Gazebos FAQ: What Kind of Wood is Used?

FAQs gazebos pine lumber Wood


The pine lumber used in the construction of our gazebos, no matter what the shape, is a treated # 1 southern yellow pine that is kiln dried both before and after treatment. Kiln drying is crucial, as it virtually eliminates the chances of the lumber splitting or twisting.


To further protect your investment, the 4″ x 4″ support posts (which have a tendency to split if used as a single piece) are actually a combination of two 2″ x 4″s and a 1″ x 4″, similar to a laminate beam. This process ensures that there will be no unsightly cracks or splinters running up the main supports of the gazebo.
