Marine Construction Piling, Timber & Lumber. Our pilings are selected for straightness, uniformity and peeled clean for appearance. We inventory a large stock of Southern Yellow Pine pilings in various Butt and Tip sizes such as 8”, 9”, 10”, 12” Butt Natural Taper, 8”Tops, Class B and Class A piles in accordance with ASTM standards and specifications treated CCA, CCA and CCA.

Timber Resources supplies a full line of rough and dressed stringers and framing lumber for piers, docks and marine projects. Timber Bulkheads and Jetties Our marine pilings and timbers are CCA pressure treated for the construction of salt or brackish water bulkheads and jetties. American Pole & Timber supplies all the pier and dock materials you need. We also custom drill and cut pieces to your specifications. Construction. Hire an experienced contractor to build your pier or dock. We may be able to connect you with an experienced pier and dock builder in your area.

Marine Products. Let Treated Lumber Outlet (TLO) be your source for Marine Products in Hampton Roads, Richmond and the Outer Banks. TLO has a wide selection of Marine products for building a boardwalk, pier, dock or seawall, including pressure treated wood for the harsh saltwater environment, brackish or fresh water on: City Line Road, Building #4, Newport News, , VA. construction material. Earth-Friendly Access Southern Pine provides a warm, natural look that blends beautifully with the sur-rounding landscape. To meet today’s envi-ronmental requirements, designers often span wetland areas with timber bridges and elevated wood boardwalks. Nature trails also lend themselves to timber walk-.
