Kiln-Dried Lumber for Fencing
Kiln-dried lumber is an ideal choice for fencing projects. By choosing kiln-dried lumber from MTE Wood for your fencing projects, you're investing in wood with superior durability, longevity, craftsmanship and environmental consciousness. Here's how opting for kiln-dried wood from MTE enhances your fencing experience:
Unbeatable Stability: Kiln-drying involves carefully controlling the wood's moisture content, resulting in a more stable and consistent material. This stability of our kiln-dried wood minimizes the risks of warping, twisting and cracking and maintains the fence's shape and integrity over time.
Reduced Decay and Rot: The drying process effectively removes excess moisture, reducing fungal growth and wood decay. Kiln-dried lumber is inherently more resistant to rot due to its reduced moisture content, providing a longer lifespan for your fence- even in damp or humid environments.
Improved Strength: Kiln-dried wood is stronger, and this increased strength translates to a more reliable fence capable of withstanding various weather conditions and external forces.
Better Paint and Stain Adhesion: Kiln-dried lumber tends to have a smoother surface texture, allowing more effective application of paints, stains and finishes. Our kiln-dried wood gives your fence a durable finish with unrivaled aesthetic appeal.
Less Shrinkage: Kiln-dried wood experiences minimal shrinkage after installation compared to green or air-dried wood, which reduces gaps between boards and maintains the visual consistency and privacy features of your fence.
Faster Installation: Kiln-dried lumber's reduced moisture content makes it lighter and easier to handle during installation. Its stability also means fewer adjustments during the building process to streamline the overall construction process.
Minimal Insect Infestation: The kiln drying process effectively kills or removes many insects and their larvae in the wood, reducing the likelihood of pest-related issues and extending the longevity of your fence.
Consistent Size and Shape: Kiln-dried lumber is carefully dried to specific moisture levels, resulting in consistent dimensions. This uniformity simplifies the construction process, ensuring a professional-looking fence with straight lines and even spacing.
What is Kiln-Dried Lumber for Fencing?
Kiln-dried fencing refers to fencing lumber that has undergone a specialized drying process called "kiln drying." Kiln drying is a method of reducing the lumber's moisture content by using temperature-controlled chambers, or kilns, prior to the fence's construction. The process involves placing the wood inside a kiln and increasing the temperature while controlling humidity levels with the goal of removing excess moisture from the wood to reduce the risk of warping, cracking, and other damage.
