Wood—Lumber, Plywood and Millwork

  • Sidney M. Levy


Wood is the only building product that comes from a renewable source. It is strong, durable and biodegradable and requires the lowest amount of energy to convert it from its natural stage to a finished construction product. Wood used in the construction industry fits roughly into one of six categories:
  • Rough carpentry, framing lumber and timbers,

  • Finish carpentry materials,

  • Plywood products,

  • Reconstituted wood products,

  • Laminated structural wood members, and Millwork.
