Southern Pine Pressure Treatment

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sharon:
 
Only sill plates/ledgers which are in contact with concrete/masonry which are within 18" of dirt need to be pressure treated.  Be careful to use the new pressure treatment approved by code.  Also be careful to use galvanized hardware and nails into the P.T. wood.
 
I don't know about your moisture content question.
