Kiln Drying

500,000 BFKiln Capacity

Rex Lumber Company has 500,000 BF of kiln capacity with dry kilns located in our Englishtown, New Jersey and Acton, Massachusetts locations. The dry kilns use wood waste boilers that are fueled by saw dust and chips generated from our millwork operations.  We have extensive experience in drying green domestic and tropical lumber, often to rigorous specifications for specialty and musical instrument markets.  We pride ourselves in taking meticulous care, especially with white species that are prone to easily staining.  We use fluted or “Breeze Dry” stickers to try to avoid or minimize sticker staining. End sealing is used and stickers are placed every 12” and at each end of the pile to ensure flat boards with minimal end checking. Experienced kiln operators follow proven schedules and check samples regularly during the course of the drying process to ensure flat, straight, bright, stress free lumber.

We also have the capability of custom drying your lumber to your specifications.
