Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL)


Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is an engineered wood product that uses multiple layers of thin wood assembled with adhesives. It is typically used for headers, beams, rim board, and edge-forming material.

LVL offers several advantages over typical milled lumber:

  • Made in a factory, LVL is produced under controlled specifications
  • It is stronger, straighter, and more uniform.
  • Due to its composite nature, LVL is much less likely to warp, twist,  or shrink.
  • It doesn’t have the imperfections of milled lumber such as knots and bowing.
  • LVL is dimensionally stable and the size is completely customizable.
  • LVL components can be engineered to the customers specifications.

LVL is a versatile product that can be used in a variety of industries. MJB currently services the door, cabinet and RV industries with laminated veneer lumber products. You can order your LVL components to yield 100%, which can help to reduce time and labor costs and also reduce lost product.
