Sill Plate is a tough, versatile pressure-treated lumber. Like borate-treated lumber, it’s guaranteed to stop termites and prevent decay, plus it’s compatible with carbon steel (black iron) fasteners. But unlike borate-treated lumber, it requires no special handling. ProWood's sill plate lumber is both reliable and easy to work with, combining the advantage of several green certifications with the power to stand up to decades of pests and the elements. Sill plate MCA (micronized copper azole) treated lumber is approved for any aboveground exterior application. Whenever the situation calls for superior quality pressure-treated lumber, consider the product that can handle it all.


TimberTech has the perfect balance of quality and sustainability. TimberTech decking, railing and fencing products are an attractive, low-maintenance alternative to wood and a one-time purchase for most homeowners. Since TimberTech products will not splinter or warp and don’t require any staining or sealing, the wasteful cycle of repair and replacement typical of wood is dramatically reduced. TimberTech creates products with the environment in mind. No trees are cut down for the purpose of making TimberTech products. Their wood flour is recycled from the woodworking industry and keeps more than 100 million pounds of wood waste out of landfills each year. More than 28 million pounds of scrap product is reclaimed and put back into their manufacturing process each year, which saves even more wood and plastic waste from reaching landfills. TimberTech is a proud member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
