Drying of wood or timber reduces its moisture content. Traditionally wood was dried using air but is also dried using a kiln. When a Kiln is used for drying purpose, the resulting product is known as kiln-dried timber or lumber. This method speeds up the drying process. When timber is dried in a kiln, the result is a higher quality product. Any infestation of insects is also eliminated. As this is a controlled process, it is cost-effective and does not display any distortion or drying stresses. Kiln-dried timber is very dry and stable and therefore recommended for all kind of building projects.
