thermal wood isnt readily availble here. its been shown on a couple renovations shows because the manufacturer is donating it to get it more exposure to the masses.. i have yet to see it any of hte big box stores or lumberyards.. similarly blue wood is shown on all the canadian made reno shows but to get it locally you have to special order it plus considering the cost ive yet to see it in use.. and the labour is more because the end cuts should be sealed.. which is what should be done with pt or cedar.. just clear pentox as opposed to green or soft green end cut
