Our Pressure Treated wood products are treated with the Osmose MicroPro process. This process results in the release of 90% to 99% less copper into aquatic and terrestrial environments when compared to standard treated wood products. This makes MicroPro an ideal treatment for lumber used for decks and outdoor projects on Nantucket. All standard framing dimensions are in stock along with decking and landscape timbers. Custom orders for docks, piers and water contact are available as well.




We have several decking products to choose from for your outdoor projects.
• Pressure treated southern yellow pine in 1x4 and 1x6, 5/4 x 6
• 1x4 Douglas Fir--Douglas Fir is a very beautiful and versatile wood and has rot resistant qualities, which allows it to be used outdoors. Our Douglas Fir is essentially knot free and is "vertical grain" this means that the grain of the wood is very straight and parallel with the next growth ring, which creates a uniform appearance and makes Fir less likely to warp or twist on the job.
• 1x4, 5/4 x 6 Red Balau--Red Balau is a very durable Mahogany from Indonesia. This hardwood's natural resistance to shrinkage, splintering and checking has made it a terrific wood for use as an ideal and beautiful decking material.
• 1x6 IPE (pronounced EE-pay) is the finest quality wood available. From the Atlantic City Boardwalk, to Las Vegas' Resort Hotel Treasure Island, to your own backyard, nothing keeps its integrity or lasts as long as IPE Decking. IPE is an exotic hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot and decay. One of the hardest and most durable decking products available.
