Decking

When it comes to decking, Wood Lumber has wide variety of choices and designs.

Bilco
BILCO Basement Doors

Basement doors are ideal for access to basement storage areas and for moving large items into finished basement areas. The wide opening allows storage items such as deck and patio furniture, and large items such as pool tables and furniture, to be easily moved in and out of a basement. These doors are now easily opened with a piston driven opener that allows for just touch closing.

New Designs:

  • Classic Series: Steele sided and Sloped sided

Framing
Framing Lumber

Wood Lumber has always been held in high regard for its framing lumber.  We purchase the highest stock grades available through the most reputable lumber mills.   All of our framing lumber is produced from Western White Spruce which is considered superior to the less expensive Eastern White.  It is straighter and clearer that Eastern White and has far less wane.

The way we receive and handle lumber is also key.  Wood Lumber has experienced employees in the lumberyard who understand the lumber grades and who will red flag any lifts of lumber that do not meet our quality standards.  These are sent back to the supplier in exchange for better material. We also store all of our lumber in a covered building in neat, well-stacked piles which helps keep the lumber from getting damaged.
Using framing lumber from Wood Lumber will save your building project time.  And saving time is saving money.

Shutters
Atlantic Shutters

If you are looking to upgrade the curb appeal for your home, premium shutters from Atlantic Shutter systems could be the answer.  Atlantic shutters are custom made to adapt to any place, era, and type of architecture.  Their shutters are historically accurate and are available in a wide range of sophisticated designs and rich colors.

Available in structural PVC, Fiberglass or Composite Wood, Atlantic shutters have a limited structural warranty against cracking, splitting, rotting, and excessive warping.  Its finish warranty also protects against peeling, flaking and disproportionate fading.
