what is the difference between prime and premium 2 x 4 x 8 ft studs ?

Asked by: jmsr
The difference is the amount of defects that can reduce the woods strength. e.g; the size and number of knots, whether the edges have any wanes in them, and the overall appearance of the wood. Hope this helps. Best, Smitty

Is the 2x4 lumber used by Home Depot Forrest Council Certified?

Asked by: ADP
If you mean FSC, Forest Sustainability Council, then no it is not, however a Home Depot store can get FSC lumber by contacting their Prodesk and they will contact the Volume Pricing Program associates in Atlanta who will provide cost and lead times for the store. If it is a LEED certified house, the lumber can only be sold at Home Depot store # 4006 in Oregon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $185 ever spent! Here is an example of what I did with $185 worth of this lumber. Yes, I did need to hand pick the pieces so they were strait and had minimal knots in certain places.....but it was WELL worth it. In the sunlight, the reds in this wood really come out.......amazing This lumber is Kiln Dried, so no worries about cupping as if I had used Pressure Treated. 2 coats of stain, and 2 coats of Thompson's Water Seal.....done THANK YOU HOME DEPOT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trying to figure out how this passed quality control... This review is really about poor quality control when i went to purchase a huge sum of these. I was immediately disappointed with Home Depot #2781 actually allowing Studs with Black Mold to be placed up for sale and ready for customer contact with there hands. I picked up several pieces of wood before realizing... wait that's mold! Inexcusable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality lumber I purchased these to make the frame for a gate a gate I was building. I like that the kiln dried lumber is really straight and will stay that way once it’s in place and braced by the fence brackets and pickets. I also like the light weight of the kiln dried lumber for this application. These are quality 2x4’s and will think of these first the next fence/gate project I have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stud wood is uneven I ordered 50 2x4x8 studs online to be pulled for later pickup in store. On pickup I rejected and replaced 6 of them for being warped. I have found in recent orders totaling well over 200 studs that the quality is uneven. Some studs are very light and some are very heavy. Some have huge end knots that fall out when nailing and there are knots that weaken the lateral strength of the wood. I really recommend not accepting any stud that looks like it is covered with crystals of any kind (they can appear white, yellow, orange, or clear). On these stud, some kind of deposit is left in the drying process and I find that these boards always split for several inches when nailing. I am sure that this uneven quality reflects more the quality of wood available in forests more than Home Depot handling. If you are ordering by the truckload for large projects, a few bad boards will be expected and they can be set aside to use where they don't matter such as for a scrap brace or short cuts. However, if you are needing every board to be useful, you really need to inspect your selection.
