Our lumber is graded in compliance with the NLGA (National Lumber Grades Authority) and the NGR (National Grading Rules) which are accredited by the ALS (American Lumber Standard) and CLS (Canadian Lumber Standard). Each piece of lumber is grade-stamped showing the grade of lumber, the dryness, the mills' designated number and the accredited agency, which in turn performs routine grading checks to ensure the product meets or exceeds all standards.
