Pound for pound, our I Joists have a greater load bearing capacity than traditional lumber and can span farther. With greater lengths available, ceilings and floors can be designed with fewer pieces, saving time on installation. Another advantage over lumber is lower moisture content, making our I Joists less likely to split, shrink, twist, warp or bow.
