Preventative Maintenance Plan

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.

Choosing The Right Stain Or Paint

When determining the right stain and paint for your deck, consider what color will best enhance the wood's finish.

Paint or Stain Tips

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.

Pressure-Treated Southern Yellow Pine Lumber is treated for protection against termites and rot. Ideal for a variety of ground contact applications including decks, play sets, walkways and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. This lumber can also be painted or stained. When used properly it is both safe and environmentally friendly.Treated wood is typically still wet when it's delivered to The Home Depot or job site. As it dries, you should expect slight changes in width and length. As lumber dries, it may split, cup and warp. This is more likely to occur to occur in lower-grade boards, where knots and uneven grains are already present. Each piece of lumber is unique and carries physical characteristics that may include the following: knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling and/or splitting.

    Q:Can this be stained?

    Answer This Question

    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.

        Q:How may would i need for 325 sq ft areq
        by|May 31, 2020

        Answer This Question

        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.

        by|Jun 3, 2021

          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.

          I constructed a platform at the bottom of the stairs to eliminate the tapered last step which was dangerous because there was no space, at the narrow tapered end, to step on. It caused many stumbles and a fall. Now with the platform it is safe.
