LP® SolidStart® Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is a vast improvement over solid wood beams. Problems that naturally occur as solid sawn lumber dries – twisting, splitting, checking, crowning and warping – are greatly reduced. And pound for pound, LP SolidStart LVL has more load-carrying capacity than solid sawn lumber. The end result: a building material that is more reliable, high-performing and usable than traditional lumber. Our design/specification software ensures structurally sound design solutions for your home.
