Likewise, people ask, are there different types of pressure treated wood?
There are two types of treated wood: preservative-treated wood and pressure-preservative-treated wood (pressure treated lumber). One common misconception is that treated wood is more resistant to water, but that's not true. Treated wood will soak up just as much water as non-treated wood.
Likewise, what is the best grade of lumber? FAS is the highest grade of hardwood lumber. FAS 1-Face (abbreviation: F1F): A “Select” piece of lumber which is six inches and wider. Select: A No. 1 Common piece of lumber (the poorer side of the wood piece is assigned as No.

Is pressure treated lumber weaker?
Pressure treating does make wood rot resistant. But — it doesn't make wood water resistant. Pressure treated wood still soaks and looses moisture.
