“When homeowners, retailers, and architects want information on a product they turn to the Internet,” says SCMA vice president Shepard Haggerty, Williams Lumber Co. of Rocky Mount, N.C. “With the recent updates, our website is more informative, more attractive and easier to navigate than ever before.”

A click on the Installation & Specifications tab provides sourcing and specification information, including cypress grades, span tables, working characteristics, strength and mechanical specifications, and more.

At the Media Center, visitors can download a growing catalog of case studies featuring extraordinary homes and commercial buildings. Each study showcases the natural beauty, durability, and versatile functionality of cypress with comments from the projects’ architects.

The Outdoor Applicationstab offers information on cypress siding and decking, as well as do-it-yourself articles and videos on building privacy fences, raised garden beds, even window boxes. And Photo Galleries, showcasing cypress in commercial and residential applications, can be found at both the Outdoor Applications and Interior Uses tabs.
