Whether claiming to be greener, straighter, or lighter, these engineered lumber products boast improvements over solid wood and other lumber of their kind.

TemStock-Free, a composite panel product, contains no added urea formaldehyde and is made from 100% recycled or recovered fiber content.

Made by Temple-Inland, it can hold fasteners and be machined and laminated, the manufacturer says. The particle board comes 1/4- to 11/8-inches thick, and in 4-foot wide sheets from 8 to 24 feet long. It contributes to LEED and Green Globe points. 800.424.2311. www.templeinland.com .

The GreenT line of hardwood plywood by Timber Products Co. is available with cores made from recycled wood fibers and a resin that has no added formaldehyde. It qualifies for LEED credits and uses wood certified under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. 800.547.9520. www.timberproducts.com .

Made through a process that fuses together wood and glass, TimberSil by Timber Treatment Technologies has mold and mildew protection; a barrier against termites, rot, and decay; and improved fire resistance, the maker says. The nontoxic, noncorrosive lumber releases no volatile organic compounds and comes ready for painting or staining. 703.644.0991. www.timbersilwood.com .

WindBrace, an extended-length OSB sidewall sheathing panel, comes 11/8 inches taller than typical OSB sidewalls, says maker Roy O. Martin.
