Termites, decay fungi and other wood destroying organisms cause billions of dollars in damage to homes every year. However, wood structural systems built with Advance Guard® Borate Pressure Treated Wood Products have long-term protection that is a step in quality construction. Builders can depend on Advance Guard products to set them apart from their competitors and to provide to their customers what pre-existing homes can never provide–long lasting, built-in protection against termites, including Formosan termites, fungal decay and many other wood destroying organisms. An additional benefit is that walls built with borate pressure treated wood limit populations of cockroaches and ants that may live in the wall systems.
Advance Guard® Borate Pressure Treated Lumber is recommended for sill plate, furring strips, joists, studs, roof trusses, blocking, rafters, beams, and other framing applications. Advance Guard® Borate Pressure Treated Lumber is also recommended for fascia, trim, and miscellaneous wood applications, when properly protected from the weather (refer to limitations).
Advance Guard® Borate Pressure Treated Plywood is recommended for wall sheathing, roof sheathing, and sub-floors, where not exposed to wetting conditions.
Advance Guard® Pressure Treated Wood is accepted by the IBC and IRC under AWPA-C31 and National Evaluation Report NER 648. It may be used for above ground sill plates and other interior, above ground applications as required by the IBC and IRC.
