Fir lumber has tight, close grain lines making it more stable and strong. It’s much less prone to warping or twisting, and so it’s the perfect lumber to choose for framing or exterior application. Fir lumber returns to the same shape, which is exactly what builder’s need. To find out exactly what your Ridout has, please contact your local Ridout Lumber.

Softwoods are divided into two categories: dimensional lumber, with a grade based on strength, and appearance boards, which are typically used for woodworking projects.

  1.  C Select = Almost completely clear of defects. Widely used for interior trim and cabinets.
  2.  D Select = Fine appearance, similar to C Select. May have dime-sized knots.
  3.  1 Common = Best material for high-quality pine with a knotty look. Knots will be tight, meaning they won’t fall out and are generally small.
  4.  2 Common = Tight knots, but larger than found in 1 Common. Often used for paneling and shelving. Very suitable for general woodworking projects.
  5.  3 Common = Knots larger than in 2 Common. Also used for paneling and shelving, but especially well-suited for fences, boxes, and crates.

Spruce lumber is straight-grained with fine to medium texture and has a moderate to low decay resistance. It works fairly well with most tools & glues; and finishes as well. Since it has a lower decay rate & less warping than most other species; spruce is used more often in the new construction field.


  • 1x & 2x Spruce
  • Finger Jointed (FJ) Spruce

*Ridout stocks a #2 std or better, but also has other grades available, call for more details.

Stud Lumber is typically the vertical members of a wall or framing area that are pre-cut to a certain length. Studs typically carry vertical structural loads and hold windows, doors, interior finish, exterior sheathing or siding, insulation and utilities in place to help give shape to a building. Studs typically go from top plate (wall plate) to bottom plate (sill plate); the studs a fastened or strapped according to local building standards.

  • Doug-Fir
  • Spruce
  • YP

*Other structural stud materials are available from our EWP department.

Contact your local store for more information.

Treated Lumber or treated wood provides the natural look of wood with the added benefit of protection. It’s ideal for ground contact or exterior construction and is typically used for retention walls, fence supports, decks, and beams.

There’s also fire retardant, dimensional lumber that is non-combustible and ideal for weather-proofing purposes.
