Engineered Wood

We carry a full line of Boise Cascade AJS and BCI I-joists, as well as Versalam Beams, Columns, and Studs. 

Boise Cascade

Warren Trask has been distributing the Boise Cascade Engineered Wood product line since 1996. Boise Cascade’s Engineered Wood Products make home building simpler, faster and more profitable for home builders. Boise Cascade EWP has consistently sized products that are stronger than dimension lumber, so less material may be needed.

Norbord Rimboard

For affordable flooring systems that lay flat, experienced builders trust Norbord’s Rimboard. Together the I-joists and Rimboard carry the load. For a durable floor that installs quickly, you need the dimensional consistency, strength and structural reliability of Norbord’s APA performance-rated Rimboard.


The OUTSIDER™ beams and columns are made of Southern Yellow Pine and then pressure treated to resist rot and decay. Manufactured to match standard widths and depths. The OUTSIDER™ is treated with Hoover Treated Wood Products’ Cop-Guard (Copper- Nap). Beams are manufactured to a performance level of 1.8E-24F with a balanced layup, straight with no designated top or bottom. They may also be used in both “wet-use” and “dry-use” applications.
