Arbor Wood Co. is the new and innovative choice in modified wood applications.
Arbor Wood Co. (AWCo) offers thermally modified timber for a variety of outdoor and indoor applications. AWCo Thermally Modified Timber (TMT) is domestically-sourced and sustainably harvested wood which undergoes a value-added thermal modification process. The result is high-quality, performance-driven timber, which sustains the natural beauty and design element of wood.
Thermal Modification is a unique craft which alters the dimensional composition of timber to create a material which is functionally and visually successful in a range of residential and commercial markets. High heat and steam replace chemicals to fundamentally modify the cell structure of wood, making it one of the most natural, chemical-free ways to extend the service life of a wood product. The wood is less absorbent resulting in an increase of material stability with less warping/cupping and minimal expansion/contraction. Importantly, the organic compounds are cooked out of the wood removing the food source for rot and insects. The conversion of sugars to a nonfood source also turn the timber a darker, richer through-color, providing an appealing, refined aesthetic.
AWCo TMT is a sound choice in environments typically unforgiving to wood, such as exterior decking and siding or interior flooring, or where a low-maintenance wood product is desired.
AWCo. Decking is domestically harvested, but has the look of exotic woods.
AWCo. Siding resists rot and decay without the use of added chemicals
AWCo. offers interior flooring that has increased durability and longevity.
