Quality framing materials are one of the most important aspects of constructing a sound and safe home. The quality of lumber products vary greatly and it is important the right materials are used.
Structural framing materials for new homes originate from the softwood species of trees - usually spruce, pine and fir. Construction grade materials should be good, sound lumber with tight knots and limited blemishes, free of warp, splits, checks or decay. S-Dry lumber is recommended for most applications because it limits moisture content to 19% or less.
At Mountain View Homes only the best materials are used in construction. Materials are hand picked for the best quality. Choosing a quality builder is the first step to choosing quality materials when building a new home.
