A home built today looks different from homes built even a decade ago. Today’s designs push the limits of engineering and the capabilities of traditional building materials. iLevel products can help your home have tall, dramatic walls filled with windows and a floor plan with huge open spaces.
A perfect example of these highly engineered materials is TimberStrand LSL. Wall framing solutions made from TimberStrand LSL are straight, free of knots and resist twisting, shrinking and bowing after installation. This helps cut down on callbacks due to sheetrock cracks. TimberStrand LSL framing also helps cabinets and countertops install flush without the hassles of shimming. The flat, stable surface they provide for tile installations reduces the chance of tile and grout cracking.
TimberStrand LSL is also an excellent environmental choice. The technology we use allows us to engineer high-performance lumber from logs that are not large, strong or straight enough to be of structural value. The trees we use are fast growing species such as aspen or yellow poplar.
Encourage your builder to use TimberStrand LSL in your home. Not only will they be impressed with your knowledge; you’ll be getting a better home.
