Quality Assurance

Nelson Lumber is a member of the Western Wood Truss Association. This means that:

  • we are following a quality assurance program set out for the top truss manufacturers in the province
  • we follow their established code of ethics, as well as polices and procedures for truss fabricators in the province
  • we use above code lumber quality requirements – all lumber is selected for quality of appearance, grade and suitabllity for the application
  • all lumber is reviewed and hand picked, and the balance is culled

Our quality assurance program is defined by the association's Ready to Move division. This is CSA based program, ensuring all manufactured components are fabricated to meet or exceed customer specifications.

Design and Manufacturing

We work quality control into many aspects of our building process:

  • We use only top grade, Canadian, kiln dried lumber selected directly from lumber mills. Factory workers keep an eye out for imperfections and reject any lumber that doesn't adhere to Nelson's strict standards. Experienced purchasers research windows, doors, and other materials, ensuring that you get the best value and most innovative products from reputable suppliers who stand behind their products.
  • All designs are created by a trained on-site design team, using state-of-the-art design software. This ensures structurally sound designs.
  • At the factory, all cutting is computer controlled, maintaining consistent lengths and angles. See our Manufacturing page for information on how our controlled factory setting means a better house for you.
  • Truss assembly is performed on hardware and jigs that are computer controlled and maintained. All setups are computer defined, allowing for consistent sizes and configurations, which are designed and regulated by sophsticated design software.
