Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
When working on any new construction project, it’s important to remember that not all lumber is created equal. Basic dimensional lumber is fine for most interior structures, but specially treated options are required for exterior applications. In addition to regular treated lumber that is more resistant to moisture, people throughout the Houston area are discovering the benefits of fire resistant lumber. Now available from Bayou City Lumber, this particular type of construction material is particularly well-suited to the unique needs of people throughout Eastern Texas.
Bayou City Lumber cares about customer service and satisfaction, so they sell high-quality merchandise at reasonable prices. Fire resistant lumber has been in use for decades and has shown that it will withstand the test of time, the threats of fire and other hazards. This makes it a great choice for ranchers who don’t want the fire in one part of their property to travel up a fence line, but it also makes it a great choice for people in the suburbs who want an extra layer of protection from wildfires or lightning strikes. The product is so effective at resisting active burning that it can be used in lieu of sprinkler systems or parapet walls, and it’s a much more cost-effective choice than those alternatives.
With an extensive inventory of dimensions available, Bayou City can meet most demands for fire resistant lumber. They keep this item fully stocked because it’s in high demand. It offers several important benefits that aren’t available in other wood products. A pressure-treated lumber option, it’s resistant to corrosion as well as fire. It’s been independently tested to show that it won’t buckle or twist in a fire. As easy to work with as other wood products, it meets or exceeds all specifications necessary to label it as fire resistance. It’s a top choice for fences, outbuilding, decking and other construction projects, so it’s offered in a wide range of sizes. The team at Bayou City Lumber can also special order sizes if they don’t have specific dimensions in stock.
