Product Overview

Woodguard lumber is engineered to last by combining the strength of structural lumber with a low maintenance high-tech, permanent, polymer coating. Woodguard lumber is treated to prevent rot and insect damage above and below ground level while making the wood core resistant to the warping, twisting and splitting. Woodguard lumber is much stronger than unreinforced vinyl rails and will not become brittle in cold weather. Woodguard structural lumber has many versatile uses such as; fence rails, horse fence rails, patio cover joist, flexible horse top rails, build gates, vinyl or plastic lattice rails, deck railing, landscaping retaining wall lumber, planter boxes, play structures, outdoor furniture to name a few.
  • May install immediately no treatment drying time needed
  • Durable non PVC coating increases the strength of the lumber
  • Never needs painting or staining
  • Polymer coating UV-stabilized to withstand harsh sun and temperature ranges from -40°F to 180°F without becoming brittle or breaking down
  • Cuts to length and fastens like wood using standard tools and fasteners
  • Nontoxic borate treatment of wood core will not cause nail and screw corrosion
  • Nontoxic borate treatment and polymer coating is safe for children, pets and earth
  • Polymer coating keeps lumber splinter free
  • 20-years replacement warranty against rot, termites, cracking, peeling and blistering
  • Removable caps are included

You can take the caps off and then cut to length and put the caps back on. In my case I cut to length then sealed around the joins with a black silicone sealant.

Our testing shows that termites do not consume the plastic coating and as a backup measure we treat the lumber with borates which are very effective against subterranean termites.

This was the perfect solution to replacing my handrails. I looked at several DIY options that I found online but was never satisfied because of the high cost. When I stumbled across these poly coated 2x4's I knew I found what I was looking for.

Would be great if each 2x4 by 8’ came with at least 2 more end caps...in case you cut the board. Or...make extra end caps available for sale separately.

Hey Bob, I cannot believe the coincidence, I too just received my order and was disappointed by them being wrapped instead of coated. The problem for me comes with the brackets that are only 1.52". The spec sheet says these are 1.56" but they actually are 1.65" (the caps are 1.75"). I was also surprised how glossy the material is. 220 grit sandpaper leaves them looking scratchy, maybe I will try some 1000, or maybe I should assume that will fade a little. Still adapting to the online age,.. Calculating,... Calculating,...

So "Polymer Coated" left me to believe this was some sort of painted on, or dipped coating that was adhered to the wood. This was an incorrect assumption on my part. These are your basic pressure treated 2x's that have a fairly thick "shrink wrap" type of plastic sleeve. However, the wrap is not adhered to the wood. This could be significant (as it was to me) for anybody wishing to cut through the coating for whatever reason. I intended to route a groove the entire length of the board to install LED strip lighting, but there would be nothing holding the wrap in place if I did so. I would also be concerned about any vertical installation, where water could get down between the wrap and the wood. It would take a very long time to dry out, and while treated, would still shorten the life span. Having said all of that, there is nothing wrong with this product, I would buy it again, and I would recommend it... just wanted to inform those that might make the same assumptions I did.
