Heavy Timbers


Why Use Treated Heavy Timbers?

Pressure Treating Heavy Timber increases the longevity and appearance of the wood. The chemical preservative that the material is treated in makes the timbers resistant to insects, fungal decay, and moisture. It also protects the material in severe weather conditions.

Uses for Heavy Timber

Heavy timber is used in both commercial and residential buildings. Heavy timber is more recently being used in the construction of new homes and “Barndominiums”. Heavy Timbers are often left exposed inside this style of home to give the home a more rustic look.
