Lumber Market Overview & Trading Strategy Well...Of Course There Is Concern

This has been a month of pessimistic conversation. Congress, Senate and the White House cannot agree on a budget and domestic spending cuts, but they can agree to keep funding other countries provided they behave like we demand. Home buyers are drifting towards existing homes in lieu of waiting for a more expensive mortgage with potentially higher rates. Home builders are concerned about slower traffic. Lumber dealers, component plants, wood preservers, wholesale distributors are wondering if the lumber market has prematurely turned higher. Lumber producers are concerned that growing pessimistic conversations will have a trickle down effect on order flow. The U.S. economy is failing to gain momentum and provide adequately paying jobs for the masses of middle class Americans. Healthcare providers are being forced to make difficult "no care" decisions under Obama care. Cautious optimism lumber industry wide is shifting to guarded pessimism. Are folks beginning to worry again? Well, of course they are. Promises don't pay the bills, kid's college, or retirement accounts. So what does all that have to do with our lumber market? Everything. Anticipation makes or breaks our businesses. We anticipated the bottom of the housing market in 2012. We anticipated a 2013 housing rebound. Now we are anticipating 2014. Asia is cooling and North American guarded pessimism is growing. When will that impact our lumber market? The FDP and 10-year historical trends suggest October could be troublesome for lumber values.

Adverti$er Standard Design Assumptions in Metal Plate Connected Wood Truss Construction YOU SAW IT IN THE

October 1st, 2013 #06171 PAGE #16

”Are we getting what we’re assuming from a manufacturing quality perspective?” There has been much discussion of late about the revision to the design values for visually graded Southern Pine lumber. I am glad that the industry reacted as quickly as it did to correct the values we use; after all, lumber is a pretty big part of our truss products, not only in terms of the overall cost of the truss, but also as it relates to the assumptions made in the truss design process. Another big part of truss design assumptions that deserves equal attention relates to manufacturing quality. The lumber industry does their part, through on-going monitoring and evaluation, to ensure that the lumber in our trusses will perform as expected; are you doing your part to ensure that the quality of your trusses meets design expectations? ANSI/TPI 1 National Design Standard for Metal Plate Connected Wood Truss Construction is the basis of proprietary truss design software in the U.S. and has been paramount to the success of the truss industry since the first truss design criteria were published in 1959 by the founding fathers of the Truss Plate Institute. ANSI/TPI 1 is many things to many people. First and foremost, to the sealing Truss Design Engineer, it is the industry Design Standard that assures structural adequacy of both lumber and plates when designing trusses in accordance with its minimum Stan Sias - National Manager criteria. To the Component Manufacturer, it provides the industry’s assumptions with regards to the Design Responsibilities of Plated Truss Industry at Simpson Strong-Tie the different parties involved in the design of metal plate connected wood trusses, and can be used to establish responsibilities in lieu of anything to the contrary specifically stated in the project plans and specifications. For the industry as a whole, it serves as the quality standard for the manufacturing processes of metal plate connected wood Trusses and provides a means of determining and assuring that the finished product - the manufactured truss - is consistent with what was assumed in the design. As can be seen in the table of contents (see sidebar at left), ANSI/TPI 1 covers all aspects of metal plate connected wood truss construction, from the Plate Manufacturing (Chapter Four) and Plate Testing (Chapter Five), to the design procedures and considerations for both the wood members and plates (Chapters 6 through 8), to the quality criteria for the manufacturing of the trusses (Chapter Three). Chapter Three is where we want to concentrate our attention today – see how well you know your industry’s quality standard. Chapter Three mandates the quality standard for the manufacturing processes of the metal-plate-connected wood trusses. It states that the quality standard shall be used in conjunction with a manufacturing quality assurance procedure and a truss design drawing. It further mandates that these provisions be included in the component manufacturer’s (CMs) In-Plant Quality Assurance Program. It is plain to see that a specified level of assured quality in the manufacturing process is assumed in the designing and sealing of any given truss design drawing. How is the sealing engineer (the Truss Designer as defined in Chapter Two) assured that the manufacturer is holding up their end of the bargain when it comes to his/her design assumptions? Section 3.2 defines the requirements for the CMs In-Plant Quality Assurance Program. Sub-section 3.2.1 describes the minimum requirements for the In-Plant Quality Control Manual that shall be maintained for each manufacturing facility. It includes the requirements for daily (on-going) quality control and any audits that must be performed. It also must contain a description of the manufacturing process; an organizational chart with assigned duties and responsibilities; quality control procedures including sampling criteria; and a document retention policy. Section 3.2 goes on to dictate Inspection frequency; representative sampling; and the Truss Inspection Procedure.

TPI 1 - Table of Contents: Chapter One - General

Sections 3.4 deals with the lumber being specified for the trusses being produced and goes into depth with regards to lumber substitutions; lumber identification; special requirements for preservative and/or fire retardant treated lumber; and the use of structural finger-jointed material. Section 3.5 addresses truss assembly; equipment; cut wood members; and In-Plant Manufacturing Tolerances for Finished Truss Units.

Chapter Two – Standard Responsibilities in the Design and Application of Metal-PlateConnected Wood Trusses

Section 3.6 mandates proper protection for truss connector plates during storage so that they are in proper (undamaged) condition when used to manufacture the trusses. It also addresses truss plate specifications; substitutions; installation technique; and plate positioning.

Chapter Three – Quality Criteria for the Manufacture of Metal-PlateConnected Wood Trusses

Section 3.7 gets into the nitty-gritty (a specialized engineering term) of Truss joint inspections. Sub-section 3.7.1 states in part, “The selection of joints for inspection shall be as defined in the Truss Manufacturer’s In-Plant Quality Assurance Program.” (There’s another reference to that darned Quality Manual!) Section 3.7 goes into great depth to define plate positioning procedures, tolerances, rotation, etc. It also addresses lumber characteristics in the plate contact area that would affect plate performance, truss plate tooth flattening and plate embedment gap tolerances.

Chapter Four – Metal Connector Plate Manufacturing Chapter Five – Performance Evaluation of Metal Connector Plated Connections Chapter Six – Materials and General Design Considerations Chapter Seven – Member Design Procedures Chapter Eight – Metal Connector Plate Joint Design Commentary & Appendices

PHONE: 800-289-5627

Sections 3.8, 3.9 & 3.10 address plate repressing; plate removal and repairs (including lumber condition) and girder truss ply-toply connections. It is easy to see that with a full nine pages in the Standard itself, and another eighteen pages in the Commentary (including example truss design and manufacturing flow charts, organizational charts and plant layout), the drafters of ANSI/TPI 1 were very dedicated to helping the CMs put the tools in place to assure manufacturing quality. Even so, they chose to add Section 3.1.2 that reads: Metal-plate-connected wood Trusses shall meet the minimum manufacturing quality requirements specified in Chapter 3 of this Standard, so that design assumptions are met. They went on to require documentation of the Quality Assurance effort (after all, you can’t manage what you don’t measure…and if you didn’t document it you didn’t do it!). Section 3.1.3 states: Truss Manufacturers and inspection agencies shall establish methods that document the application of these quality assurance procedures throughout the manufacturing process. The Truss Manufacturer’s methods shall be subject to periodic audit for compliance with the requirements of this Standard by an approved inspection agency per Section R109 of the International Residential Code/ Section 109 Inspections of the International Building Code, where required by local authorities having Jurisdiction, or other means. Not only is the requirement for an In-Plant Quality Assurance Program mandated by ANSI/TPI 1, but periodic auditing of that procedure is codified within the IRC & IBC. Is your In-Plant Quality Control Manual up to date? Are you currently licensed with an approved inspection agency to perform periodic Third-Party inspections? Is your Truss Design Engineer assured of getting the assumed manufacturing quality from your plant? Their designs state that the seal on the design is for the individual component per ANSI/TPI 1…do you comply? READ/SUBSCRIBE ONLINE AT WWW.COMPONENTADVERTISER.COM

Updates on the solid wood market in Canada and the US provided by Keta Kosman, publisher and editor of Madison’s Lumber Reporter. Madison’s is a North American lumber and panel commodity price guide and market analysis newsletter, which has been published every Friday out of Vancouver, BC since 1952.

August Lumber Market Analysis By Keta Kosman Publisher, Madison's Lumber Reporter September 25, 2013

Lumber and panel trading of almost all products took off like a rocket when business resumed after the Labour Day long weekend. This is not a usual time of year for solid wood prices to be rising, and traders were generally taken by surprise as they leapt to fill the flurry of new orders.

Prices, of course, will remain firm through that time. As a result, benchmark dimension lumber commodity WSPF KD 2x4 #2&Btr prices bounced $10 to US$348 mfbm the week of September 20. Buying momentum continues to send prices up both in the cash market and on the futures trading board, bringing the expectation for the week of September 27 of US$355 or $360 mfbm on Western Spruce 2x4s.

Looking Backwards is OK but not if you want to know where you are going! Subscribe to Madison’s for weekly market analysis and forecasting.

Into September, suppliers were encouraged to see steady ordering from established customers as US home building and renovation activity continued the upward trend of the past year. Purchases from emerging markets remained steady as well, providing confidence that lumber sales in the final quarter of this Labour issues in British year will be maintained at current volumes. As a result, most forest operators Columbia, however, could come in Canada and the US have invested in harvesting over this summer season and www.madisonsreport.com to a head very soon. The United report their log yards well stocked. Steelworkers’ Wood Council issued As September passed the mid-way mark, lumber prices on the futures 72-hour strike notice September 18, on a very strong mandate trading board at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange finally came in line with from members, against Canfor’s Chetwynd and Plateau, BC, cash. When the September trading contract closed on the 15th, producers and operations. The employer immediately requested mediation, buyers felt increased confidence that the difficult times of the past five years meaning strike notice is frozen. might really be over. Both parties have assured Madison’s that the intent is to get a Sawmills noted that lumber and panel demand from the US continues strong, settlement. Mediation should start September 23 and must legally even as China seems to be poised for increased buying through autumn. Order conclude within ten days under normal circumstances. At issue files for most solid wood commodities are out to the first or second week of remains a tricky disagreement over wages or lump-sum payments, October, providing mills with a certainty of sales volumes at least to that date. which both the USW and Canfor maintain can be resolved with the help of an impartial third party. The union and company are negotiating to set a pattern agreement which will be used to renew labour contracts in BC’s north interior and south interior bargaining regions. The current contract expired in June. Once a pattern deal is set, publicly-traded companies to negotiate next are: Conifex, Hampton Lumber, and West Fraser in the north; and Tembec and Weyerhaeuser in the south.

even to the extent of developing a 28 hour training course in truss fabrication which potential employees had to pass. I lowered our workers comp x-mod to .58 and kept it there. I lead over 200 individuals and knew each one of them but I did have trouble with the names of their wives and children. I coordinated efforts of every department as if from one customer to another. I read extensively and studied trends in order to develop industry best practices. Customer satisfaction, quality and safety can and must work hand in hand. It is often said, "You can only offer two of the three things customers always want";and you must choose between Price, Quality or Service. I don't believe that is a true statement and the entity which can satisfy all three? ....has everyone else wondering how they do what they do! I put together production fabrications team which quadrupled production. I created a sawsystem which could handle 5,000 boards /shift with 7-800 set-ups.(on 1 component saw) I helped develop a fully automated functioning quality control devise for roof trusses which is now patented. I could go on and on about the past so, I will say, I overcame huge obstacles and I met with success. But failures followed those successes I am being honest. I think my best ideas will reflect additional lessons learned following such failure.
