An obsession with quality-control. A passion for getting it right.
To produce borate treated lumber products, lumber and plywood are treated with a borate solution to ensure deep penetration. Borates (naturally occurring mineral salts) are forced into lumber through a vacuum and pressure process, leaving the finished product protected against termites — particularly the Formosan termite — as well as rot and decay.
Borate treating has been recognized for its effectiveness by the ICC-ES (International Code Council Evaluation Service), the country's most authoritative evaluation service. Most products are backed with a limited lifetime warranty.
