Making the Grade in Lumber Quality

Selecting the right piece of framing lumber for your project does not have to be as complex as the grading rules. This guide to the grades of lumber, is meant to help you get past the uncertainty by giving you the knowledge of what the grades allow and how to achieve an apple to apple comparison of what you see.

In the Pacific Northwest, our common framing lumber species are:

Every species has different characteristics for strength and appearance, but they are all graded on the same rules from the American Lumber Standards Committee.  The grades, for all that they do, are not much more than a way of telling the user what kind of quality they are buying.

The higher the grade, the better the lumber.

Before going into the Lumber Grading Standards chart to understand grades we need to understand each defect presented;

Checking – A crack in the board that happens along the growth rings and does not go through the entire board.

Grain – Determined by the number of growth rings in the board.  Typically measured in rings per inch and is viewed from the end grain of the board.

Knots – A naturally occurring defect in the board caused by branches as the tree grows.  Small tight knots are perfectly fine but large loose knots that may fall out are of greater concern.

Pitch or Sap – How trees heal wounds from pruning or fight off other diseases that could be otherwise harmful to a healthy tree.

Pitch Pockets – Places in the board where the tree has grown around the sap enclosing the wound.  These pockets coupled with the tight bark layer can be found in the wide face of a board and are not the same as edge wane.

Shake – The separation of woods growth rings that occurs either on the face of the wood or below the surface.

Skips – A manufacturing defect where planners and saws “bounce” along a board or pull the grain, causing an uneven surface to be presented.

Grain Slope – A measurement of the deviation from the natural growth of the board.  Simply put, it is the board cut parallel to the grain or across it.

Splits – Cracks in the wood that go all the way through the board.

Stains or Discolorations – Can be caused by insects, fungal decay, or heartwood/sapwood.  Some stains have no effect on the performance of the wood, while others limit the strength of the wood. This is because they come from the fast-growing center of the tree.

Wane -The uneven edge of the tree that used to contain the bark of the tree before it was milled.

Warp – In a board is the deviation from straight and true and is called by many different names.

  • A bow in the board is the end to end change on the wide face. This looks like the bottom of a boat.

  • A crook in the board is the warping that happens along the narrow edge. This looks like a hockey stick.

  • A cup in the board is when the wide face curves with the flat grain creating a hollow in the board. This looks like a canoe.

  • A twist in the board is a combination of multiple warping defects. This often looks like a boomerang or an airplane propeller.

Clear wood requirement is the amount of good wood left after all the defects have been removed from the clean faces of the wood.

The chart below shows the seven grades of framing lumber and the allowable deviation from a perfect piece of lumber.

Lumber Grade Stamps

The final piece of the lumber puzzle is the ability to look at a grade stamp to understand what it is telling you.   All stamps on lumber tell us the exact same information; (a) the grading agency, (b) the mill designation, (c) the approved grade, (d) the wood species group, (e) the moisture content.

Common Application

In most jurisdictions, the building code requires #2 Structural, commonly referred to as #2 & Better. This is why it is found at most lumber yards and home centers in your area.  Lumber yards will differ on the primary species family they carry.  One yard might sell Douglas Fir for the strength characteristics while another chooses Western Hemlock because it is cheaper while still meeting the same building codes.

In many commercial uses, select structural lumber is required because of the strength of the wood fiber.  Typically, these are applications with very high point loads due to the increased capacity of the structure itself for storage or for people. Most residential construction that is done with Select Structural lumber is done because the builder and the homeowner prefer the quality of the fiber.

The lesser grades of lumber are often used where structural codes do not matter in industrial or temporary applications.  These can be things like pallets and packaging for shipment or concrete footing work where one good face will usually be adequate.

Whatever lumber you choose, knowing the grade will help you determine if it is right for your project.  Grading used in conjunction with the design tables will help make sure that your project lasts for as long as you want it to.

The Next Hundred Years.

Invite and Newsletter post headerReflecting back on a 110 years of history has been a great deal of fun for me.  I looked back at the changes in our community, our business and our industry.  I see the celebration of the good times and I cherish the kind words and the people that made our business what it has become.  As I have read through stacks of notes of gratitude for supporting a particular community project or thoughtful comments about the great service by one of our employees, I was filled with hope for the next hundred years.

I was asked to share with you what I think the future looks like from our perspective and quite frankly, I am really not sure.  What I can predict with confidence is our future is going to be uniquely about you!

The product demands of our customers are constantly changing with the newest trends shown on websites like Pinterest and Houzz (two things that did not exist ten years ago.)  YouTube and Vimeo have given many of us the courage to rebuild our own deck or tile our bathrooms and the digital exchange of funds has allowed for a more expedited buying experience done on the customer’s time.

In many cases, homeowners ourselves, we share your passion for living in and improving the space around us.  We will continue to stay on top of the latest trends and common practices in building and home improvement on our website. We will soon provide you with the ease of online buying and ordering of products and services so that you can spend your time on the jobsite or with your family.  While all this is great, the most important factor that has not changed in the last hundred years, and will not change in the next hundred years, is direct human interaction. The one on one exchange of ideas and solutions between the community and our stores will continue to be nurtured as we walk with you down the store aisles, providing the service and the advice you can trust where an ever expanding sea of information exists.

The local knowledge with neighbors helping neighbors will remain the cornerstone of our business for years to come.  Whatever your source of inspiration for the next hundred years, I am confident that the team of employee owners at Angeles Millwork and Lumber Co. and Hartnagel Building Supply will be right there to help.

Thank you for being a part of our rich history in Port Angeles, we look forward to the next hundred years of serving you and your successive generations.

Did you read the post about Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co’s 110 year history?  Read it HERE.

Be sure and join us in celebration of 110 years in business with a BBQ, vendor displays, games and prizes on Thursday,  August 25th at Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co.!  More information HERE.

Two Stores and a Simple Vision – The Platinum Tape, a blog by Kelly Fox

We have begun rolling out new logos for both our stores in the hopes to visually unify our brand.

[pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]A logo that is recognizable and represents the community is important to us and our customers.[/pullquote]

Each logo although appearing similar will be specific to each, Angeles Millwork & Lumber Co. and Hartnagel Building Supply.  There will be no more confusion of who Lumber Traders is or was. We are still and always have been just your friendly home town lumber yards doing business the way we have for almost 110 years.

New-Logos

The saw blade in our new logo represents our heritage as Angeles Millwork, the board represents our tie to the building materials industry at Hartnagel Building Supply, and Mt Olympus represents the place we all call home, the Olympic Peninsula.  We are very proud of these three things!

signage

The re-branding also gave us the opportunity to clean up the look and feel of the inside of our stores, our website, and message to the community.  When you stop by the stores next time I hope you take notice of the new aisle markers that will make our stores much easier to shop.  When you need information on an upcoming building project or want to know what is happening with us, I think you will enjoy the added content on our website featuring our great team of employee owners in action.

 

[pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]Whether you are loyal to one store or shop at both, we are grateful for your business and thank you for shopping locally.  When you see our logo or shop our stores, I sincerely hope that you feel the same connection to it that we feel to our community and our customers.[/pullquote]
