Jerry from Roseboro, N.c. 28382 writes,

Will Boracare work on salt treated floor joist under a house?

I had recent termite and moisture damage on a recently purchased house. I removed all damaged flooring structure and replaced it with salt treated floor joist. I am placing moisture barriers on surface of ground. I need to know if Boracare will penetrate this type of lumber. Thanks.


Bora-Care should only be applied to raw wood. It will not penetrate through any wood that has been pre-treated. Wood that is not painted, stained, sealed, pressure treated or any other pre-treatment on the woods surface.
