Bluwood touted as also 'green'

October 19, 2008|Lauren Beale

In case you've seen blue framing and were wondering, Bluwood is a relatively new wood product being used on a number of projects in San Diego County as well as by Brad Pitt on houses in New Orleans and now in several projects in L.A. County.

The Village at Northridge, a 240-unit assisted-living complex on Corbin Avenue, is using the product, which the maker says eliminates termites, fungus mold and rot and is "green." In fact, the company slogan is "Bluwood, the new green."

According to SC Bluwood Inc. of Carlsbad, Calif., the "blue" wood preservation process acts as a primer for paint and stain topcoats. You can check it out at Lowe's and other places.

No termites. Now that would be fantastic.
