Trim Products

Purchasing the correct trim for your project is an important part of achieving your desired look.  Trim is generally going to be used as accents to your paneling or flooring and to highlight important areas of your project.  Bear Creek Lumber has the ability to provide trim in a wide range of options, including both softwoods and hardwoods.

The most common wood species that we sell for trim include Western Red Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar, Port Orford Cedar, Redwood, Douglas Fir / Larch, Pine / Spruce, Hemlock, Mahogany & Sapele.  However, we can obtain other various species of wood through our extensive partner network or mills and wholesalers.


Trim materials can come in various thicknesses and widths depending on what part of the project they are being used.  Common net thickness that we see are 1/2", 5/8", 11/16", 3/4", 1" and 1-1/2".  Common nominal widths we see are 2", 3", 4", 5", 6", 8", 10" and 12".  Please keep in mind that net widths are going to be 1/2" under for sizes 6" and below and 3/4" under on sizes 8" and above.



One of the great aspects of working with Bear Creek Lumber on your trim needs is that we can offer a wide variety of grades for your trim materials.  We can offer various grades of clear, including A&Better, B&Better, C&Better and D&Better, as well as fiber with flat, vertical or mixed grain. 

With the knotty grades of our Cedar products, the most commonly supplied grade is going to be Select Knotty, but we can also supply Quality Knotty.  When purchasing a Select Knotty on a random length count it is common that it will come with an allowance of up to 15% of the material to be of the Quality Knotty grade. Other other non-cedar softwoods are going to be supplied in knotty as #1, #2 or #3 grades.


When ordering your trim it is important to keep in mind if you are looking for a smooth or resawn texture to the materials. 

If you are looking for a smooth texture it is your best bet to purchase materials that are either Surfaced Four Sides (S4S) or Surfaced One Side Two Edges (S1S2E).  Please be aware that S1S2E materials generally are graded at the mill level for the resawn face, so if you need a smooth face you need to indicate that to your sales representative. 

If you need a resawn or rustic texture, then you can buy the S1S2E, resawn or rough cut materials.  Be aware that buying different patterns of trim that you may end up with different sizing, so always be informative to your sales rep about net sizes if there are specific needs.


It is common for many of the trim products we sell to be in stock as a dry material.  However, we also carry some green trim products as well.  If you need your trim materials to arrive on the jobsite already dry, it is important that you either purchase kiln dried materials or order in advance so that you can dry and acclimate the materials prior to installations.
