Is it better to use treated lumber or regular wood in your construction project? Treated lumber has many advantages. It will resist both moisture and termites. Treated lumber does have chemicals that can be dangerous to health in certain conditions, but there are oils you can coat those boards with that will make the treated lumber safe.

If you have any wood that will be in contact with Mother Nature, treated lumber is your best choice, You always want to use treated boards when wood will be touching the ground. The ground creates moisture and will rot regular lumber. Treated boards will last much longer.
