Testimonial for Posts & Columns

Treated Posts and Poles - treated dock poles, pier and bulkhead pilings

Treated posts and poles used for marine or shoreline construction should be treated to a higher retention level than poles and posts for farm and ranch projects. The life of your marine structure will be greatly affected by ensuring you are using the proper treatment for your project. Poles and pilings used in freshwater usually require a treatment of .60 pcf whereas treated poles and pilings used in saltwater will require a much higher retention level of 2.5 pcf.

We will help you make sure your treated poles are the best for your project and we ship anywhere. We can also pre-drill, pre-cut, or customize poles to your specifications.

Treated Posts and Poles that Last Longer - Cost Effective Longevity

KILN DRY Before Treatment - The most common failure of a post or pole is rot and decay at the ground line. By kiln drying your posts before they are treated, we significantly increase the life of your project.


Kiln drying pulls excess moisture from the post or pole allowing the pressure treatment to fully penetrate the wood. The additional cost of this service is minimal (usually less than $1 for a 4" Top x 8 ft post), especially considering the fact that the pre-drying will effectively double the life of a post used for a fence. Contact us online to ask about pre-drying poles.

Polymer Wood Coating - For an ultra long-lasting treated barn pole or fence post, zone coat the wood at the ground line with long lasting polymer wood coating. The special poly wood coating is sprayed on at our manufacturing facilities and creates an impenetrable barrier to termites and marine borers. Polymer coated wood is used commonly in marine environments to shield treated poles and pilings from harmful marine borers and the harsh water environment.
