SFPA Ends Year with Caribbean Seminar

December 17, 2020
Webinar screen shot

SFPA wrapped up this year’s schedule of webinars with Antigua and Curaçao in late October. Like elsewhere in the Caribbean, the U.S. has a dominant share of these markets but faces competition from alternative building materials such as concrete and steel. As seen throughout the Caribbean, the driving force behind this competition stems from a general misunderstanding of wood-frame construction practices and selecting the proper grades and sizes for the application. The webinar sought to remedy some of these misunderstandings, and the 23 professionals who attended indicated that they were likely to increase purchases of U.S. softwoods following the event.
