ENGINEERED WOOD PRODUCTS
Engineered Wood Products (EWP) are being used more and more in new residential and commercial construction projects. Slegg is quickly becoming the market leader in the distribution and design of these building floor and roofing systems on Vancouver Island. Our design and engineering department works closely with builders, architects, and engineers to ensure the right product for each application.
With EWP, we create a specific design for your project to reach longer spans, save time, reduce waste and lower your overall costs. We use the best state-of-the-art technology from design to delivery, to implement the most optimal design suited for your project. EWP is also becoming the first choice for flooring systems because of its ability to be more stable and less likely to shrivel or swell as much as dimensional lumber.
Here are a few advantages of using an EWP system:
Predictable Perfomance - straight with less shrinking
Greater Flexibility in Design - longer lengths for open concept designs and stronger members
Lighter and Efficient Use - close to 30% lighter for I-joists over dimensional lumber
Better For The Environment - on average 46% less material used than conventional lumber
Flatter Surfaces - reduced settling, drywall popping and uneven floors
Detailed Layouts Provided - easy installation for framing contractors
Less Maintenance - reduced settling, drywall popping and uneven floors
Warranty and Engineered Designs - peace of mind for builders and homeowners
The extensive variety (thicknesses, sizes, grades, exposure, and durability) makes it the ideal solution for the widest range of projects and applications.
A large number of design options without sacrificing structural strength.
