Engineered wood joists, or I-joists are designed to eliminate many of the problems that occur when using conventional wood joists. For example, with engineered wood, it is possible to achieve a squeak-free floor. These items aren't just more durable than joists using conventional wood, they are much stronger while using less lumber. That is why we recommend using engineered wood i-joists when constructing your home's frame for maximum strength and amazing sturdiness, especially for something as basic as your house's frame.
Laminated veneer lumber is an an engineered wood product that uses multiple layers of thin wood assembled with adhesives, similar to plywood but without the crossbands. These engineered wood materials are typically used in the manufacture of headers, beams, rim boards, and edge-forming material. That is why Engineered LVLs are superior to conventional lumber products of the same make. With these products, in conjunction with other engineered wood merchandise, you can have a frame that is stronger, straighter, and more uniform.
Rim boards are a specially designed component engineered to work in concert with I-joists in constructing wooden frames. These engineered rim boards are used to surround i-joist floor joists, mounting between sill and wall plates. To strengthen your floor and keep the frame of your home as tough as the rest of the engineered wood components, then engineered rim boards are the best units to use.
