In the mid-1970s, Timber Products Inspection was approached by members of the log home industry and related regulatory groups and asked to increase our skills to cover grading needs for building logs for both residential and commercial uses. We answered that need and now provide a nationwide grading and gradestamping program to log home manufacturers. TP’s grading rules and subsequent design values are based on the nationally recognized Standard ASTM D3957 “Standard Methods for Establishing Stress Grades for Structural Members Used in Log Buildings.”A long-time industry leader, TP’s log grading program is accepted by the International Code Council and the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development.  
OUR VALUE-ADDED SERVICES:
Lot or individual home inspection grading services for homeowners, builders or manufacturers with smaller production levels. Engineering services which provide TP’s in-house structural design expertise to homeowners, builders and manufacturers. Training services for manufacturers, individuals or groups to gain additional skills.
