Q&A Home

Karriem from New Haven Ct. writes,

I have raw unfinished 5/4 x 4 x 10 t&g fir flooring I'm gonna use on a covered porch.

Can I use Bora-Care in a troth to soak my boards to prevent them from rotting in the future? If so, how long should I wait to paint and install after soaking?


Bora-Care can be applied to raw wood and once it is completely dried can be painted or stained and sealed (especially if it is on wood outside). It should be applied as a spray or painted on the wood not soaked in a container. Did you want to treat an animal trough as well?
