HPM Building Supply treats lumber with Hi-Bor

Hi-Bor Treated Wood Safe for Schools

Hi-Bor® Brand Borate Pressure Treated Wood products were recently awarded the GreenGuard Children and Schools Certification from the GreenGuard Environmental Institute. It is the only borate treated wood product that has achieved this special certification. This GreenGuard Certification tells builders, architects, specifiers and home owners that Hi-Bor treated wood is low in VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and is suitable for use in sensitive environments such as schools, hospitals and residential construction.

At HPM we treat a majority of our lumber and ply with Hi-Bor at our Wood Protection Company in Keaukaha on Hawaii Island.

Structures built with Hi-bor® treated wood can also qualify for the Hi-bor 20-year warranty.

    WHY IS YOUR 2X6 T & G SPF PRODUCT NOT HI-BOR TREATED? CAN I REQUEST THAT BE DONE FOR AN UPCOMMING PROJECT? CAN I DO IT MYSELF?

      Thanks for your inquiry, Greg. Many customers prefer this product to not be treated, so the stock product is untreated. However, we certainly can treat it for you. I believe you’re in touch with Shannah who can assist with this.
