Walls support roofs, floors and ceilings, and they enclose a space as part of a building envelope. Exterior walls carry a load, hold windows and protect the interior from the environment. Interior walls on the other hand define your living space, control traffic, and some are designed to do more than separate rooms by carrying a load. At Economy Lumber Piedmont we carry products to build and finish walls so they insulate, shed water, repel moisture and create that space you call home.
