Create a strong foundation with quality lumber and building materials

National Lumber is the area’s leading supplier of top-quality engineered wood products. We stock a wide array of Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) products in pre-cut lengths. Built to satisfy the demanding criteria of today’s building industry, these products offer all the benefits of the large dimension lumber that is no longer readily available due to environmental issues, declining timber quality and unpredictable pricing. Wood-based engineered lumber satisfies current building demands with wood products for framing that are actually stronger than today’s sawn lumber.

We also carry a broad selection of Simpson Strong-Tie™ Connector products, and offer fast turnaround on special order items— often within one business day.  We also have access to all leading brands of wood I-Joists from manufacturers such as Georgia-Pacific®, TrusJoist®, and Roseburg Forest Products.

National Lumber prides itself on stocking the area’s highest quality and most complete selection of framing lumber and plywood products you’ll find anywhere in the market.

We know your project may have unique requirements, so we do our best to offer every type of plywood or sheeting product you may need to get the job done. From standard CDX Plywoods and OSB Panels to premium, hard-to-find products like Weyerhaeuser EdgeGold™ Sub-Flooring, birch and fir plywoods, pressure-treated, fire-resistant, and marine-grade plywoods, National Lumber is your one-stop shop for anything you might need to get the job done!

All of our dimensional and framing lumber is procured from industry-leading lumber mills and buying groups such as Lumbermen’s Merchandising Corp. (LMC).  We stock a wide variety of framing lumber in in all dimensions – including 2×4, and 2×6 profiles in lengths up to 16 feet. In addition, we offer 2×8, 2×10, and 2×12 profiles in lengths up to 20 feet, and we can special order any longer length you need.

and finishes executing her client’s unique vision.
