Keep it off the ground
Other structural pieces like I-Joists should also be kept off the ground on heavy-duty bearers. This will stop any moisture on the ground seeping into the wood and ruining it. If you don’t have a suitable building for storing these items, make sure to place them on firm, flat, well-drained ground. It’s worth investing in a racking system to store and display your timber. Not only will this save valuable floor space, it will protect your products, air them properly, and improve access to individual sheets or timber.
