Softwoods are used in construction, such as framing, fencing, decking, flooring, siding, and other building applications. Douglas Fir, Pressure Treated wood, Western Red Cedar, and Plywood are all brought into our Morgan Hill facility by rail car. Hence we buy in volume and can pass the savings on to our customers. We offer a wide array of softwood lumber products.
Straight grained and modestly dense, Douglas Fir is one of the strongest of the softwoods. Its load-bearing capacity equals many light steels, yet it is considerably lighter in weight. It’s most popular use in home construction is in framing - posts, joists, beams, studs, and rafters. We are the largest distributor of Douglas Fir. We are proud to carry Douglas Fir from the mills of Redwood Empire, Southcoast, Weyerhauser, Trinity River, Mt. Rose, and many other high-quality mills.
Western Red Cedar
Almost as decay resistant as Redwood, Western Red Cedar is often used to make outdoor furniture and garden trim, such as latticework, pickets, and arbors. Interior uses of this light-weight wood include shelving, sashes, built-in furniture, and cabinets. Items exposed to high humidity such as greenhouses demand the extreme decay resistance of Western Red Cedar. Redwood Empire stocks dimension, split palings, grape stakes, split post & rail fencing, and fence boards.
We offer a full selection of 4x8 CDX plywood. Other grades and sizes are available on request.
We stock a full line of incense cedar in sizes 1x4 through 1x12 in fence boards. We also carry 2x4 rails and 4x4 posts.
