The finished colour of treated timber

We’re often asked about the different colours of treated timber and these two packs illustrate things nicely. The posts in the two packs are of the same timber cut the same day but treated two weeks apart.

The pack on the left goes a warm honey colour in the sun exactly as it is supposed to according to the treatment manufacturer BASF Wolman. The pack on the right is freshly treated in green.

As the packs come out of our Timber Treatment Centre there will be slight variations in colour between different pieces of treated timber in the same pack. No two bits of timber are the same so they react to the treatment solution in slightly different ways. You can see these subtle differences more clearly in the green pack. Once on site however the colour evens out as the timber weathers and the end result is spot on!
