Perennial Wood is the solution. It is real wood that has been modified with TruLast™ Technology to stand up to the elements, resisting changes from moisture and holding its shape for decades. Best of all, the modification process does not affect the wood’s appearance. It’s been found to rival teak in both beauty and performance. Now, you can offer your clients a beautiful, U.S.-sourced, real wood material with fewer drawbacks for exterior applications.
Preserving Authenticity of Historic Properties
Because Perennial Wood is real wood and the TruLast Technology process does not leave behind any toxic substances in the wood, Perennial Wood is well-suited for historic renovations/restorations. Historical societies and associations, and architectural design boards of historical districts support the use of Perennial Wood to preserve the authenticity and character of vintage properties.
Supporting Sustainable Building Practices
Manufactured by Eastman, Perennial Wood can contribute to your pursuit of industry certifications and ratings, and green building efforts. It is sourced from U.S. Southern pine, and processed, milled and finished in the Southeast — eliminating the need for shipping wood from offshore sources. Because Perennial Wood lasts longer and requires less frequent replacement than unmodified wood, it results in less material disposal over the long term. Perennial Wood contributes to as many as 4 point categories in USGBC’s LEED certifications.
Eastman is committed to finding sustainable business opportunities within the diverse markets and geographies it serves. We are proud to have been named a 2012 Energy Star Partner of the Year.
