Made possible through TruLast™ Technology, a proprietary process from Eastman Chemical Company, Perennial Wood is real wood made to endure. TruLast Technology permanently modifies the wood, providing a physical barrier throughout that’s warranted to protect against rot, decay and movement for 25 years. It is three times more stable than unmodified wood, resulting in less shrinking and swelling that cause bowing, cupping and warping without sacrificing the beauty of real wood.
