Engineered Wood Products

TJI® Joists
Trus Joist developed the wooden I-joist 50 years ago and Weyerhaeuser continues to build on that legacy. Engineered to provide strength and consistency, these joists are a key part of making a high-performance floor. The dimensional stability of Trus Joist TJI joists help them resist the warping, twisting, and shrinking that can lead to squeaky floors. TJI joists are lightweight and come in long lengths, which makes them faster and easier to install than traditional framing and saves you both time and money.

With TJI joists, you get more than just a great product, you also get decades of research and real-world experience. All this results in better performing floors that use fewer trees while also reducing jobsite wood waste. It all starts with Trus Joist TJI joists.
