The Treatment Process
Why Pressure Treated Wood?
Pressure treated wood, most often Yellow Southern Pine, is treated in a chemically precise way to prevent and resist rot, decay, termites. The level of resistance is determined by the amount of chemical preservatives and the type of preservatives used.

More About the Process
Our treated lumber products include the newest generation of Copper Azole (CA) and Copper Chrome Arsenic (CCA). Due to the fact that chemicals are driven under pressure deep into the wood, the protection goes far beyond the surface. The CA line of products provides protection from rot, decay and termites with added options for water repellency.
During the treatment process, lumber is loaded into a horizontal vacuum-pressure cylinder. After the door is sealed, a vacuum cycle removes the air from the cylinder. A liquid preservative solution is precisely pumped in and the pressure is raised, forcing the solution into the wood.
Each treatment cycle is carefully monitored to ensure proper treatment and product quality. The protection goes far beyond the surface and right into the heart of the wood.
