Wood Treatment Services

We offer Kiln Drying and heat treating Services. The production of quality lumber starts with good, well cared-for logs. Protect timber and other construction components from cracks and checks, abrasion and mechanical damage.

Incising hard-to-treat species such as Douglas Fir, provides the depth of penetration that is necessary to adequately provide a proper treatment.
