Specific Lumber Mills are used by Rigidply to ensure only the highest quality lumber is used in our trusses. Rigidply’s specifications are the strictest in the industry. Rigidply further evaluates each piece of truss lumber prior to it being used in a truss, based on our own internal specifications for wane, straightness and overall quality. Rigidply lumber is stored under cover to protect the appearance and performance of Rigidply trusses. These storage practices also help to minimize the mold potential in Rigidply’s trusses.
