What does is it mean to be NHLA “Grade certified?” The NHLA Facility Grade Certification Program is a quality assurance program for NHLA members only, to assure customers that our lumber is “On Grade.” Currently we are the only company on the West Coast that is Grade Certified.

Re-Manufactured, Re-Graded, Re-Tallied, Remarkable!

Our goal is to improve your yield, reduce your labor, reduce your inventory, and minimize risk associated with your job!

 

Years ago, the National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA) created grades for lumber that the industry has traditionally followed. The problem is, there are so many variations within each grade that many boards produce very low yields, or are unusable for many customer applications.

 

Our Solution: Proprietary Grading. We created a proprietary grading system to give customers availability to lumber that can more specifically meet their needs. Our own NHLA trained graders follow a very rigid set of guidelines in selecting boards based on our proprietary grades. If a board is of questionable grade, we will rip or chop the board to improve the value. If we cannot improve the value, we will downgrade the board to the next lower grade. Boards are graded for application with more refined grade specifications.

 

Available Proprietary Grading Guides:

Alder

Cherry

Hard Maple

Walnut

White Oak

Rainy River Wide Plank

Industry Leading Tally Accuracy: Each board is tallied to the tenth of a board foot and stamped on both the face and the end of the board.
