Treated lumber and timbers are a proven product. They are are structurally sound, visually appealing, and cost-effective. The only potential downside is that wood is subject to attack and decay from insects, fungus, and other bacteria. Pressure treating can protect against wood's natural enemies. Southern Yellow Pine, in particular, is a perfect host for pressure treatments. SYP can be treated to high retention--suitable for submerging the timbers in saltwater environments.

Creosote is an oil-based pressure treatment that has been used for decades in industrial applications. Creosote treating offers the longest possible service life for our timbers and piling. Because of its long life and durability, it is used in critical applications such as railroads, marine piling, and other frequent-use or extreme environments. In some cases, creosote utility poles have been known to last up to 100 years*.
Creosote is dark brown or even black in appearance. Over time and after exposure to the sun, creosote fades to a lighter shade of brown but does not lose its effectiveness.
