Secrets of Smart Specifying

What is the key to smart, cost-effective and successful specifying of hardwood products? It's understanding both the unique physical characteristics of hardwoods, and how hardwood species naturally occur in North American forests.

Smart specifiers understand that some hardwood species are more abundant than others in the forest. They realize this relates directly to their commercial availability and relative affordability.
Smart specifiers know:

  • Why some species are harder than others
  • Why species take stains differently
  • Why some species can be finished to resemble other species

They know why hardwood products come in a variety of dimensions and a full range of grades. Most important, smart and successful specifiers apply their knowledge and understanding of hardwoods to their projects.
