Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
When shopping for materials intended for building projects, it's always important to have certain metrics for determining their quality. This includes lumber (or timber), which remains one of the most popular building materials. Because of greater exposure to the elements, lumber used for the exterior of housing projects are especially in need of specially treated options. One such process is pressure treatment, and recently Houston-based company Bayou City Lumber introduced new inventories of pressure treated lumber options.
In business since the mid-1990s, Bayou City Lumber is far from the average lumber yard. The yard itself spans 8.5 acres, and is filled with virtually all building materials imaginable. The company's personnel has a combined 100 years of experience in the construction industry. For the past two decades Bayou City Lumber has been committed to providing the Houston and Eastern Texas area in general with high-quality materials, including those materials certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and noted for their energy efficiency.
With pressure treatment options, Bayou City Lumber extends the life of their lumber. This means that the wood remains more durable over time and has a stronger resistance to destructive forces, such as fire, fungus, insects, and rust. Bayou City Lumber has three types of pressure treated lumber products. Surfaced timbers come with a smooth finish; and they are perfect for gazebos, decks, and bulkhead walers and pilings. Large timbers are noted for their full sizes and greater strength due to more mass. Thus, they are best suited for boat houses, bridges, and house pilings. Also available in full size are rough timbers, which are characterized by their rough sawmill finish. This option is particularly pressure treated for ground contact, freshwater or saltwater. This makes it an ideal option for piers, in addition to barns and timber trusses. It is also the ideal option for builders who want to go with a rough look. The new inventory of pressure treated lumber expands upon Bayou City Lumber's large inventory and expands the construction options available to Houston-area residents.
Founded in 1994, Bayou City Lumber gradually expanded their services in timber to include other building materials like poles, pilings, and fire retardants. Bayou City Lumber work on everything from residential houses to buildings of large corporations. The company is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) in recognition for its commitment to responsible forestry and green building, respectively.
