Kiln Drying Services
Vacuum Kiln Drying
We are one of the few retailers in the Pennsylvania / Maryland region that offers drying services with a state-of-the-art vacuum kiln.
Our vacuum kilns can take green lumber and dry it to single digit moisture readings in as little as 7-10 days using less heat than a conventional dehumidification kiln. The reduced heat and moisture draw created from the vacuum results in wood that is stable and vibrant.
Thick lumber and slabs over 8/4(2") should be properly air dried for 3-4 months per inch of thickness. This will save significant time and cost in the kiln
