Lumber makes up the base of many construction projects such as framing, flooring and roofing.  Depending on its use lumber comes in different types of wood and finishes. Willingham and Sons keeps a fully stocked supply of lumber for all types of uses in construction and landscaping.

Framing Lumber

Framing lumber is used for the framework of major construction projects and is classified by size and species type. The species of tree used to make up the lumber affects the density and the hardness of the wood. Common types of wood used as framing lumber includes pine, spruce and fir.

Treated Lumber

Treated lumber has been coated with chemicals while under pressure. This preserves the wood and makes it more suitable for outdoor use. Treated wood is less likely to mildew or rot and helps resist attacks from insects. This type of wood is often used for areas where it is necessary for the lumber to come in contact with moisture such as outdoor projects.
