What are the benefits of Thermally Modified Wood?

  1. Improved resistance to mold, rot and fungal decay as the naturally occurring food sources for these sorts of deterioration are converted or removed during the modification process. Arbor Wood is a natural wood product with the durability of an engineered material.

  2. Improved dimensional stability, means that the wood is less susceptible to expansion and contraction due to temperature or humidity fluctuations. The process of thermal modification changes Arbor Wood’s relationship with water, thus creating a natural building material with the stability of an engineered product.

  3. Lightweight and easy to work with! The reduced moisture content makes Arbor Wood lighter in weight than traditional wood building materials such as pressure-treated pine or even exotic hardwoods. As a result, many people find Arbor Wood easier to work with.
