Every homeowner wants to have a house that not only looks great, but also is able to stand the test of time.
Treated lumber is the perfect solution.
What is Treated Lumber?
Treated lumber is a type of wood that has been treated with certain varieties of chemicals. Why? Because treating the wood in this way helps it to be preserved, and ultimately, last longer than untreated or natural wood.
Treated lumber is a popular choice for many homeowners, especially when it comes to home construction, renovations, and remodels.
Benefits of Treated Lumber
Treated lumber is a go-to option for a reason. Check out just a few of the many benefits:
- Increases Moisture Resistance: By resisting moisture, treated lumber helps prevent decay and other problems that can be a result of water.
- Repels Insects: Untreated wood is often the home of choice for many insects. But with treated lumber, wood-boring bees and other pests are less likely to invade it.
- Improves Weather Durability: If you live in the midwest, you know weather can be unpredictable. Luckily, treated lumber helps protect from some of the damage extreme weather can cause.
