after the completion of your shell construction. You
must apply the wood finish according to the manufacturer's

can be brush or spray applied.
When spraying, be sure

coverage. You should also use tarps or plastic to cover
any landscaping which may be affected during the application

the ground, etc.). Areas which are protected by porches
or broad roof overhangs may only require a light coating.

applications should be made every three (3) years thereafter,

referred to as 'blooming'. Occasionally, some of the
borate salts used in our pressure-treating process crystallize
