is this product safe for use around a pool with bare feet????

can this lumber be used as flooring on the ground under a shed?

Asked by: pomicha
It can be used for a shed floor. However, it is not designed for direct ground contact. so it will need some type of frame (approved for "ground contact") under it. To clarify, there are two types of pressure treated lumber one is specifically rated for "ground contact", this is usually noted on the tag attached to end of the board.

how much gap should be between boards when laying premium pressure-treated lumber

how much gap should be between boards when laying premium pressure-treated lumber
Asked by: mark
No gap at all. This wood will shrink to leave a 1/4 to 3/8 gap.

When screwing the deck down, should you put a space between the boards?

Asked by: Foxygrandma
This is a wet wood/pressure treated, it shrinks as it cures. Butt it together when installed and you will get a nice 1/4 to 3/8 inch gap once it cures. Ventilation is important and the boards will open up rather quickly under the hot summer sun giving you the necessary ventilation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Planning and prep work needed first, then good results I used this wood to rebuild and expand a deck to about 420 sq ft. The wood had few knots and was reasonably straight. It's a bit overpriced in my estimation, but it will do the job and look reasonable it you take the following into consideration: Do not have this wood delivered if you can help it. From everything I've heard, you will be saddled with a lot of warped, bowed, knotty and otherwise deficient boards. Hand pick and inspect each board for quality before buying. This is not KDAT (wood that is dried after pressure treatment) lumber as some seem to think it is. KDAT lumber can been installed immediately after you buy it and then sealed/ stained or painted. This wood is KD19 before pressure treatment. That means you will get a huge variance in moisture content from board to board (up to 30% MC or even much more) when you pull it off the rack or have it delivered as there may be boards from many different lots . You will notice a difference in weight as you load them. The only way to prevent a huge issue with gaps and splitting after the wood is installed is to dry the boards first. Buy 5-10% more than what you need (depending on your confidence/experience level) and stack them in a manner that supports the boards to keep them from warping and allows even air flow around them. Buy or borrow a moisture meter (there are some as inexpensive as $20) and sample the boards as they dry (keep in mind that the drying process may take weeks or more depending on the climate). You will observe that some of the boards will crack and split as they dry- these boards should be returned later. Once you are in the 12% moisture content range you are ready to install the planks and then seal or stain them immediately after. You will be able to set the spacing as you wish without worrying about having large gaps grow later. Once you properly treat the wood with a quality sealant, you won't have to worry about cracking and splitting later (as long as the wood isn't subject to abuse.) So, in summary, a decent product that's a bit overpriced due to the prep work and lead time needed over the only slightly more expensive KDAT. If the additional time and work isn't worth it, go with KDAT lumber (if you can find it) or try some composite decking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful!!!! The weathershield lineof pressure treated products as a whole is AWFUL! I've built 4 decks of varying sizes from 8x10 to a 550 square feet with all weathersheild lumber. As a contractor, I've built many things outdoors and have used many different outdoor products. By far this is the worst lumber I have ever used. It splits and shrinks very fast, yes even the 6x6's. It leaves the deck looking ratty and worn very quickly. I will not use this product for any of my outdoor products ever. Dissatisfied customers are not fun to deal with, and it's hard to be proud of any type of project when it ends up looking like garbage within a few weeks, even days of completion. I have not had this problem with any other type of pressure treated product. I would give this product no stars if I could. I have seen kiln dried lumber last longer outdoors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from no knots but has other problems, would not buy it again. I would not use this again, granted it is almost knot free if you pick through the pile BUT #1 the board width is not consistant runs from 5 3/8" to 5 5/8" which really makes it tough to keep the runs looking nice #2 the inked on label and a crayon slash mark are 75% of the time on the bark side of the board which is the side that is supposed to go up. The ink penetrates the wood so you can't sand it off

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worthy of the name premium As with most wood decking some cracking may occur.I pre drilled all holes,screwed them in and the next day the boards are splitting already. Had 40 delivered and 13 of them were horrible,chipped,cracked from one end to the other. I went this this product after mold issues with composite but id rather deal with the pressure washing twice a year than this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WARPED & SHRANK! I installed these deck boards touching each other because i knew thew would shrink. i sealed it a few months later it looked ok. It really started shrinking when the weather turned warm. 10 months later, some have shrank up so bad there is 3/4" gap between them! I built a 1000 sq' curved deck. almost all of the ends have warped. it looks terrible, after all of my work i am so disgusted i don't even want to go out on the deck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Home Depot has the worst lumber BUYER BEWARE!!! We have built a deck with the standard and most recently with 5/4 IN. X 6 IN. X 16 FT. PREMIUM PRESSURE-TREATED LUMBER. This product was delivered extremely warped, cracked, split and several boards already had mold. we had to have Home Depot replace boards 3 times! Installing was difficult because of the inconsistencies, pre drilling made no difference, the wood splits anyway (we installed the wood while it was moist and not dry hoping to avoid splits). We will NEVER buy wood from Home Depot, there is no value since the quality is poor. This wood is supposed to be "premium" and pre-treated for water resistance, but our deck stopped beading water and is starting to mold (sunny location) in less than 2 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I renovated my deck last summer (doubled the size), and though I would have preferred to use cedar decking, it just wasn't in the budget. So, I decided to use these 'higher end' pressure treated deck boards. Although I was unable to seal the boards before winter hit (due the required drying time of the lumber and uncooperative weather), they should have held up a lot better than they did! These boards have been installed for less than one year, but they look like they've been exposed to the elements for five times that long, due to the cracks, splits and checks (flaking)! The old decking that I removed had been in place for fifteen years, and had only been sealed once (the year after it was installed) and half of those boards were in better shape than some of these new ones are! I am extremely disappointed with this product, and I most certainly will not use it again!
