When it comes to timber treatment, it’s important to ensure that your wood is protected from all forms of insects, wood-destroying fungi and other biological decay.
In order to do this, the timber industry use a ‘Use Class’ system, determining the level of treatment required in relation to the environment the timber is likely to be used in. The higher the class number, the higher the risk, and as a result, the stronger solution needed.
It is essential to specify the correct Use Class needed prior to the treatment, which is why timber treatment company WJ offer detailed guidance to customers to help them make the right decision. As specialists in low and high-pressure preservative timber treatments, they provide warranties of 10 and 15 years with anticipated life expectancies of between 15 to 60 years.
You should check that any Treater has Benchmark approval under the Wood Protection Associations Quality Assurance Scheme to ensure that your treatment can be checked back through robust records to verify that timber is impregnated to the correct Use Class.
