Treated Wood Brown - 2 in x 6 in x 16 ft is rated

Jack of All Trades
Bought about 130 pieces to redo top of deck. In over 40 years of being in the lumber business buying and selling it I have never seen such poor quality wood being passed off as decking. There was not one piece out of 130 plus pieces including a wrapped unopened lift that did not have horrible flaws such as knots fallen out, planer skips, split boards, miss shaped edges, edges of knots sticking above the board, etc. etc. And the other side is worse. It seems that these were all rejected boards from something else. West Fraser and more specifically Sunpine out of Sundre where these are produced ( if you call it that ) should stick to making fence posts. At best, only on a few was I able to get an acceptable 12' piece out of a 16' length after cutting around all the flaws. I guess I should have looked before I bought but I paid for the package and had it delivered and by then it was too late. I will definitely check out the other brand first next time.
