered wood products are manufactured in a closely controlled factory setting, making them much more reliable than standard wood products. Engineered wood boards and OSB are made up of wood particles that are bonded together, usually using extreme heat and pressure. This means little moisture is left when the product is finished, ensuring high strength and low shrinkage. This manufacturing process makes engineered wood extremely reliable, regardless of application.
Engineered wood features all the durability benefits of real wood, with the bonus of manufactured, waterproof adhesives. This adds an extra layer of durability, decreasing the risk of cracking, bending, warping, etc. And since engineered wood is manufactured in a factory with high test requirements, there’s very little potential for the material flaws that occur naturally in traditional lumber.
Engineered wood is exceptionally efficient to install. Each of Boise’s engineered wood products is precisely cut to match each of the depths of their other products, which lessens the work builders need to do in the field and makes for flat surfaces that are easily installed perfectly. Plus, since engineered wood products are remarkably lighter than traditional lumber, installation requires fewer hands.
Boise Cascade® is dedicated to managing all its operations’ environmental footprint. They rely on forests for timber to make their wood products and are committed to managing forests so that there will be an abundance of healthy, diverse forests in the future. They employ highly-trained loggers who comply with state and provincial laws to protect conservation values, protect water quality, and conserve wildlife habitats.
