Laminated veneer lumber: a United States market overview

Laminated veneer lumber: a United States market overview

Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is an all-veneer engineered wood product that has appeared in the marketplace as a replacement for increasingly scarce high quality solid-sawn lumber in structural applications. As one possible response to increasing environmental pressures, LVL is considered to be superior to recycled steel and plastic, concrete, stone, and brick in terms of energy requirements to produce.
