What is Pressure Treated?
Pressured treated timber is wood which has been pressure impregnated, providing it with the most advanced, universal wood preservative, ensuring that your pressure treated sheds can survive the most testing of conditions, both inside and out!
Where can Pressure Treated Timber be used?
Pressure Treated Timber can be used in all buildings, or even as part of fencing or garden applications, that have to withstand the most extreme environments, that are even in contact with fresh or sea water. This is why this kind of wood is popular in sheds, to gives customers peace of mind that their investment will last them for a long time.
How long will Pressure Treated Timber last?
Pressure Treated timber is treated to perform to its eventual end use. Once installed the timber needs no further maintenance against rot for many years although a paint, stain or water based repellent should be added when required to keep it looking in good as new conditions. We have buildings in gardens that are more than 30 years old!
Is Pressure Treated Timber safe?
After treatment, the preservative chemicals become totally ‘fixed’ within the timber cells and cannot be washed out. The treated timber is totally safe to man, animals, and plants and is permanently protected against decay. If water penetration occurs a water-based repellent should be added.
