I tested and worked as it should. Installs with ease
It protects your floor and ceiling joists and assemblies by delaying the damage fire may cause to your property. It could give you up to 1 hr of protection against fire with the right assembly. This is not fireproof. It is a retardant that delays the flames from growing or expanding to unfinished wood. I highly recommend it.
Lumber Guard is easy to use and does what it says it does. Customer service was great to make sure I ordered the right product for my purpose and shipping was fast.
Easy to apply, no odor, and the wood accepts normal primer and paint afterwards. I'm using this for wood paneling on an attic cathedral ceiling. Getting full sheets of drywall up the narrow attic stairs would be impossible, so I am fireproofing the wood paneling before fastening on top of foam board insulation in order to meet code. This was the perfect solution.
Purchase & Delivery fast and easy. Fast and easy to apply, works as advertised.
