Preparing and treating your antique lumber is an important part of the restoration process. Benedict Antique Lumber and Stone treats authentic lumber with a boric acid solution. The boric acid solution acts as an insecticide and a fungicide for the wood. This process helps to prevent and possibly guarantees that your lumber will not be infected with mold or insects.
Reclaiming antique lumber and stone is ultimately labor intensive.
