Carcassing timber (often called rough sawn timber or structural timber) is the ideal choice for structural work.
This type of wood is easily identified by its green hue, which is caused by the pressure treatment it is given. Over time, this colour changes to brown or grey.
This timber is strong and durable, meaning if you need something that can support a load-bearing weight, carcassing timber is the wood for the job.
What is carcassing timber?
Treated carcassing timber is a softwood that has been pressure treated and kiln dried. The pressure treatment makes the wood even more durable and protects it from fungal and insect attacks, while kiln drying reduces the moisture content.
As wood that contains too much moisture is prone to shrinkage and splitting, kiln drying makes carcassing timber a more reliable choice for your construction projects.

Yes you can! Painting treated timber wood will not only help you achieve your ideal aesthetic but also gives the wood an additional layer of protection, which is something you want. You must be careful thoe.
Most treated timber is still “wet” from the treatment and needs time for the chemicals in the wood to settle and dry. You will notice, the wood is heavy and will still feel damp to the touch. If primer or paint is added to it at this point, there is every likelihood that it will be rejected by the water-based chemicals that are still working their way through the wood.
It is important to permit the timber to dry out fully before attempting to add paint or primer. This can be a lengthy process and may even take up to a few weeks depending on where the wood is stored. If there is too much heat and direct sunlight, this can cause the treated timber to warp instead of dry out. Damp conditions can also prolong the drying-out period.
There are a few way to tell that timber has been pressure treated. The main one is that it should be labelled with a stamp.
The second way to look if its been treated is by the colour. It will have a slight green tinge to the wood.
The best protect the wood from cracking or turning grey is to apply a clear water repellent sealer, satin or paint.
