Kearney – Lumber


We have a wide selection of lumber for woodworking, and construction conveniently located in our drive thru. Including dimensional lumber, treated wood, studs, timbers, cedar wood, pine boards, hardwood and more.

Construction Lumber

Builders stocks SPF lumber (a mixture of spruce, pine and fir). 2×12 boards douglas fir, and 1×2 firring strips are white pine. It is all graded #2 or better in the Canadian grading scale or standard to better in the American grading scale.

Treated Lumber

Our treated lumber is “ACQ”, a replacement for the old “CCA” treatment. It is treated to a retention of .40, (suitable for ground contact). Treated lumber resists rot and decay, and is ideal for decks, fences and other outdoor projects.

Sheet Lumber

  • Sheeting
  • Sanded
  • Particleboard
  • Hardboards
  • Paneling
  • Cement Board
  • Treated

Plywood: Waferboard (OSB)

Made from chips of wood. Strong and economical. Used mostly for roof and exterior wall sheeting.

A note on plywood grading: A finished plywood sheet is designated by the grades of its face and back veneers respectively, with ratings of A (sanded and smooth) through D (checks, knots, and splitting permitted). We stock 2 common types: A-C: With an A face and a C back, this is a common plywood for use where one smooth, solid face required, such as cabinet making, signs and some types of painted paneling applications. C-D-X: A common panel for use on roof and wall sheathing where strength and moisture durability are important, but because the panel will be covered, appearance is not a big factor.

Plywood: Hardwood

We stock “veneer core” oak and birch plywoods.

Product tip: Veneer core is the most common core type, with all inner plies made from softwood or hardwood veneer. Structural strength and stability make veneer core panels particularly suited to cabinet and casework. Other core types are “solid core” with an MDF or particle board core, “Fiber-ply core” a combination of veneer and solid core, and “lumber core,” where veneer core crossbrands are laminated on both sides of glued-up strips of lumber.

Plywood: Subfloor

4′ x 8′ 3/4″ thick sheets, all are tongue and groove. We offer 4 types of subfloor: CDX plywood, OSB plywood, and specialty sheets from LP (HI-performance CDX) and Advantek OSB, both of which are no-sand sheets.

Particle Board

Typically used for shelving and other utility applications.

Hi-density Particle Board

Designed for countertops and other applications where strength is more important. Available in 48″ x 97″ sheets and 25″ x 145″ countertop sheets.

MDO Plywood

Our 4′ x 8′, 3/4″ medium density overlay board has 1 side with a papery surface on an exterior grade plywood. It is often used for sign or mural substrate.


Melamine is a white laminated sheet with a particle board core. We stock a 2-sided, 4′ x 8′ 3/4″ sheet.
