Studies show that adding a deck is one of the best ways you can increase your home's value.
Pressure-treated decking is building code approved for use in decking in above-ground or ground contact applications.
Your maintenance efforts will give you a pressure-treated project that looks bright and fresh for years to come!
1. Depending on the location of your outdoor project with regard to direct sun exposure, foliage coverage, etc., it may be sufficient to clean/brighten and recoat every two years. 2. If you decide to wait two or more years to perform your next cleaning/brightening, you may want to use a power washer. Be sure that the cleaner/brightener you use contains a mildewcide.
When determining the right stain and paint for your deck, consider what color will best enhance the wood's finish.
If you desire to paint or stain the treated wood project, it is important that the wood be dry enough to accept a coating. The best way to determine if the wood is sufficiently dry to paint or stain is to sprinkle droplets of water onto the wood. If the water droplets are absorbed, the wood is ready to be painted or stained. If the water droplets bead on the surface of the wood, it is too wet. You should wait a few days before attempting to paint and stain the wood.

A: Hi Kick, You sure can stain this lumber, but give it plenty of time to dry so that you're not trying to add more fluid to something that is already chock full of fluid to begin with. As you might have seen in the product specifications near the bottom of the product page, this wood is green - certainly not kiln-dried, and not even plain old dry.

A: I would say yes.
A: measure how wide and long your project is. then divide the width of one board into that width to see how many boards you need. you would have to consider how many lengths you could obtain from one board as well. if your 325 sq ft project were a square, each side would be 18.02775637731995 ft, or 216.3330765278394 inches . divide 216.3330765278394 by the width of the boards, in inches, that you will be using. the square root of 325 = 18.02775637731995.
A: if everything is perfect you would need 53 pcs of the 2*10*8'. this doesn'/t take into account the material lost in cutting and gaps needed if any. you will probably have a mistake cut somewhere in there. you won't be able to use every bit of every board typically. figure 10% more minimum if you don't want to run back and forth to the store. boards are cheaper than time.
