Engineered Wood Products
No matter the architectural challenge, we offer engineered floor, wall and truss packages. To achieve the correct structural integrity for your construction project, we can provide the needed assistance in designing floor systems, with I-joists to 40' stocked in all Building Center locations. We also have available pre-built panelized wall systems and roof systems to meet any architectural design.
From new construction to roof replacement, we stock complete lines of products to handle your roofing project. We carry quality 3-in-1 and architectural grade shingles, cedar shakes and machine cut wood shingles. All Building Centers have extensive roofing samples from many different shingle companies. Also available are ice and water shield, metal roofing and a complete line of ventilation products. Aluminum flashing, soffit and fascia and an extensive assortment of sealants and fasteners assure you of a durably sealed roof system.
AttiCat Blown-in Fiberglass
Adding insulation to your attic is a blast with the AttiCat® Insulation Blowing Machine! It conditions the AttiCat® Expanding Blown-In PINK Fiberglas™ Insulation by breaking it up and fluffing it, adding millions of the tiny air pockets that give the material its insulating power. The insulation is conditioned further throughout the length of the hose, and as it bounces its way up to your attic, more and more air pockets are added, increasing its insulating power even more. And since Fiberglas™ insulation will not settle, it will keep its energy-saving R-value over time.
Insulation and Ventilation Products
Preston Feather stocks an entire line of insulation products including fiberglass, rigid foam and blown-in cellulose. We also stock house wrap for proper ventilation along with many sizes and styles of attic vents.
Treated Lumber & Decking
Natural Select wood is made like traditional treated wood, in a pressurized cylinder using a closed system that recycles excess preservative for future use and releases no air pollutants nor wastewater. Unlike plastics, steel, and concrete, Natural Select wood's source is a renewable resource grown on managed timberlands. It requires less energy to produce than plastics and offers greater insulation value.
Select Cut® treated lumber is available in all the Building Centers. Stocked in standard and premium grade, 4x4, 4x6, 6x6 and many decking accessories. 5/4 decking is also stocked in cedar, with other wood species available through special order. Composite decking by TREX is stocked with other brands available by special order.
