FrameGuard ® Total Termite, Mold, and Moisture Prevention

You have gone to great lengths to get every detail right in your new home. You chose the right architect, the right builder, 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 living investment at risk.

FrameGuard® Total is a factory-applied, two-part coating technology designed to increase the durability of your home. The FrameGuard® Total coating contains a blend of anti-mold chemicals and borate technology that alleviates problems from mold, termites, and fungi.

Fungus, Mold, and Termite Protection

The organic compounds remain close to the surface to provide protection against mold; moldicides inhibit the enzymes' ability to break down the wood and consume sugars and starches needed for mold growth. Meanwhile, the borate component penetrates deep into the wood to provide protection against both decay and insects, including Formosan termites.

FrameGuard® Total is a green product for its exceptional durability and ability to reduce pesticide treatments. It was a 2007 NAHB Green Building Award winner and is GreenSpec listed. The components of the FrameGuard® Total chemical are all found in everyday products such as crayons, food, lotions, and cosmetics.

Today's standard building codes require only a small amount of lumber to be treated against rot, fungi, and wood ingesting insects. FrameGuard® Total provides the proactive homeowner the ability to have all of the above-ground wood framing components protected against the damaging effects of termites, mold, and fungal decay.

FrameGuard® Total's green color is visible assurance that the complete surface of processed wood components have been coated. The factory application process eliminates possible scheduling conflicts, inconsistent application, or incomplete coverage associated with on-site treatments.

FrameGuard® Total is backed by a competitive limited warranty.
