16 Dec How to choose the right wood lath for your next construction project
Nothing is more frustrating than finding that your wood lath has failed to do the job on site, or worse, that you need to throw out pieces before you’ve even gotten started! Whether you’re in the construction industry, or a surveyor, excavation and sitework contractors, high quality wood lath is an indispensable tool—but how do you know which kind is the best?
At MMD, we’ve been providing the most durable wood lath available in the USA across various industries since 1985. We’re passionate about helping the fine people in the construction industry to do their jobs more quickly and easily, which is why we don’t use cheap wood blends that have a tendency to splinter or split. Instead, we craft ours out of oak, poplar, and spruce, because they’re known to stand the test of time without breaking the bank for our customers.
