The key to smart, cost-effective and successful specifying of hardwood products is understanding the unique physical characteristics of hardwoods and how they naturally occur in American forests.
- Smart specifiers know that certain hardwood species are more abundant than others, and they realize this relates directly to their commercial availability and relative affordability.
- Smart specifiers know why hardwood products come in a variety of dimensions and a full range of grades.
- Smart specifiers also know why some species are harder than others; why species take stains differently; and why certain species can be finished to resemble other species.
- Most importantly, smart and successful specifiers apply their knowledge and understanding of American hardwoods to their projects.
