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.
Be wary of products called: “U-grade”, “downgrade”, “#3common”, “customer select”, “rustic grade” or “discounted”. What this really means is you are purchasing a cast-off product for a discounted price. In the end you will have to purchase 30% more than needed to cover the same surface area. So much for savings! And, the price for this “discounted” wood is not actually a savings at all, but the market price for inferior, downgraded wood.
Knotty cedar presents a more rustic appearance and is typically supplied green (unseasoned) in the appearance and structural grades. When required, seasoning is achieved by air-drying except for grades of Light Framing and Structural Joists and Planks which are available kiln-dried.
