After the lumber is milled to spec, it leaves the mill on sticks to sit on the yard for a minimum of 90 days. It then goes into advanced, computer-operated kilns that use moisture, temperature, and pressure sensors to achieve the optimum moisture content.
We have over 500,000 feet of steam kiln drying capacity that is operated by a well-seasoned foreman. He slowly extracts the moisture by using controlled temperature and pressure until the lumber reaches the specified moisture content. Then the lumber is conditioned for stress relief by introducing steam back into the lumber.
Once our hardwood lumber products have been kiln-dried, they receive a second, final NHLA inspection before being professionally packaged for shipping.
The final product can be used for flooring, mill works, cabinets, furniture and many other applications needing quality kiln dried lumber.
We offer several species of wood boards for sale for various applications and needs, which can be found below:
