Understanding Lumber Grades
While grading can vary from mill to mill and is sometimes dependent upon who’s physically grading the lumber, #2 lumber typically consists of a few defects. These visual defects can include a sizable amount of wane and knots that are spaced out, moderately sized, and sometimes unsound. This grade of lumber is typically used for framing, decking, and trim.
We’ve recognized that #2 grade lumber is a commonly-requested grade by our customers. Oftentimes on projects, our customers will purchase #2 lumber with the expectation of being able to pull enough wane-free boards with as few knots as possible in order to complete their project. This strategy often leads to a shortage on-site and the need to purchase more lumber in order to get enough high-quality boards to be able to finish the project. We recognized this problem our customers were having and sourced a solution: Z-grade lumber.
Keeping our customers’ needs in mind, we sourced a product that surpasses the pitfalls our customers typically experience with #2 grades. Our Z-grade lumber is a no-wane, premium solution that surpasses these #2-grade expectations.
A Premium Solution: Z-Grade Lumber
Our Z-grade lumber exceeds expectations for a typical #2 grade lumber. With the goal of helping you meet the specific needs of your next project, we work directly with the mill to source our own unique, premium grade of lumber.
Z-grade lumber is a no-wane, premium solution that will have less knots and tighter knots than standard #2 material. Where #2 grade lumber may fall short on framing, decking, and trim projects, Z-grade lumber rises to the occasion with its minimal knots and wane-free properties.
Are you looking for a premium solution for your next project that’s wane-free with both fewer knots and tighter knots? Reach out to Zeeland Lumber and Supply today for a quote on using Z-grade lumber for your upcoming project.
Applications for Z-Grade Lumber
Due to its wane-free properties with fewer and tighter knots, Z-grade lumber is a great solution for projects that require straight and visually appealing boards. Our Z-grade lumber products are available in framing lumber, treated decking, and interior trim. Using Z-grade lumber on framing and decking projects can help create a more aesthetically pleasing product, and it also means you know that every piece of Z-lumber you purchase is project-ready. With less waste on-site and fewer trips to your lumber supplier to restock, this offers significant efficiency and profitability improvements.
