As New Mexico’s supplier of choice, we’ve worked hard so that our Builder’s FirstSource locations in Albuquerque and Santa Fe can offer custom-engineered floor truss and roof truss systems, fabricated wall panels, and a better way of building with our Better Framing System. To do that, we knew we had to be the best source for all of a builder’s framing and construction needs—whether you stick frame at your jobsite or have prefabricated building components delivered. So we partner with the best suppliers of sustainably harvested lumber and engineered wood in the business—industry leaders such as Boise Cascade and Weyerhaeuser.
Our goal is to have everything you need to build or frame your job, because it’s what we use ourselves.
We keep our full-service lumberyards stocked with the stamped and graded SPF, dimensional lumber, and treated lumber that you need for framing homes and completing all of your other building projects. Buy by the board, bundle, or stack, certain that the 2x4s, 2x6s, and 2x10s that you depend on will be true to grade and spec, and delivered to your jobsite when you need them.
Engineered Wood Products
When you need to build larger, stronger, and lighter, you can depend on us to have the engineered wood products designed and matched specifically for your job.
Weyerhaeuser’s family of engineered wood products is designed to work together:
- TJI Joists let you build high-performance floors without the worry of twisting, warping, or shrinkage.
- TimberStrand LSL—laminated strand lumber—offers unparalleled versatility and is always straight, whether you’re building tall walls, using it for rim board, installing sill plates, or hanging beams.
- Parallam PSL—parallel strand lumber—is your answer for beams, headers, and columns that support heavy loads and let you build those wide, open living spaces everyone wants.
- Microllam LVL—laminated veneer lumber—bears the heavy loads so it’s perfect for using around large windows, doorways, and garage doors.
Similarly, Boise Cascade has its own line:
- ALLJOIST I-joists are the widest I-joist product line in the industry. Featuring solid-sawn flanges, they’re designed for premium floor and roof systems.
- BCI joists feature VERSA-LAM LVL flanges, OSB webs, and a wide nailing surface.
- VERSA-LAM LVL beams and headers are ambidirectional, with no top or bottom, yet eliminate twisting, shrinkage, and splitting for stable, quiet construction.
- VERSA-STUD is Boise Cascade’s answer in LVL for higher walls and taller spaces that need to resist wind loads yet maintain a straight, solid, finished feel.
- VERSA-RIM, VERSA-STRAND, and Boise Cascade OSB rim boards offer one-step matches to BCI joists in depths and lengths.
- GLULAM beam products come with or without camber in a wide variety of widths (3⅛ to 14¼ inches) and depths (6 to 48 inches) with even more sizes available upon request. Lengths extend up to 66 feet.
- Fire Membrane Joists are Boise Cascade’s one-step solution to achieving fire-test equivalency to dimensional lumber joists. They’re engineered with no top or bottom orientation and follow the same conventions for web holes as Boise Cascade’s other joists.
You’ll also find panel wood at our Builder’s FirstSource locations in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe—all the plywood, OSB, MDF, and other sheathing products you need for decking roofs, laying floors, and stabilizing wall expanses. Choose from Weyerhaeuser’s Diamond, Edge, or Edge Gold floor panels (engineered to stay flat) or their Sturdi-Step stair treads. Or opt for Boise Cascade’s plywood sheathing and products such as Sturd-I-Floor—all made from Western fir and Southern pine.
