    Does this material have structural qualities similar to Douglas fir? The application is for stringers and perhaps steps of an outdoor wooden garden stair requiring stringers of up to 20 ft. long, probably 4 inch dimension. If yes, how do I get pricing and technical information.


    • Mr. Kloke,

      TimberSIL has greater structural values than Douglas Fir. The species of wood TimberSIL processes, Southern Yellow Pine (SYP), is stronger and harder than Douglas Fir before we put the glass inside. The TimberSIL process increases those structural values, allowing you to increase spans.

      For pricing and availability please call (714) 223-1804 or e-mail:

    Can I swing by the warehouse to purchase TimberSil? I work so close and my husband is entirely convinced of your product.

    Sadly, I missed the Alt Expo in Sta Monica. Do you have a distributor here?

    I am almost sure our patio cover is infested with termites. A friend recommended I talk to you.Do you have any brochures w/prices. I realize it will vary. Thank you, Art

    We have a 85 unit apartment building in Torrance that has approx 250 each rafter tails that we would like to replace with a new roofing project scheduled for later in 2010. Do you make rafter tails?

    I’m looking to buy some 1x material to cover metal treads on a spiral staircase. What is the widest 1x stock you have and what is the cost per board foot? I’m looking for a lighter color wood, similar to pine. Does this take a clear coat finish?


    • We stock 1×4, 1×6 & 1×8. Yes TimberSIL does take a clear finish, however the wood does need to be sanded first. I recommend 40-60 grit, TimberSIL is very high on hardness level if you use a smoother grit you’ll be there all day.


  7. FYI; Just saw the latest episode of Ask This Old House. Roger Cook the landscape contractor build a 24’ by 4’ raised planter bed for a guy who’s bound to a wheelchair. The material he used was the glass infused 6”x6” timber. I’m pretty sure it’s a TimberSil product. He built the whole planter with this timber and looks great. I can’t wait to have a project that calls for TimberSil product. I’m dying to work with it.

    I also was just introduced to your products availability while watching This Old House.. its looks like just what I’ve been looking for.. a friend saw the same episode, and has a few projects lined up to use it on.. so we plan to team up.. now we just need to know where we can purchase it.. in Lodi, CA? We are interested in 6×6, 2×4, 2×6.. what lengths do you offer these in? Do you have a brochure.. price list.. also would be interested in a sample? Thanks.

    Does anyone have suggestions for a fairly non-toxic sealer for Timbersil?

    How does the cost compare with lumber?


    • There is lumber that is more expensive per piece than TimberSIL and there are others that are less per piece. To compare the price of TimberSIL fairly you have to factor in the added strength, which would require less pieces of wood used on the projects, the rot and insect resistant, the Class-A fire rating and the value of using a non toxic product on or around our your home.
      Contact us for current pricing. As far as I know, TimberSIL is the least expensive wood that resists fire and rot.

    I see some of the example projects use boards which were pre-cut, then fused w/ the glass ( It stated this was done for maximum rot resistance. This leads me to believe the glass is fused only to a certain depth into the wood, and cut ends have untreated exposed wood fibres.

    Can you provide details about glass impregnation and how cutting/machining the wood affects durability in an outdoor environment (e.g. buried fence posts, exposed fencing)?

    PS: great looking product – I’m hoping you assuage my concerns so I can buy a truckload for my new fence!


    • Todd, All the wood in these photos is TimberSIL except for the large glue-lam beams, because of the size and length require for the project the beams were not able to be made from one piece of wood. However you are correct, as with all wood preservation processes the protecting treatment can only perpetrate the wood’s surface so far. So, on this project all the corbeled ends on the 4×8’s were cut to length and shaped prior the glass impregnation process. On 2x material and smaller the glass penetrates throughout the boards, on larger sizes you should have them custom made or coat the ends with an epoxy wood hardener to effectively seal of the cut end.


  12. TimberSIL is wonderful.

    We are interested in building a swinging porch swing out of your product. Can you refer rest to someone who has designs and we would also like pricing information.

    Thank you

    Thinking about using your product to build a deck around a desert hot spring. How is product priced and how is it rated for use above and under hot water (access ramp, stairs into (earthworks) swimming hole)?
