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 Southern Yellow Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. Treated for protection against fungal decay, rot and termites, it is ideal for ground contact and a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications. Responsibly manufactured from renewable southern yellow pine, this lumber is both safe and environmentally friendly when used as directed in appropriate applications.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.

        A:  14’ lengths are not always available, so the best way to get them is to ask the Pro Desk staff if they can get them for you. I’ve never seen them “off the shelf” anywhere, but they may be able to special order them. You’ll likely pay as much (or more) for them as you would a 16 footer, though.

          Q:If not, Is there another wood you recommend?
          by|Aug 13, 2020
          2 Answers
          Answer This Question

          A:  Gordo, As you are probably aware, horses love to chew, and certain wood species are not recommended for use where horses might start to nibble. This is the case, too, with pressure-treated wood. Maple and cherry are on the no-no list, too. You might consider tongue and groove wood material for your stall lining because it's flush, and there are no ledges. Pine and oak are both approved. You'll have to decide for yourself if you would feel comfortable with using pressure-treated wood that is behind the stall lining, and this, of course, would be because you know how your horse(s) behaves. Best of luck on this project.

            I wanted something that would stand up to the weather, last several seasons, could be painted and was not too expensive. This checked all of the boxes.

            Most of the wood that was ordered was split. It is unfair that I cannot even depend on the quality control of your employees to find me decent wood.
