Tongue And Groove Roof Decking Nationwide
Are you searching for an attractive roof decking option for your timber structure? Galyon Timber and Glulam offers a large selection of tongue and groove roof-decking products. With so many options to choose from we can usually provide products that will match your timber in order to present a uniform appearance.
What Is Tongue and Groove Roof Decking?
Most General Contractors, Architects, and Engineers we work with are accustomed to seeing tongue and groove roof decking as the structure that aesthetically enhances a cathedral ceiling. However, we believe that this type of roof-decking has structural appeal in its own right. With high quality tongue and groove roof-decking our customers receive a product that is both structural and aesthetic at the same time.
As a supplier to General Contractors, we have seen our tongue and groove roof-decking go into barns, churches, and even hospitals. We work with Architects and Engineers to help specify the type of roof-decking they need for structural and aesthetic purposes.
What Are My Roof Decking Options?
We offer tongue and groove roof-decking in many different species, such as Western Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, Spruce Pine Fir, and Ponderosa Pine. All of these options are offered in a range of nominal thicknesses. Other options include:
- Surface or wire brushed
- Random length
- Specified length
- End matched or square end
- Edge “V” on one side
In supplying commercial General Contractors with roof decking, we follow the guidelines laid out by the American Institute of Timber Construction. When determining the length of your decking pieces, the AITC lays out strict guidelines about controlled random layup. Here are the standards for two-inch decking:
- Not less than 40% to be 14 ft. and longer
- Not more than 10% to be less than 10 ft.
- Not more than 1% to be 4 – 5 ft.
- Minimum length is limited to 75% of the span length
