Pressure-Treated Lumber 

Let us begin by destroying a commonly held belief — just because lumber has been "pressure-treated" and is now green in color does not mean it is all the same. That incorrect analogy is somewhat like saying all cars are the same because they all have four wheels!

Here is the gospel on McGee Lumber's treated lumber — As you would expect, we will start with only the finest construction grade of lumber that we can get — #1 grade, or better, Southern Yellow Pine. When you start with fine lumber you can produce an excellent finished product (as opposed to starting with junk in the hopes that somehow you can turn that junk into a good finished product).

In the second step of making McGee Pressure-Treated Lumber,
has made a radical change.  In order to be more environmentally friendly, McGee Pressure-Treated Lumber is treated with Copper Azole (CA-B) rather than Chromated Copper Arsenate.  Be sure that you specify only Copper Azole any time you buy Pressure Treated Lumber.  While Copper Azole is relatively new in the United States, it has a fabulous record in Europe and elsewhere.

McGee Pressure-Treated Lumber Is Different

The third step that sets us apart from most pressure-treated wood is that after the wood is treated it goes back into the lumber kiln to be dried again

Why is this step important? 

Pressure-Treated Lumber that is dry when used will be stronger than non-redried Pressure-Treated Lumber. Redried wood is more dimensionally stable than non-redried (This is a fancy way of saying redried wood is less likely to warp, twist and curl than non-redried). 

Oftentimes with non-redried wood you will have a problem with wood shrinking away from the nails as well as nails actually working their way out of the wood. Not so with wood that is redried.

Finally, in all of our 2x4, 2x6, 5/4x6, 1x4, 1x6, and 1x8 Pressure-Treated Lumber, we pressure treat into it a water repellant chemical. This added water repellency keeps the Pressure-Treated Lumber new looking longer. 

Quality Pressure-Treated Lumber and ROI

Perhaps you have experienced seeing a brand new deck made from "economy" treated wood. It looks great and the purchaser brags about how much money he saved by searching around and finding the cheapest Pressure-Treated Lumber he could find. Perhaps then you again saw that same deck in about three years.

Oftentimes it now looks like wood that is ready for the junk heap and the so called economy of the wood has now become a situation where the decking must be replaced. What happened to the economy? It disappears when the deck is replaced. 

The moral of the story? You get what you pay for. We honestly believe that our premium treated product is the least expensive treated wood you can buy. The reason? 

Our Pressure-Treated Lumber not only lasts longer than an inferior product but we think that our treated wood will look better for longer. Good looking and long lasting is much less expensive than cheap Pressure-Treated Lumber that goes bad quickly.

We also have larger timbers — 4x6, 6x6, and even 8x8 treated if your project requires these heavy timbers. Give us a call about these items.
