You have gone to great lengths to get every detail right in your new post frame home. You chose the right company for the design and to provide the plans and materials, the right finishes and colors. But have you chosen the right structural wood components? Are they protected from the threat of fungus, rot and termites? If not, they should be, because these very real threats, if ignored, can put your entire investment at risk.
The solution is BluWood, lumber treated with a unique, two-product technology called Perfect Barrier System. BluWood components are protected against the devastating consequences to wood of fungal and termite infestation. Before you build, make sure to ask about the use of BluWood for all framing lumber, trusses and sheathing components.
You know the enemy. Now you know how to protect against it. Given the choice wouldn’t you choose to be protected?
BLUWOOD is the name given to a family of wood frame building components with a proprietary factory applied, two-part coating technology.
The first part of this technology is an Infusion-Film which forms a water-repellent semi vapor permeable film interlocking with the wood fibers to provide controlled topical and subsurface moisture absorption. The Infusion Film is also specially formulated to resist mold growth on the cured surface of the film.
The second part of this technology is the Perfect Barrier DOT Wood Preservative, a proven fungicide and insecticide which provides protection from rot fungi and wood ingesting insects, including termites.
Today’s standard building code requirements only specify a very small amount of lumber used in a post frame building to be pressure preservative treated against rot fungi and wood ingesting insects. Usually just the columns which are embedded in the ground, and the skirt or grade board (read more here: https://www.hansenpolebuildings.com/2013/08/composite-grade-board/).
BLUWOOD provides the proactive pole building buyer the ability to have all of the above ground wood framing components protected against the damaging effects of rot fungi and wood ingesting insects; mold fungus growth; as well as limiting uncontrolled moisture absorption.
BLUWOOD components are coated at a BluWood USA authorized and licensed coating application facility. BLUWOOD wood framing components are delivered to the job-site by the suppliers, ready to be installed.
BLUWOOD’s distinctive color is visible assurance the complete surface of processed wood components have been coated with BLUWOOD’s two-part wood protection technology. The factory applied process eliminates possible scheduling conflicts, inconsistent application and incomplete coverage associated with on-site treatments offering less protection.
BLUWOOD’s protective shield has a Lifetime Limited transferable warranty.
