Quality lumber to guarantee the success of your projects.
DreamWood: Exclusively at L. Villeneuve & Cie (1973) Ltd.
Groupe Lebel, a major Quebec manufacturer of building materials, recently introduced a completely ecological exterior lumber product. These grey pine planks are golden brown in colour, resembling the red cedar of Western Canada, and feature two characteristics that are of utmost importance: they are resistant to the rigors of our climate (they don’t crack or warp, and are rot resistant), and they do not contain any added chemical products.
A robust ecological product
These exceptional characteristics are obtained by firing the wood at high temperatures for several hours in order to extract as much moisture as possible, without adding any chemicals. The lumber is then put into a moulding machine in order to give it a finish that rivals the beauty of cabinetry wood.
Highly resistant to rotting and cracking
A number of tests conducted in an independent laboratory have demonstrated that DreamWood is as resistant to rot as chemically treated wood or Western red cedar. This same laboratory also confirms that the characteristics of DreamWood make it more resistant to warping and cracking than any other exterior lumber. In terms of its ability to hold nails, DreamWood compares favourably to other products that are available on the market. DreamWood – this wood really is a dream!
