Lumber Tricks

Don’t be fooled by lumber companies claiming to have discounted wood for sale.  What this really means is they are selling inferior, lower grade wood at the current market price and claiming it is a “good deal”.  These companies will also try to re-tag wood grades into their own special grade and make it sound new and interesting when in fact it is a common grade re-termed by their company.  More often than not Lumber Out West can beat their pricing by more than a little in savings.   Call us toll free at 866-972-7301 or send us an email for a quote.

Discount Cedar Siding

Remember, when buying cedar siding, or redwood siding for that matter, be careful about discounted wood products.  What this means is that the siding has been sitting around the lumber yard for some time and the lumber company is simply trying to dump old inventory.  Siding is meant to be used in a timely fashion from the time it gets milled to installation.  The longer the siding sits before installation the more cupping, bowing and checking will occur.  Another trick lumber companies use to sell inferior products is they go through the siding and separate out all the high-end material and sell it as a separate, more expensive siding.  They then sell the leftover siding at a “discount” but this really means the siding is being sold at market value.  Lumber Out West only sells the highest quality western red cedar.  Give us a call toll-free @ 866-972-7301 or email us for a quick quote.
