Build a Strong Home with Strong Materials

Structural issues are the last thing you want to worry about when building a home. What you want is peace of mind that the materials hiding behind your walls are the highest quality and will hold up for decades. That’s why Tague Lumber chose Weyerhaeuser wood products when building the 2014 Philadelphia Magazine Design Home. Professional builders choose Tague Lumber for their quality building materials, and the best builders know to specify Weyerhaeuser products for the superior performance and structural integrity the materials bring to their projects. If you could look inside the floors and walls of the 2014 Design Home you would see that only the best quality materials were used!

From walls to floors, beams to columns the quality of the products you use can ensure safety and stability for you and your family. Tague Lumber installed wooden I-joists–engineered to provide strength and consistency–to reinforce the floor system of the Design Home. The dimensional stability of Trus Joist TJI joists help them resist the warping, twisting, and shrinking that can lead to annoying, squeaky floors. They are lightweight and come in long lengths, which make them faster and easier to install than traditional framing and saves you both time and money.

This year, Tague Lumber made the great room in the Design Home even greater—with Weyerhaeuser’s Microllam® LVL & Parallam® PSL products. Use Microllam LVL in applications all over the house from window openings to garage door headers. Installation is very quick and the advanced manufacturing process minimizes many of the natural inconsistencies found in wood, such as knots, splits and wane. Microllam headers and beams are able to resist warping, splitting, shrinking and can support heavy loads without a worry.

The Parallam PSL beams, headers, and columns will give you the strength and reliability you’re looking for. Not only do they provide structural integrity, but they can also open up a whole new world of design options for the interior of a home. Tague Lumber used only the best materials when constructing the modern, elegant 2014 Design Home. This year’s house will be structurally sound for decades thanks to the great work, and quality products, used during production. Follow in the footsteps of the professionals and choose these same high-quality products when building, adding, or expanding your own home and ensure you have one less worry over the years.
