Why Is Ply-Lam Better?

  • Ply-Lam is basically plywood so it is a very stable product; not susceptible to warping, cracking and twisting as is the case with dimensional lumber.
  • Ply-Lam is lighter, easier to work with and more fire resistant than OSB. It also has ‘memory’ i.e. it may swell when wet but will return to its original size when dry.
  • Ply-Lam is a better use of the resource than dimensional lumber. When using dimensional lumber for stringers, up to 40% of the wood may be wasted.
  • Ply-Lam in ‘plank’ form is very economical for use as treads. This saves time lost dealing with heavy 4’ x 8’ sheets of 1” plywood and produces far less waste.

What People Are Saying

The owner, Chad, and his team were fantastic to work with! From beginning to end, I felt comfortable with the staff and knew that they had what it took to build the stair of my dreams. I now have a beautiful curved stair and I have Chad and his entire crew to thank for it! Chad is knowledgeable and really made me feel comfortable when it came to moving through the process of building a stair. His professionalism speaks volumes to how he deals with not only his staff but also with me as a customer. Thank you for all your hard work!
