The commitment this year to sell the new brown
coloured Pressure Treated Lumber. Sales in this
product have exceeded expectations! It looks as
the days of green coloured Pressure Treated lumber
In 2015, the company that makes prefinished pine for interior use has expanded its offering to include fir and cedar (see below).
Micro Pro Sienna Pressure Treated Lumber (Brown)
In 2013, a new product has entered the marketplace. Wood is treated with a micronized pigment under pressure that has a brown colour. Most people seem to like this colour better that the standard green colour. It also has the advantage of being less corrosive to fastners (like screws or joist hangars). Keep in mind that it will turn to a somewhat grey colour over time, just like other wood species.Also, some boards may have a green colour around the knots. This will fade away in the sun.Emmerson Lumber Limited converted to this new formla in 2014 and the consumer response has been terrific.

Joist Hanger Screws
Strong-Drive® SD Screw for Structural Connectors
Designed to replace nails in certain products, the load-rated SD screw has been tested and approved for use in many popular Simpson Strong-Tie® products. In certain applications screws are easier and more convenient to install than nails, and the single-fastener load values achieved by the SD screw exceed those of typical joist hanger nails, respectively. In addition, the galvanized coating makes the SD screw ideal for both interior and most exterior conditions.
The SD structural-connector screw features an optimized shank which is specifically designed to be compatible with the fastener holes in Simpson Strong-Tie connectors. The hex head virtually eliminates cam-out and helps avoid stripping of the head during installation. The sharp point of the screw enables fast starts, and the patented serrated threads reduce torque for improved drivability.
•Ideal for use in tight spaces where using a hammer is inconvenient •Optimized heat-treating for ductility and strength •Mechanically-galvanized coating meets ASTM B695 Class 55, is recommended for use with certain preservative-treated woods and is compliant with the 2006 International Residential Code® (R319.3) and the 2009 International Residential Code (R317.3) •1/4" hex drive •Head identification
