In applications where wood may be exposed to moisture, insects or fungal organisms, preservative-treated wood can help ensure a building’s durability. In this presentation, participants will learn about the manufacturing process for pressure-treated wood, available products and their differences, and how preserved wood is used in construction. Topics will include types of preservative treatments and the required levels of retention, as dictated by the end-use application, desired service life and exposure conditions. AWPA Use Category standards and ICC-ES Report Evaluations will be reviewed, and current issues concerning treated wood in residential and commercial construction be discussed. Participants will also receive free access to the Treated Lumber smartphone app.
