Description:

Description Engineered wood is manufactured by binding the strands, particles, fibers, or veneers of wood together with adhesives to create composite materials.

How Many Trees?:

How Many Trees?

PowerPoint Presentation:

3-6 Billion

Benefits:

Stiffer and Straighter than sawn lumber. Span larger lengths and increase on-center spacing. With increase span and spacing, less materials and joist can be used compared to floor joist. Uses 30% more of the tree for building materials. Benefits

Engineered Wood can potentially save you money!:

Engineered Wood can potentially save you money!

Example:

Example Ranch Home measuring 44’ long by 28’wide. Center Girder dropped below the joist. Louisiana-Pacific’s LVL flange I-joist vs. Kiln Dry #2 SPF 2x10 Looked at both 16” and 24” on center spacing. Information is from a 2000 study by Paul Fisette , Department Head of ECO at University of Massachusetts Amherst, from here

Cost:

Cost 2x10’s 16” o.c . Lumber: $1,350 Engineered I beams: $1,600 2x12’s 24” o.c . Lumber: N/A cannot support floor within design constraints Engineered I beams: $1,300* *Fewer joist also translate to less labor needed to install
