A real A hole runs this company. If he didn't have money and viagra to run around with [censored]s he'd be considered white trash. It's amazing how money can turn a piece of Sh_t into someone important in this society. Decent People... Beware of this CEO! He is the meanest most arrogant A Hole in the world. Hopefully soon he will get what he has coming to him

    Absolutely true on every point.
    A terrible product.
    Sadly the building material's often pushed into the construction industry prove to be inferior a short time after introduction.

    I built a deck with yellawood in October 2010 and it started rotting two years later. I have had it painted three times.I had some boards replaced in July 2017 but now as of April 2021 All of my boards are rotten. The yellow wood rep came out in f2018 and offered to replace a few boards but I declined since all of the lumber was beginning to crack and rot.I have had a lawyer look at this pier three times and four different contractors look at the problem and all agree that the boards need to be replaced.I may have to sue the company if they do not do the right thing. I am just sick that I spent a lot of money trusting the company to sell a good product.

    Our deck is 11 years old and is falling i from rotted wood. I have a house in another city and it was built in 1995. It still looks new and not one piece rotten. I had knee replacement in July. Two months to the day I walked out on the deck and my knee went thru the deck. I have had continue pain since last Thursday. This wood is the worse. Do not buy it.

    The Yella Wood on my little back porch was rotting in only two years of being built. I have untreated wood outside that has lasted much longer than that The stuff is crap. I asked a man about it that builds decks and boat docks and he said they won't use it, stay away from it.

    In this case I think the company earned it's bad name. Not aware of the owner's personality and proclivities and really don't car about them. The fact is their decking and lumber products failed prematurely. Very prematurely.

    Wish I would have saw this before using the Yella Wood products. What should have been a one and done project now needs to be done over due to their inferior products. Their pressure treated pine lasted several years and then rotted. Older portions of my deck were built prior to this and using a different product. That portion is still like new. All decking was sealed and stained yearly so the the premature failure of the Yella Wood leads me to suspect the pressure treatment process was insufficient. In thirty plus years as a homeowner and deck builder this is the first time I have ever had this happen to a deck I built using pressure treated lumber.

    I am a bit leery when I read complaints. I wonder if it could possibly be a competitor trying to give a company a bad name.

    @koolkath58 Believe me, this wood is crap. I built my mother a back deck in 2010 and it is completely rotten. My dad built an upstairs deck out of the green treated in 1987 that is in better shape. I built my mother a wood deck out of Yellawood in 2014 before I realized what crap it was and back in September of 2020, I had to replace 5 rotted decking boards, 10 spindles, and 2 4x4 posts. The whole deck needed to be redone but she didn't have the money. Now the price of lumber has skyrocketed. She has since passed and I am honestly thinking of just tearing it down back to the concrete porch stoop just so the deck doesn't detract from the sale of the house. Believe these stories. They are absolutely true. I'll never use this garbage product again.

    @koolkath58 I doubt that; I'm having to replace 40 ft. of wheel-chair ramp because my 5 year old Yellawood is disintegrating. I understand the lumberyard that sold the material now refuses to stock Yellawood because there have been so many complaints like mine. They make the lumberyard look bad because they were selling it.

    @Tw77 Do you still have the yella wood holding up your roof? Or did you have to replace the wood?

    I paid $2.57 more per 2x6x12 from Owen Lumber for Yella Wood than I could have bought treated lumber from Lowe's. Within two weeks the boards that were tightly spaced upon installation had half in gaps in them. Worse than that was the cracking. I have boards with one eighth inch wide cracks in them for the entire length of the board and some are split all the way through the thickness of the 2x6. When I complained a sales rep from both Yella Wood and Owen Lumber came to my house to see my new deck. The first thing out of their mouths was "that's what wood does". Then I showed them the two satellite decks (off of bedrooms) that I had redone a year ago with lumber from Lowe's that still look great. The Owen Lumber rep offered to send out a dozen or so replacement boards but stated that he could not guarantee that the replacement boards would not crack in the same way and possibly even worse. What a lousy product.

    @koolkath58 That is always what they ask to avoid responsibility for their crap product. It is a copout. I have a deck that was built in 1987 out of the green stuff that is nearing its life expectancy which they said when it was bought was 25 years. The Yellawood was done in 5 years.
