Wood U

Montreal, Canada

Jardin de Ville

Wood U, a company newly-founded by young entrepreneurs, enters the world of decking with an unparalleled product in America. 


Montreal, Canada, 2014-04-21 -

The wood species of red oak and white ash benefit from a patented German technology, enabling the wooden slats to be locked-in and giving it a high level of stability. Several years have been dedicated to finding the perfect temperature for cooking, in order to provide and ensure a class-leading product. Together, these key factors enable Wood U to offer a remarkable product for which its uses are endless.


Over the last decade, heat-treated wood has been tainted with a negative image because the manufacturers were not using the appropriate wood types or heating them at the right temperatures. The result of such a process, despite considerable financial outflow, will not be beneficial. Not only are the essences critical when discussing heat-treated wood, but the treatment process itself is the cornerstone of the final product.

Why should Wood U be trusted? Their products are certified by Europe’s strictest standards regarding stability, sustainability, weatherproofing, and durability against insects, parasites, mould and fungi (Standards R302, MOS, MOE, EN 113). Furthermore, the rainforests are preserved in their entirety due to the fact that the chosen wood as well as its transformative process are completely ecological. It is therefore a great alternative to IPE wood. In addition, one of the most interesting competitive advantages for the consumer is its quality-to-price ratio.

When the wood comes out of the oven, it has a fairly dark hue and is accentuated by a red-ish pigmentation, as a result of the essence of the red oak. In the sun, the wood will change to a grey patina (much like Teak), giving it a weathered, rustic look. The wood also has a brushed finish which allows any water-based sealant to seep inside the wood, maintaining the desired hue and extending its protection.

Advantages for choosing Wood U and its heat-treated wood products:

-    An impressive stability
-    No warping or distortion
-    An excellent 4-season durability
-    A simple installation with its aluminum rail system
-    A 35-year warranty

It is possible to see different applications of Wood U products in Jardin de Ville’s various showrooms.
