You've probably been framing with traditional solid sawn lumber beams, headers, columns and studs for as long as you've been building. Now, through advances in technology and design, there is a better choice - RigidLam® LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) beams, headers, columns and studs. They are simply a better alternative than traditional solid sawn lumber pieces. Why not make the job easier by working with a stronger, stiffer, consistent and more predictable building material. Compared with similar sized sections, our RigidLam LVL products can support heavier loads and allow greater spans than conventional lumber.
