Customer Questions & Answers

Is the size a true six by six?

Is the size a true six by six?
Asked by: Tom
All finished dimensional lumber in the USA is 1/2 inch smaller than the listed size on each dimension. In this case, a finished 6x6 is actual size 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" (other examples a 2x4 is 1-1/2" x 3-1/2", a 2 x 10 is 1-1/2" x 9-1/2", a 4x4 is 3-1/2" x 3-1/2"). The lengths are true to size meaning a 8-foot board is actually 8 feet long and a 12-foot board is actually 12-feet long). Any smooth finished board will follow this "deduct 1/2 inch" rule. The exception to this rule is rough sawn lumber, which is NOT typically sold at The Home Depot. Rough sawn boards are typically used in custom log and wood homes and are sold by speciality lumber yards. Rough sawn boards are true to size meaning a rough-sawn 6x6 is actually 6" x 6", but this type of boards are rarely used outside the log home business or an occasional outdoor structure where the rustic look is appealing.

Asked by: Keitho
Yes, you could. It's a heavy and pricey option for decking. You might consider giving up a little thickness and gaining some width. 4" by 6", maybe?

How many of the 6 by 6 by 8 inch timbers would I need to constructed a retainer wall that's 16 ft. wide 80 ft. long

And 5 1/2 ft deep
Asked by: Lotus
350, the calculation is pretty easy each 6x6 is 5-1/2" tall so your wall will be 35 boards tall and 80 feet is ten boards long.. Make sure you stagger the pattern and use brace anchoring boards to tie the structure into the hillside.

how much lumber ?

8'x8' ground patio
Asked by: gib92
I would suggest you visit "http://homedepot.bighammer.com/DesignerSeries/Store/Find" and use the application to design your 8'x8' ground patio...I have to assume this would be a ground level 8 foot x 8 foot wooden "deck platform" ....the application will produce an estimate of the materials and a simple design plan...you should contact your local county building department to determine if you need a permit and any local requirements etc. Always check with dig811 before digging any footings... A note...to build an 12 x 12 might actually be only a small increase in price...just remember to keep to standard lumber lengths of 8', 12' or 16'...to save waste. Hope this helps

We installed the 6" x 6" pressure treated timber as a support post on our back porch. It has only been a few weeks and the post is splitting from the top to the bottom on two sides. Some of the slits are about a 1/4" wide. It replaced a 4" x 4" post that had been there for over twenty years and was weathered but not splitting. Will Home Depot replace this item after I have cut it to the right length an installed it. Should not be splitting like this. Thanks for any info - Janet

Suggest you arrange for home delivery as lugging these in your car (even 1 or 2 pieces) would be an issue. Be aware all the pieces are just over 8ft, about 8ft 1 inch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Crack & Warp The store personnel were great in helping load the 7 timbers I purchased. Within 2 weeks after installing these timbers, they are cracking and warping already. The one's they replaced were 13 years old. These will never last at the rate their splitting. There is no way I'd ever use these for structual supports of any kind. We're going to seal these and probably have to seal the cracks with silicone before winter. If it wasn't for the fact we cut some of these, I'd return them.
