Treated Lumber

Type of Lumber: Treated Lumber

24-treated-lumberAt Lampert Lumber, we realize that some of the most satisfying projects to complete are outdoor projects. Whether you are building a fence, table or deck, your project will provide you with years of beauty, privacy and entertainment. There are specific types of lumber that work best for this type of job and we often recommend pressure treated wood. When you build with untreated wood, it is unfortunately a feeding ground for insects and bacteria and can get destroyed within a couple years.

Our Great Selection of Lumber

In order to protect the lumber from insects, fungus and other microorganisms, the wood is chemically protected with a process called pressure treating. Depending on which risk you are trying to avoid, wood can be treated with anything from pesticides to fire retardants. Treated lumber usually lasts for up to 20 years or more, which makes it a great choice for home projects. Because this is chemically-treated lumber, we do recommend to always wear gloves and protective eyewear when handling.
