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.

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.

Products & Services

West Fraser is committed to producing and delivering quality lumber, ensuring quality standards are consistently met. All our lumber is grad-stamped, showing the grade of lumber, dryness, and the mill number.  With sawmills in Western Canada (SPF, DFR & HFR) and the Southern USA (SYP) we supply quality softwood lumber products across North America.

LVL is a strong and reliable choice for your engineered lumber needs.  Our engineered laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is used as beams, headers and column applications in residential floor and roof systems. Manufactured from northern lodgepole pine which is known for its tight growth rings, small knots and minimal shrinking and swelling which results in a stronger, stiffer, more consistent, and predictable building material.

West Fraser’s oriented strand board (OSB) products offer solutions that increase productivity on your jobsite.

Our long length wall sheathing – TallWall®, Windstorm® and QuakeZone® are available in lengths up to 145-1/8” and when installed vertically, they eliminate the need to install blocking and filler strips. Learn more at advancedsheathingmethod.com

Durastrand® pointSIX® premium T&G sub-floor features a taper on the 4-foot and 8-foot edges to combat edge swell. If the floor is exposed to rain or humidity the tapered can expand and become flush with the surface without ridging. The result-floors go down flat and stay that way.

Our Solarbord® Radiant Barrier roof sheathing reduces the cost of heating and cooling a home. Using head-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.
