Our process begins with procuring domestically-sourced and sustainably harvested wood. After the wood is kiln-dried to a consistent moisture content, the next step is to thermally modify the timber, which broadens its service life and gives the native species an exotic, darker look. Finally, the material is milled to profiles that work for exterior decking and siding, as well as interior flooring.
When the wood is introduced to the thermal modification process, it is subjected to high heat and steam in a controlled environment which then changes the dimensional composition and appearance of the timber. AWCo offers two temperature options: 190˚C and 210˚C.
The TMT (Thermally Modified Timber) raw stock is then processed regionally into siding, decking and flooring products
