EverWood Offers Maintenance-Free Polymer Coated Wrapped Timbers and Pilings
EverWood features a proprietary polymer wrapping system that provides environmentally friendly, Non-polluting timbers and piles for the Marine Market. This system of encasing wooden pilings and timbers in a watertight polymer system serves two primary purposes: Keep the good stuff in, and the bad stuff out – all with the ease of working with wood!
Marine Borer destruction in the U.S. alone causes billions of dollars of damage every year, but Marine Borers don’t stand a chance of getting into our piles and timbers that are wrapped in tension. Furthermore, the pressure treated wood won’t leach into our environments’ watershed which helps promote a ‘Green’ eco-system.Speak to a Representative About EverWood

How is EverWood made?
EverWood starts with the finest quality timbers and pilings. Unlike common marine grade timbers and pilings, EverWood will not leach harmful chemicals into the environment, because the wood is coated with a thick, opaque polyethylene skin. This also protects the timbers and pilings against weathering, rotting, and discoloring. Once the skin is applied, EverWood is ready to build with. Simply choose your color and get to work.
Who uses EverWood?
Anyone looking to build a marine structure that would normally use traditional treated timbers and pilings can benefit from EverWood. EverWood products are ideal to use as waler boards, stringers, caps and pilings.
Marine contractors love the ease and workability of the product, since it is no different than working with traditional wood. Homeowners love the look and the durability of EverWood. For years, the treated wood has been the weak point in the seawall.
Now, a completely synthetic solution is available! Engineers like to specify EverWood timbers and pilings because it gives their customers a solution that is not dependent on the short lifespan of traditional wood. Plus, they don’t have to reinvent the wheel since they are dealing with the strength numbers of wood!
What sizes of pilings and timbers in EverWood do you generally stock?
Listed below are the most common lengths and sizes that we keep in inventory. However, we are able to wrap just about any size timbers and piles that you may need:EP 8 in. dia. EP 10 in. dia. EP 12 in. dia. EP 14 in. dia. EW 2 x 12 EW 3 x 6 EW 3 x 8 EW 4 x 6 EW 6 x 6 EW 6 x 8 EW 8 x 8 EW 10 x 10
Is it better to wrap treated wood, or extrude over it?
Wrapping pressure treated wood, especially performed in tension, is the preferred way to provide a polymer coating to wood products. The bond of the polymer to the wood is secure and tight when wrapped. Often, using “extruded over” techniques, the plastic simply becomes a sleeve over the wood that has minimal to no bond to the wood.
Is the use of nails, screws or bolts harmful to the coating of EverWood?
Our plastic seals around all fasteners, screws and bolts as they are seated into the coating. Make sure the head of the fastener snugs tightly against the coating and your installation will be perfect. If the head of the fastener penetrates underneath the coating, the use of EverSeal may become necessary to patch the breach. EverSeal is a marine grade adhesive that serves well to create patches over small breaches that may occur from installation or handling. With bolts, you should use washers on both ends and avoid counter sinking the head of the bolt.
