Rona – ‘Prime’ Wood, or Shit?

So I’ve been doing limited construction work since I was small as my family did a TON of renos. So when I started dating my partner Todd, who has had over 15 years of experience in the construction industry, it was neat to see from an on site perspective.

One thing that hasn’t changed is Rona’s quality of wood. As a child we always got the discount bins of bent wood, and I believe one was a returned pallet of wood. I thought it was because of my mum’s thriftiness that we had to sort through the wood, always excited on the deal.

But what I didn’t realize is that the ‘Prime wood’ is just a little bit better then the wood that we sorted through. One of the biggest annoyances is their unproperly marked two by fours. The blue paint mark that should signify 104 and a 1/4 inch long, but these lengths vary anywhere from a sliver to 3 inches off.

So the next time you go to buy a pallet of two by fours, go in person. Get them to show you the pallet. Then measure it. If they can’t produce a proper product, then they don’t deserve business. Companies need to be made aware that they can’t get away with their malpractices.
