THERMO TREATED LUMBER
Thermo treated lumber has been dried at 400 degrees F and by
using steam it keeps the wood from burning or cracking. Thermo treatment actually changes the
molecular structure of the wood. This
treatment will enhance the lumbers ability to repel water and makes the wood
more stable. This is a way to help the
wood last longer in an outdoor environment such as decking or siding naturally
without adding chemicals. Thermo
treating will darken the color of the wood to rich chocolate color.
The benefits of Thermo treat wood are:
It is earth friendly, no chemicals are added
only heat generated (in our case) by using waste wood.
The dust and waste is non-toxic
Enhances the color to a warm brown
Rearranges the structure of the cells so they
will not take on as much moisture and this makes the wood more stable and last
The lumber will be lighter in weight without
It disperses heat so compared to composite
decking it will be cooler to walk or sit on.
