Pressure Treated Wood
The service life of any structure depends on the quality of lumber that is used to build it.
At Cedar Village we understand how critical it is to choose the right materials and products for your project. For more than 30 years, we've carried the largest selection of cedar and pressure treated lumber in Edmonton. Whether you are building a deck or a fence, remodelling your home, or need lumber for a DIY project, you can trust us to provide quality service and solutions.
Pressure-treated lumber is composed of spruce or pine wood that have been treated with Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ). The treatment is necessary so that the wood is able to withstand elements of rot or decay and to repel insects and micro-organisms. This material is ideal for use in the construction of decks, fences, and other outdoor projects and is safe to use for residential building projects. Treated lumber costs less than cedar, so it is the way to go if you are looking for economy and longevity. Treated lumber also stands up to abuse well, which is good for stairs with high traffic or decks that have a lot of furniture on them.
Pressure-treated lumber comes in two types: incised and non-incised. Incised wood has puncture marks and is ideal for projects that come into contact with soil. Non-incised wood does not have these puncture marks and works best for projects such as decks and fences. We can provide you with all the treated lumber you need in Edmonton.
We provide more than just the raw lumber too. You can also find hardware, fasteners, and wood stains at our lumber yard. When you are planning a home project and need lumber and other materials, contact us and we’ll get you set up.
