YellaWood SuperSelect® KDAT
Made from top grade lumber, YellaWood SuperSelect® brand KDAT products are engineered to provide a unique combination of beauty and strength. Contractors will enjoy working with a quality building product that has been kiln dried after treatment (KDAT), which not only makes it lighter and easier to work with, but also reduces the tendency of treated lumber to shrink, cup and warp. Homeowners appreciate the beauty afforded by small knots and being able to paint or stain their project without delay. Plus, it offers pressure-treated protection against rot, fungal decay and termite attack. Backed by a lifetime limited warranty.
