Treated wood combines all the advantages of a natural and affordable solution, with top-of-the-line style and an irreproachable level of sustainability. Whether it’s treated with alkaline copper quaternary (ACQ), copper azole (CA) or micronized copper azole (MCA), factory-treated wood is an economical solution, which doesn’t sacrifice its noble and rich appearance in the slightest.
That’s why treated wood is often the first choice of homeowners, who entrust the Patio de ville team with its selection and installation, everywhere in the greater Montreal area, including the South and North Shores.
This solution is also highly regarded for commercial and recreational purposes, as well as for several infrastructure and public space projects (parks, walkways, alleys, platforms, etc.). While certain lines contain a greater number of chemical components, current technologies and methods are moving toward a more eco-friendly approach, which encourages a sizeable reduction in the environmental footprint. Treated wood materials do very well in water, which facilitates the preservation of an oft-desired natural cachet, in particular for the construction of a floating dock.

In a nutshell
Treated wood is a timeless classic, which has been elegantly proving its worth for decades. A cost-effective solution that, in the eyes of many, amounts to the best of both worlds. Once upon a time recognizable by its greenish tint, we can now identify it thanks to its more rusty red hue, giving it a more natural look from the get-go.
Treated wood is affordable and derived from a renewable resource, while the material’s very nature, paired with periodic maintenance, encourages its durability and minimizes its environmental footprint.
