Pressure treated T1-11 pricing

We're planning on using pressure treated T1-11 panels for the interior of a screened porch, can anyone tell me an approximate ball-park price I should expect to pay for a 4'x8' sheet ? Just talked to 84 lumber and the local lowes and neither of them have it p.t. If there is anyone out there who knows where to get it in the Philly region let me know.

Cheers

Cool

Pressure-treated lumber and plywood (such as T1-11) usually run about 30% higher than untreated.
You should be able to find it. Just call around to building supply houses.
Good Luck!

Thanks for the info Mike. I've called about a dozen lumber supply places in the area and none of them stock p.t. T1-11. I had assumed that the material that is already in my porch, and holding up well was p.t., but perhaps it is just stained. Seems like very difficult material to find !

You can use exterior-grade untreated T1-11 as long as you keep it sealed or painted, especially if your porch has a roof.

T1-11

Just supervised the building of a picnic shelter our Rotary built in the City Park here in Louisa. We used exterior grade T1-11 on gable ends and 6x6 pressure treated posts. Keep sealed or painted, and you should be fine. I was never aware that T1-11 came pressure treated.

I used to work at a Weyerhaeuser mill complex in NC over 20 years ago. The mill complex included a plywood plant that made T1-11 in its product mix and it had a pressure-treating plant next door to it.
They pressure-treated regular plywood and T1-11 back then, along with various sizes of beams and lumber.
I also built a 150' pier and boathouse in 1998, and I used 4'X8' pressure-treated T1-11 for the boathouse siding.
I assumed that it was still available.
Mike
