Engineered Wood Products


Unlike most companies, Hart has an entire division dedicated to the design, sales, and service of Engineered Wood products. Our commitment to this product line is unparalleled. Our customers include national, regional, local, and custom builders. We combine our experience, consistency, common sense, and our innovative spirit to give our customers what we feel is the most cost and structurally efficient floor system.

 

Experience

Our team consists of two former Trus Joist™ technical representatives, a former Trus Joist™ regional engineer, and a team of designers.  Three of our designers have been recognized by Trus Joist™ as being among the best in the country. Our total combined engineered wood experience is over 120 years. With this much experience available, why would you entrust your reputation to anyone else?

 

Consistency

Our design center located in San Antonio is overseen by our Professional Engineer. Every design has a two-step check process before final review by our P.E. This adds a level of consistency unmatched by our competitors. We understand that every builder has unique expectations and we do our best to exceed them. Having our designers under one roof allows us to give our customers consistent, efficient, and easy to read floor designs.

 

Common Sense

One of our goals is to use a common sense approach while designing every floor system. We always strive to present our customers with the most cost efficient system while considering real-world field conditions. For example, we always take the extra time to locate plumbing obstructions which could interfere with joist placement. We try to adjust the joists up front to miss the obstructions in order to save time and money. We also do our best to recognize potential floor problems or performance issues and discuss with our customers. We understand that an unhappy homeowner can be costly to everyone.

 

Innovation

We never settle for the status quo; we are always looking for innovative ways to satisfy our customers’ needs. In 2008 we invested in what we believe is the future of engineered wood distribution, the state of the art NextPhase™ saw system. NextPhase™ combines the latest in software technologies from Trus Joist™ and a specialized component saw from Hundegger™. With this combination we are able to provide our customers with a floor package second to none. Some of the advantages include: precision end trimmed (PET) products that can be cut to 1/16”, mechanical holes pre-cut in the proper locations, and joist labels that correspond to the framing layout. We can even print intersection marks showing the framer where to place the different products. The project becomes “build by number”, eliminating most if not all of the measuring and cutting.
