Marine Grade Lumber

If you’re working in a marine environment, you need Marine Grade Lumber to fight the effects of long-term exposure to moisture. Our Copper Chromium Arsenate (CCA) treated lumber helps prevent rotting and decay when exposed to or submerged in water.

Our Marine Grade Lumber can withstand saltwater splash and saltwater submersion, increasing the longevity of your marine project. We supply this lumber in various shapes and sizes including piling. Contact us if you need a custom size.
