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.

About This Product

Pressure-Treated Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This double treated Ground Contact lumber must be used for applications where treated lumber is difficult to maintain, repair or replace. Treated lumber is critical to the performance and safety of an entire system or construction such as deck joists, beams and ledger boards. An additional benefit of treated lumber is its defense against rot and insect infestation for its vast majority of applications. Southern yellow pine is responsibly manufactured, safe, and environmentally friendly when used as directed.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:How long does it take to dry almost completely? I found one that seemed dry to touch and lighter than others but failed the droplet test as beads formed on the surface. It did show a visible water stain when i rubbed it than the other wet to touch ones.

Answer This Question

A:  AshG, the duration for wood to dry varies based on the climate and the amount of sunlight it receives. In the summer, pressure-treated lumber exposed to direct sunlight can dry out within a few days. In cool and damp conditions or when shaded, the drying process will be significantly prolonged.

      Q:Is newly treated, still wet pressure treated wood ok to build with right away? I am building several raised beds and a bench/planter. I am worried about it warping as it dries, ruining the project.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Sg424, We would recommend letting the lumber dry before using on your project as pressure-treated products tend to shrink some as the lumber dries out.

        Q:do you have a pattern for cutting stringers ? from 2x10 by 8 ft
        by|Nov 12, 2019

        Answer This Question

        A:  Deetlebomb, We checked around and do not seem to have a product like that. Of course, the manufacturing facilities have machines that do that. If you are not interested in making a special order - call one of the PRO associates at Home Depot to see if this is possible, we would suggest hiring a local builder who is familiar with the code requirements for making a stringer that would be approved in your county/municipality, etc.

          A:  No set pattern.

          Used this lumber to rebuild my back steps.. I cut stringers out of the 2x10's and they worked fine. I suggest picking your own lumber so you get pieces that work for your project. There were large knots on most pieces in the stack, but I selected boards I could use where the knots would not affect my build. I also suggest you pre-drill everything to reduce the chance of splitting. I also suggest using the lumber while it's wet, when it's dry it's more prone to splitting. Also, if you leave it out in the sun for days and don't stack it properly you are asking for warps, cracks, and twisted boards. When you buy it, use it. Don't expect the quality to improve by letting it sit around for several weeks. It is a good product.. I'll be buying more in a few weeks to rebuild my front deck...

            Straight, no wane, not too knotty. It's a good value. My purchase was online and the store staff pulled it. I got good pieces. I built a stoop that sits directly on the ground. No foundation.
