Using treated timber inside

Recommended Posts

I'm needing to source some 75 x 38mm timber to be used as a stud for a non-structural partition. The only timber I can source locally of this size is green treated.

 

Would there be any issues with using this? The merchants have several other carcassing timbers in other sizes, but it needs to be a 75mm stud.

 

I have read differing opinions on this through the wider web. Some say no difference. Others say nails degrade at a faster rate in treated timbers.

As above, get on with it … ohh, just don’t chew or eat it.
