ProWood Borate treated, termited-protected lumber


Designed for interiors. Tough enough for sill plates. Guaranteed for life.

Borate products are versatile, durable and reliable. They include solid wood, such as lumber and plywood. Borate treated lumber is compatible with the same fasteners used for untreated wood — carbon steel, galvanized steel, copper and silicon bronze — so there's no need to spend extra on special fasteners. We're confident ProWood® Borate will perform, and that's why it's backed with a lifetime limited warranty against termites and rot.

ProWood Borate treated lumber must be protected from rain by covering or storing under a shelter and elevating the material above the ground to allow for air circulation. View and download our Borate safe handling instructions.
