TOP 10 QUESTIONS FOR YOUR BUILDER
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING CONSTRUCTION
1. Does the framing lumber you use ever contain mold or excessive moisture?
2. Can you (or your lumber company) guarantee there will be no mold issues in my walls for at least 10 years?
3. Could there be a termite infestation in the lumber before you cover it with drywall?
4. Does the lumber you use contain greater than 19% moisture content? How do you know?
5. Does wood rot in my lumber mean I could have to rebuild my entire house?
If so, at what percent is the structural integrity of my home compromised?
6. Do i-joists and trusses really collapse faster in a fire than solid lumber?
7. In the event of a leak or a flood - what happens to the lumber inside my walls?
Do I have to rebuild?
8. Are homes you build exposed to bad weather and rain during construction?
9. How does rain (during construction) affect the longevity and safety of my home?
10. Is the lumber you build with protected from mold, wood-rot, termites or fire?
Can it control moisture? What would you say if I told you there was a product like this available now?
NO FAMILY LEFT BEHIND
HERITAGE BUILDING COMPANY CHOOSES ECO RED SHIELD™
Our friends at Heritage Building understand the importance of building homes the right way from the start - with wood protected from mold, wood-rot, fire, and termites inside every home they build. This project is underway in Chula Vista, CA.
NO CODE FOR THIS BLACK MOLD?
This lumber has been acceptable to contractors and even building officials for years because the removal of it has never been written into any code. At Eco Building Products we are establishing a new industry standard for building with lumber and our recent GREENGUARD certification proves it.
TERMITE PROBLEM PREDICTED TO GET WORSE
Termites are a destructive urban pest, but new studies suggest the problem will get even worse with the expanding population density of our cities. Last year in California alone, termites consumed a billion board feet of lumber - that’s enough lumber to build a wall 1' wide x 17 ' high wall starting from the Oregon border all the way to the Mexican border.
ECO RED SHIELD™ FOR PEACE OF MIND
Green lumber doesn't meet California Green Building Codes. Stronger regulations are being enforced now with green lumber issues related to moisture content. Lumber cannot exceed 19% moisture. Don't get caught in the delays - use Eco Red Shield™ Protected Lumber that has unrivaled protection against fire, mold, termites, woodrot and moisture control.
