b'WHY PROPRIETARY GRADING?Years ago, in order to maintain some sort of standard, the National Hardwood Lumber Association (NHLA) created grades for lumber that the industry has traditionally followed.The problem is, there are so many different variations within each grade that many boards produce very low yields or are unusable for many customer applications.THE JOURNEY FROM GOOD. T OG RE ATRE - MANUFACTURED RE - GRADEDINDUSTRY LEADING TALLY ACCURACYGRADE CERTIFIED TALLY GUARANTEED Each board is tallied to the tenth of a board foot andRE - TALLIEDwww.hardwoodind.com stamped on both the face and the end of the board.5.3 PURPLE HEARTREMARKABLE!OUR SOLUTION :We created our proprietary grading system to give customers lumber that more specifically meets their needs.Our NHLA trained graders follow a rigid set of guidelines in selecting boards based on our proprietary grades. If a board is of questionable grade, we will rip or chop the board to improve the value.If we cannot improve the value, we will downgrade the board to a lower grade. BOARDS ARE GRADED FOR APPLICATION INSTEAD OF TO A MINIMUM STANDARD.
