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.

Balusters & Spindles

Treated balusters are used not only for safety and strength, but they also aid in creating a custom look to your railing project.

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.
  • Made of southern yellow pine
  • Pressure-treated for ground contact and exterior general use
  • Backed by a lifetime limited warranty against termite infestation and rot
  • 2 in. x 12 in. x 8 ft.
  • Uniform thickness, density and appearance for stable and long lasting performance
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.
  • Prime grade lumber is the perfect choice if appearance is the main concern with your lumber project
  • Prime grade lumber has fewer knots and an overall better appearance
  • Prime grade lumber can be used for deck boards, fence panels

          Boards were straight and nearly knot free. They were easy to work building a ramp and have survived daily use and numerous rains and still look like new. The best treated lumber I have purchased in over 30 years.

          I was expecting more from Home Depot.. Would have gone elsewhere had they had the same size... We bought 8 boards. Not cheap for this size. Had them waiting for us for PU.. I looked them over and returned 1/2.. Of the 4 replacements, I had to return 2.. We got our building project done, but this experience kinda left our panties in a wad..

            The product was great. The store employees, however, were more interested in jive-talking with one another than helping me. Also, one employee was texting and obviously did not want to be disturbed.

            2x12 had splits and was warped bad enough that I almost returned it. I used it as bench seats for exterior furniture so I put the bow up but some of the splits are 1/8” wide or more.
