I got a load of 16′ – 2 x 6’s in … 150 of them to start building the shop.
I know all lumber warps … and you always order 10% extra.
On 16 ft walls,. warping is really not a problem .. easy to straighten.
The first two have no edge …. that is to say they had bark so there is less than 1/2 the edge usable. I figure these are scrap as if sheathing comes together there , there will be nothing to nail it to (funny on both boards, the edge is missing on both sides).
Now my question … warp … pulled 4 more boards (just in order off the pile) …
Bow … 0, 1/4″, 3/8″ and 5/8″
Sure some of these I will cut for blocking and window sills but I can’t use them all.
Before I call the lumber yard and bitch, I wanted to know what is generally accepted in the trade?
On a 16 ft stud wall, I would “guess” a 1/4″ is fine but 3/8″ ???
And definitely not 5/8″ I would think.
Just wanted to know what I should expect and what I should ask them to exchange (hoping at $25 a crack they will).
