What is Pressure Treated Wood?
Pressure treating is the process of curing wood to preserve and protect it from natural elements. If you want your wooden deck or porch to remain intact for many more years to come, you need to treat the wood correctly. Many people regard pressure treating as the most effective method of preserving wood.
When water gets into your deck and settles into the wood it can quickly eat away at the timber and cause it to rot. Alternatively, fungal infections could grow within the damp and ruin the integrity of your deck or porch.
The pressure that pushes the treatment into the wood allows the component to penetrate the wood deeply. This gets the treatment all the way to the core of the wood, protecting every part of the timber possible. When you coat your deck with treatment using a brush you’re only treating the surface layer.
Nowadays pressure treated wood is very effective and sure to protect your deck or porch for many years. A lot of manufacturers suggest using pressure treated wood for outdoor areas rather than any other material.
How Much Does Pressure Treated Wood Cost?
Pressure treated wood is relatively inexpensive when it comes to building a deck. The fact that your deck is an investment makes the reasonable cost even better. Finally, the promise of protected wood for many years to come is enough to solidify your choice.
Having said that, it does depend on how much wood you’re going to need to build your deck. Once you’ve determined the size of your deck you can begin to estimate a cost. On average, a 6 x 7 x 2 feet piece of pressure treated lumber costs around $5 to $8.
So, if you wanted to create a 100 square foot deck you’d be looking at a cost of $930 in wood. Bear in mind that this is only regarding the wood. There will be an additional cost for the rest of the materials made to make the deck as well as the labor price.
