Pressure treated wood is wood that has gone through a pressure treatment to force preservatives into the wood to help protect it from termites, other insects, and fungal decay. Not only is pressure treated wood beautiful, but it is inexpensive, easy to work with and doesn't require any specialized tools. Turkstra is proud to carry both traditional pressure treated products and pressure treated wood from MicroPro Sienna, who uses the latest technology in safe, sustainable, and beautiful pressure treated lumber.
Treated wood can be used for wood structures that require resistance to termites and fungal decay - in decks, fences, gazebos, playground equipment, docks, marinas, raised garden beds, landscape, agricultural uses and industrial applications, such as utility poles, railway ties and bridges. A water repellent or wood sealer specially formulated for pressure treated lumber may be applied periodically to reduce cracking and splitting of wood and thus the likelihood of children getting splinters.
