I would like to apply Bora-Care to the wood piers on my house.
The piers are 8 inches thick and were treated when originally installed 40 years ago. How many coats will I need? Can the piers be stained afterward? The house sits up on piers that are 10 feet tall.
You do not need two coats of Bora-Care unless the piers are more than 10 inches thick. You should mix at a ratio of 1 gallon of Bora-Care to 1 gallon of water. You can paint, stain, or seal after the Bora-Care has had at least 24 hours to dry.
