WEBINAR – Lumber Specifications in a Changing Market

April 8, 2015 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm




Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern

Writing lumber specifications, which meet structural and esthetic design requirements can be challenging under the best market conditions. New market realities and changing client priorities have left many designers and suppliers rethinking traditional approaches to wood design specifications. This presentation will cover relevant industry standards and specification issues, which can arise with material substitutions. Product availability at both the local and national level and its impact on design considerations will be discussed in depth.
