Hassell Free Exports, Inc. exports basic building lumber and specialty wood to homeowners and builders throughout the Caribbean.
One type of wood that is commonly used in Caribbean home building is pressure treated wood. Pressure treated wood has been used for over 70 years and is one of the most used building materials. Pressure treated lumber is typically a softwood lumber, such as southern yellow pine, that has been chemically treated to resist rot, decay and termites. The result is an exterior-grade wood that’s ideal for framing, decks and fences. Pressure treated wood is treated two ways, one for wood that will not once in contact with the ground, and the other for wood, such as posts, that require ground contact.
In addition to pressure treated wood, we also export plywood, yard and structural lumber in whatever size your building project requires. Plywood comes in a variety of grades, depending upon your intended use. Common yard lumber is suitable for construction and utility purposes, and is graded using a number classification. Structural lumber is heavily used in construction for finish work.
We also offer a wide selection of hardwoods to choose from. Hardwood lumber is processed from deciduous trees. Hardwoods are slower growing than softwoods and are used for a variety of purposes in homes. Cedar and cypress are beautiful and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Other hardwoods that add beauty to your home are teak, birch, oak, maple, mahogany, hickory, rosewood, beech, white pine, Brazilian cherry, tigerwood and a multitude of other exotic woods.
