Allegany manufactures kiln dried products.  This means that we dry our materials in big Kilns, before we mill them.  We use a slow drying method, to draw moisture out of our logs so that there is less shrinkage, warping or twisting.  This also kills any fungus or bugs that the lumber may have.  We kiln dry for 8 to 10 weeks, which is longer than any other company that we know of.  We do this to produce a better quality product - for you and for us.
