I am building a fence with hardwood facing. The lumber yard (not a big box store) selected the lumber, batu decking boards, and delivered it. These are fairly expensive, 1x6 x 8' and 1x4 x 8' boards.
I know that a certain percent of boards have issues. In the past I have hand picked, avoiding less good boards.
What are good enough reasons that might cause me to justifiably return a board? I am ignorant on this point and don't want to be unreasonable about it. End split (N inches or more inches)? Packing strap damage? Through fractures at a crushed spot? Dull planer, so rough board? Splits / splintering on the machined edges?
I am talking a few hundred linear feet of hardwood lumber.
