Main Profile

West Fraser is a diversified wood products company with more than 60 facilities in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe. From responsibly sourced and sustainably managed forest resources, we produce lumber, engineered wood (OSB, LVL, MDF, plywood, particleboard), and other products including pulp, newsprint, wood chips, and renewable energy. Our products are used in home construction, repair and remodeling, industrial applications, papers, tissue and box materials.

The Advanced Sheathing Method
Learn how to build faster, increase productivity, save money and improve home energy efficiency with The Advanced Sheathing Method. Our Engineered Wood Division manufactures three brands of long length wall sheathing – TallWall, Windstorm and QuakeZone that range in lengths from 97-1/8 to 145-1/8.  When our longer length wall sheathing is oriented vertically, it beats blocking and the requirements of installing filler strips every time!  Learn more, visit advancedsheathingmethod.com.

Durastrand pointSIX Sub-Floor
Durastrand pointSIX is our premium T&G sub-floor that features our patented taper on the 4-foot and 8-foot edges to combat edge swell. If the floor is exposed to rain or humidity, the tapered edges can expand and become flush with the surface without ridging. The result—floors go down flat and stay that way. Add in our 1-year no-sand guarantee and 50 year limited warranty and nothing can hold you back.

Solarbord Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing
Solarbord Radiant Barrier roof sheathing reduces the cost of heating and cooling a home. Using heat-reflecting foil laminated onto our OSB, Solarbord stops up to 97% of the sun’s radiant energy before it can penetrate the attic space. When you stick Solarbord where the sun shines, your attic can be up to 30 degrees cooler. A cooler attic means a cooler home.

TallWall Wall Sheathing
TallWall wall sheathing is available in 9′ and 10′ lengths. These longer length panels provide builders and framers with additional advantages when compared to traditional 4×8-wall sheathing installed horizontally. When installed vertically, TallWall eliminates gaps which reduces air leakage by up to 60%. TallWall improves the performance of your wall insulation by reducing thermal bridging. Our longer length panels reduce installation time with less cutting and handling.

Windstorm Wall Sheathing
Windstorm wall sheathing is available in various lengths ranging from 97-1/8″ to 145-1/8″ long. Windstorm eliminates blocking at horizontal joints and can reduce or eliminate metal hardware. This can easily translate into big savings by reducing construction material, labor and waste. In addition, installing Windstorm vertically improves air leakage by up to 60%. Windstorm improves the performance of your wall insulation by reducing thermal bridging. Our longer length panels reduce installation time with less cutting and handling.

QuakeZone Wall Sheathing
In this labor market, builders and framers need wall sheathing that allows them to build faster while meeting code. Our QuakeZone wall sheathing accelerates construction because framers simply nail it in with minimal cutting, handling and waste. It is available in lengths that can accommodate 11-7/8” and 14” floor framing and when installed vertically, QuakeZone removes the need for blocking and filler strips. This reduces cost, waste and build time while improving the performance of your wall insulation by reducing thermal bridging.
