"Wet" Treated Decks Vs. Our Brown Treated Decks

Wood is a porous material, which makes it ideal for the pressure treating process. Because it is porous, wood has a natural tendency to warp, cup, twist, crack, check, shrink and swell as it is exposed to wetting and drying cycles.

The pressure treating process fully saturates wood with preservatives and water. While the preservative is left in the wood for protection, the water is released as the wood naturally dries, bringing out these natural characteristics.

Kiln Dried After Treatment, “KDAT” is a process that removes this excess moisture from wood introduced by the treating process. Kiln drying after treatment helps to improve the performance and stability of pressure-treated wood.
