Brackett Brothers utilizes the Wolmanized
and Natural-Select wood treatment methods to help preserve
our wood products. These treatments can be applied on-site to most
of the wood products that we carry.
There are many treatment methods in use today. We choose to use the
Wolmanized and Natural-Select methods not only because of the
excellence of their products, but also because of each company's strong
commitment to the environment and to the safety of you and your family.
Wood treated with the Wolmanized and Natural-Select processes
is safe for humans, pets, livestock and wildlife.
Wood: "It's Good for Life."
When you choose long-lasting Wolmanized wood, you're
investing in the conservation of one of our most precious natural
resources. No other building material is more in balance with nature
than Wolmanized pressure-treated wood. In fact, treated wood lasts
for at least as long as it takes replacement lumber to be grown and
Wolmanized wood is the pressure-treated wood that's backed by a lifetime
limited warranty. So you get a lifetime of protection against fungal
decay and termites. And that means a lifetime of pleasure from creating
delightful projects that last.
Although Wolmanized pressure-treated lumbers' primary strength lies
in its resistant qualities, it also has other advantages:
- Wolmanized lumber is clean - paintable, if desired
- Wolmanized lumber is odor-free, oil-free and easy to handle
- Wolmanized lumber is so durable that it may well outlast conventional
hardware, therefore hot-dipped galvanized fasteners are recommended.
- Wolmanized lumber is inert; it should not affect shingles or
tar paper underlayment.
Brackett Brothers is a licensed distributor of Natural-Select
Natural-Select wood is made like traditional treated wood, in a
pressurized cylinder using a closed system that recycles excess
preservative for future use and releases no air pollutants, nor
wastewater. Since it is a patented product, only licensed producers
who follow stringent quality control measures make Natural-Select
Unlike plastics, steel, and concrete, Natural-Select wood's source
is a renewable resource grown on managed timberlands. It requires
less energy to produce than plastics and offers greater insulation
value; and, because of its lighter weight, preserved wood can often
be installed with lighter equipment which has less environmental
