WHAT ARE LVL'S?

Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is a durable framing product made for superior performance. LVL can be used in place of traditional lumber for greater strength and consistency.

At Peak Truss Builders, our LVL Beams are manufactured by LP® Building Products. Our design team uses MiTek® software and LP® SolidStart® Wood-E® design resources to engineer structural solutions.
