Solid Sawn Timber
Solid sawn timber is timber cut from an individual log as opposed to the multiple laminations of other engineered wood products. This solid wood product offers a unqiue and commanding style and beauty that is only achievable with it’s use. This classic look and cost effectiveness are the primary reasons to consider solid wood timber for your project versus laminated timber. Frequently, a project will utilize both products to maximize their strengths and effectiveness.

Rodgers is available to help you identify and select the right specifications for your project to achieve beautiful results.
cross laminated timber
Cross laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered laminated wood product made up of several layers of kiln-dried boards stacked in alternating directions. These boards or laminations are pressed together using a waterproof structural glue to form rectangular panels. Multiple options exist for panel thickness and size to meet your project and structural requirements.
Common applications for CLT panels includes floors, walls and roofing. These panels serve as load bearing structural elements. CLT can be found in mass timber construction or hybrid systems, combined with steel and concrete. CLT panels come pre-fabricated, greatly accelerating construction timelines when fully optimized.
