Engineered lumber, including i-joists, Parallam and laminated veneer lumber, are the products of choice for builders who are looking to improve the strength and stability of the homes they build. When used properly, some of these materials can also provide points needed for National Green Building Certification.
Plywood Supply is proud to be a stocking distributor of the Trus Joist® residential line. We have a long standing relationship with Trus Joist® by Weyerhauser. Their industry-leading, high-performance, consistent, reliable and environmentally-responsible engineered products are a fantastic choice for your construction project.
Trus Joist developed the wooden I-joist in the early 1970's. Engineered to provide strength and consistency, these joists are a key part of the FrameWorks® Floor System. The dimensional stability of TJI joists helps resist warping, twisting, and shrinking that can lead to squeaky floors. TJI joists are light weight and come in lengths up to 60’. Long joists can save on labor and are faster and easier to install than traditional framing. These same features have made TJI joists a popular choice for roof rafters as well.
Our in-house Forte® design technicians can help with your project by designing floor systems, adding value and efficiency to your project.
