What Is Parallam Wood?
Parallam can be made from many species of wood. The majority of the wood chosen range from hemlock, pine, Douglas fir and yellow-poplar. This type of lumber has more strength than other types of wood due to knots that are found throughout the wood.
Parallel strand lumber (PSL) describes long strands of engineered lumber that is formed together to create durability and strength. Because it supports heavy loads, it is used for beams, columns, headers and much more.
Benefits of Parallam Wood:
- Strength/durability, reliability and beauty
- Design options with beautiful wide open floor plans
- Can be stained or finished for the classic and sophisticated look you want
- Generally treated to withstand extreme weather and climates
Home builders and general contractors prefer using Parallam beams because they are stiff, strong and straight, which provide an ideal beam. It can also be nailed or drilled and cut with circular saws.
