Poles and Pilings

*Poles generally vary 1" in diameter per ten feet of length

  • Poles and Pilings have long life spans due to reduced heartwood exposure.
  • They can be sanded, stained, or painted to match existing décor.
  • Poles and Pilings are stronger and suffer less warping than dimensional timbers.
  • Long life span and superior strength make them very cost effective.
  • Very Popular for “Southwest” look.

Definitions:
Pole defined by its particular structural installation. If the pole is set with the butt (large end) in the ground, such as a utility pole or barn pole, it is referred to as a pole.
Piling – also defined by its installation. Pilings are driven into the ground with the tip (small end) first.


Untreated Peeled Posts

Untreated peeled posts can be selected and dried for furniture, porch posts, or many interior projects. They are especially great for the “Southwest Look.”


Treated Posts

When treated, posts are excellent materials for outdoor use such as fencing, stables, stakes, and small buildings. Larger posts are often called Solid Structural Rounds (SSRs) and are used for interior and exterior columns and beams.
