Plywood is one of the most common lumber products available and is particularly useful for construction. Plywood can be used in a variety of applications, from flooring to sheathing walls. It's composed of thin sheets of wood veneer that are layered together and glued in opposite directions; this gives it added strength and stability. Armstrong Lumber carries both softwood and hardwood plywood in a variety of sizes and thicknesses, so you can find the perfect lumber for your construction project.
Benefits of Plywood:
Strong and lightweight
Easy to work with
Can be used for a variety of applications
Can be stained and painted

Boards and Planks
Boards and planks are another common lumber product used for framing walls, building furniture, constructing decks, or other tasks. Boards are cut to standardized widths and depths (from 1/2" thick to 2-3" thick), while planks are thicker lumber that is typically over 2 inches thick. Armstrong Lumber carries a wide selection of boards and planks in different lengths, grades, species, and finishes; this allows you to choose the lumber that best suits your needs. If you don't see what you're looking for in our storeroom, talk with one of our lumber professionals, and we'll work with you to find something that fits your needs.
Treated lumber is pressure-treated with a preservative solution to help protect it against rot and insect damage. Armstrong Lumber carries lumber treated with both CCA and ACQ, so you can find the perfect lumber for your project. We carry treated lumber in a variety of sizes, lengths, and species that have been treated to resist fungus and dampness; this makes it ideal for outdoor construction projects.
Uses for Treated Lumber:
Posts or Beams
Decking is another type of lumber product used for building decks or other outdoor structures such as gazebos or patios. Armstrong Lumber has a wide selection of decking materials for both personal use and for deck-building businesses. Our Corpus Christi lumber yard stocks a variety of materials including pressure-treated lumber, cedar decking, and more. Each material offers its own benefits, so you can find the perfect lumber for your project.
Decking lumber needs to be strong and durable in order to support the weight of the deck. It also needs to be able to withstand harsh weather conditions and resist rot, warping, or splitting. Pressure-treated lumber is a popular option because it's strong and inexpensive, but other lumber types can provide better performance if you're looking for something specific.
Fencing lumber is used to build secure and attractive fences for homes, farms, or other properties. Armstrong Lumber carries a variety of lumber types that are suitable for fencing applications including cedar, pine, cypress, spruce, and more. We also carry a selection of pressure-treated lumber that is ideal for fencing since it is strong and can resist rot, warping, or splitting.
If you're looking for lumber that's both attractive and durable, cedar is an excellent option. Cedar lumber is naturally resistant to rot and insects and it has a beautiful natural grain that makes it a popular choice for fences. Pine lumber is a more affordable option, but it doesn't offer the same level of strength or resistance to insects and rot; however, if you choose to use pressure-treated lumber for your fence, you can get the extra protection that is needed for long-term performance.
Paneling is another type of lumber product that is commonly used indoors to create an attractive look on walls or ceilings. Armstrong Lumber carries both hardwood and softwood paneling in a variety of styles and finishes. Our lumber yard also stocks tongue-and-groove paneling, which can be used to create attractive wainscoting or wall accents.
Paneling is a great way to add a unique look to walls or ceilings in your home. Not only does it provide an aesthetic appeal, but it can also help to reduce sound and insulate the room from outside noise. Additionally, paneling can add visual depth to a space and make a room appear larger than it actually is. If you're considering adding paneling to your home, talk with one of our lumber professionals for guidance and advice.
