Demystifying the Grading System of Construction Materials

As experts in the construction materials industry, we understand the complexities and nuances of material grading systems and we aim to shed light on the practicality and uses of B Grade, or "Off-Grade," construction materials. These materials, while not meeting the highest industry standards, offer a cost-effective and resource-efficient solution for a myriad of projects.

Roofing Materials
In our collection of B Grade roofing materials, we provide a range of options that balance quality and affordability. This includes an array of shingles in different styles and colors, versatile commercial roofing products such as Torch, Peel & Stick, and Base products, along with synthetic and asphalt-saturated organic roofing felt. These materials are perfectly suited for projects where top-tier materials are not a critical requirement.

OSB Boards
Oriented Strand Board (OSB) represents a significant portion of our B Grade offerings. We source and distribute various sizes and grades of OSB, including Econ, Reject and slightly damaged A Grade. These boards find their application in making crates and pallets for shipping, industrial uses such as dunnage, slip sheets, crane mats, and in constructing outbuildings like sheds and barns. They’re also increasingly used in furniture frames. Give us a call: We can even cut OSB you purchase from us to size.

Siding Products
Our range of B Grade siding products is diverse and includes 8″ OC B Grade and various sizes of Lap Siding. From OSB siding to hardboard, decorative hardboard and fiber cement siding, these products are ideal for both commercial and residential exterior siding. They offer a perfect blend of durability, aesthetic appeal and cost-efficiency.
