Tips for using BLOCK-IT* House Wrap:

  • Roll all seam and flashing tapes after installation with a J-roller to ensure proper bonding

  • Limit UV exposure to 6 months

Product Change: All Pressure Treated Lumber to be Treated for Ground Contact

April 20, 2016

As 2016 began, we saw changes on the horizon in the pressure treated lumber industry. Both the American Wood Protection Association and the ICC Evaluation Service have determined that wood used in many physically above-ground applications needs to be treated to Ground Contact requirements.  

 

Ground Contact treatment is necessary for physically above-ground material when:

 

  • soil or other debris may build up and stay in contact with the wood

  • there is insufficient ventilation to allow air circulation around the wood

  • material is installed <6 inches above ground on permeable building materials

  • material is installed in contact with non-durable untreated or older construction with any evidence of decay

  • wood is subject to frequent or recurring wetting 

  • used in tropical climates 

  • the wood is both: 

    • difficult to maintain, repair or replace and 

    • critical to the performance and safety of the entire system

 

 

Joists and beams for decks and docks fit both of these final criteria and therefore require Ground Contact treatment.    

 

As of 4/1/16 all of our pressure treated lumber in stock at both of our Concord Lumber and Littleton Lumber locations has been treated for ground contact. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please feel free to contact one of our locations.
