Borate Treated Lumber

Babb Lumber produces environmentally-safe borate treated lumber for indoor use and for protected outdoor use. Borate treatment protects against termite and wood-destroying fungal attack.

Our borate treatment process is a standard pressure treating process using high pressure to drive the borates throughout the interior of the wood. This process is more effective and longer lasting than brush-on, dip, or spray applications that coat only the surface of the wood. There are no shortcuts to effective wood treatment.

Note that borate treated lumber should not be used for direct ground contact.
