Structural lumber is lumber that is larger than 2×4 inches. It is mostly used in framing structures like houses and farms. When it comes to selecting the right type of structural lumber, people prefer hardwood lumber. Harwood structural lumbers are much stronger and durable as compared to softwood structural lumbers. The dense nature of hardwood makes it suitable for structural lumbers.
The hardwood structural lumber is graded based on various factors like strength and appearance. Individual pieces of structural lumber may have different appearances because of their knots, grains and natural character. Structural lumbers are available in different wood species. Some of the structural lumbers like Greenheart Lumber (also known as Chlorocardium rodiei lumber), Kabukalli Lumber, Mora Lumber and, Purpleheart Lumber are known for their strength and durability.
