LUMBER GRADING

RESOURCES

 

Synergy Wood is proudly made in America

Even though each type of wood has its own grading system, the purpose of grading lumber is the same; a method to communicate between buyer and seller of what is and isn’t acceptable.

HOW SYNERGY WOOD GRADES LUMBER

The lumber that comes into our facility is graded at each of the lumber mills we buy from. Below is a list of the species and grading rules used by Synergy for our initial inspection of incoming lumber.

 

Governing Grading Standards Used by Synergy

Cypress - National Hardwood Lumber Associations Rules 2007

 

Southern Pine - Southern Pine Inspection Bureau Grading Rules, 2014

 

During our production process, Synergy selects, inspects and re-grades each piece of lumber by hand. Even with this extra grading, wood is a natural product and therefore, each piece is going to be uniquely different.

 

For the pieces that make it through our facility and to the job site that might have some undesirable issue, please see the page “How To Use What is Delivered”. Everything that is delivered to a job site is 99% usable.

 

The following is a basic description of what we typically accept for each type of wood we process.
