What are the Advantages of Pressure Washing Reclaimed Timbers and Lumber?

Aug 21, 2013

The above photos help illustrate some potential advantages of pressure washing reclaimed timbers and lumber.  The photo on the left shows some 12" x 12" timbers reclaimed from a California construction project.  The photo on the right shows 12" x 12" timbers from the same source which have been pressure washed.  Pressure washing can help to:

  1. Clean up old timbers and lumber;
  2. Bring out nice brown tones in the materials that are pressure washed; and
  3. Increase color consistency in a timber/lumber package.
