What is Advance Guard®?

Advance Guard is lumber and plywood for interior use or above-ground protected applications that has been pressure treated with borate wood preservatives for protection against termites, carpenter ants, and fungal decay, including dry rot.

 

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. (See Important Information for limitations.) Advance Guard borate pressure treated plywood is recommended for wall sheathing, roof sheathing, and sub-floors, where not exposed to wetting conditions. As with untreated wood, Advance Guard borate pressure treated wood may be sawn, drilled, or routed with standard woodworking equipment.
