Southern Yellow Pine is excellent for joists and rafters due to its strength characteristics. SYP is carefully dried and stabilized to ensure they maintain the right moisture content to resist shrinking, bowing and warping. It’s ideal for pressure treating, light frame construction, general utility framing, studs, rafters and floor and roof trusses for single and multi-family homes.
- Mold growth may occur on building products, including untreated and treated wood; to remove mold from a treated wood surface, mild soap and water is recommended
- To avoid pitting or other unwanted results, UFP-treated wood should not be encased, sealed or wrapped with aluminum products where trapped moisture or water can occur
- Aluminum contact is not recommended when UFP-treated wood products are immersed in water or are subject to frequent and prolonged wetting or other severe exposure conditions; in such cases, a moisture resistant protective barrier should be placed between the aluminum products and UFP-treated wood
