Our products are cool:
Take pressure treated wood. Before the year is out, we will sell more than 250 million feet of treated wood and related products.
The process of treating wood makes lumber more durable and cost effective. By paying a bit extra at the time of purchase, the customer purchases a product that won’t rot due to infestation or exposure to the elements.
Cared for properly, the wood structures built with treated wood last longer and saves the customer from the aggravation and cost of frequent replacement.
Treating wood extends the life of our nation’s lumber resource. Longer life and less frequent replacement leaves trees in the forest to grow for future use.
The chemical formulations we use have been continually improved. A great deal of research and effort goes into assuring the presence of our chemical won’t be a detriment when it is employed.

In addition to treating to preserve wood, we treat to inhibit mold so that consumers won’t be stricken with disease associated with mold spores. We make residences safer.
Treated lumber is more economical than synthetics and other man made materials. The enhancement of wood opens the door to employing the use of wood in innovative ways. Treated wood makes some projects possible because of its economical benefit.
