Does anybody know what the definitions are for the different types of grades? The one of course I, and most people, are familiar with is builder's grade. How is this rated and what is comparable to builders grade? Also, what is better than and worse than builders grade? Any information would be GREATLY GREATLY appreciated beyond words!

Thank you so much!

The person using that term or making it up should be the one to define it. What is the context?

I have to ask, because after 35 years building in one way or another, I have only heard the term once before this and that wasa in a generic estimating program which placed "builder's grade" cabinets barely above "economy grade"

My idea was always that a builder knows well enough to buy at least a middle ground cabineet..

ohter than that, grading standards are different for Frame lumber, rough stock, Plywood, cedar shingles etc., and sometimes from one side of the country to the other

Excellence is its own reward!
