  • 2X the protection compared to Above Ground treatment
  • Treated for protection against fungal decay, rot and termites
  • Use for decks, walkways, landscaping and other outdoor projects
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.

  • #2 grade lumber has few defects, knots are well-spaced and do not exceed the size regulations.
  • Ideal for a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications
  • Uniform thickness, density and appearance for stable and long lasting performance
  • Hot-dip galvanized fasteners are recommended

Questions & Answers

Would you use this for framing a shed wall if you were going to use weather resistant siding on the exterior? Or can you just use un treated studs?

Asked by: Mike
This depends on your local building code. Please contact the inspector in your area for details. This is a good use for this lumber if your building codes comply.

How many years would you rate this lumber to last?

How many years would you rate this lumber to last?
Asked by: Andrew
Maybe only 3 years.... Note that in the description of ground contact PTL that the above ground rating has changed. I built a deck 3 years ago with above ground PTL for both the structure and deck boards (2x6 decking). The deck had poor drainage, and poor air circulation. It has failed in multiple places due to dry rot. The whole of the underside of the deck is a webbing of fungus. The fungus leaves the boards looking like little cubes on the bottom side. So, beware. I am sure that the change was brought about by folks like me that read the above ground specs at the time. Now none of the PTL touched the ground. All of the structure rested on poured concrete piers from 4 to 6 inches above the ground surface. The ground surface was sloped for drainage. It was about 800 sqft. A lot of time, money and sweat. Now I have a warranty situation. They will replace the lumber with with the same grade, but I cannot use the same grade....

Can this be cut in the stire?

Asked by: Woody
Yes, Home Depot makes rough cuts of wood in-store to help customers accommodate lumber for transport. As a result, lumber cut in-store might conform exactly to customer specifications or needs.

what's the average weight of each of these planks

Asked by: kume
It is heavier when it is wet. Before I install those pressure treated lumbers, I let them dry and paint.

I had HD pick 14 2”X4”X8’ TREATED lumber and when they arrived, 9 were so bad that they were unusable. Their quality control completely failed and I had much difficulty returning them. I will next purchase materials for future projects from anyone else but HD.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst looking wood and it was pulled by your employees. Wood that should not have been sold unless the customer pulled it themselves was put in my order. Bad ends on almost each piece or wood and knots all over. Im waiting for someone to call about it. I would love to have someone come over and look at the wood and tell me that they would pick this wood out for a customers order. It looks like they just pulled the 25 or so pieces without looking at it for warps and knots and bad ends. These should have been sent back to the distributer. Or sold at a huge discount instead if being oulled for a pick up order.

I needed some pressure treated 2x4's to make some door trim for a double steel patio door that I could attach the door to. I also needed to make a couple other outdoor repairs. I needed a total of 8 boards. Yes, a few I found in the stack were warped, and even some of the ones I purchased had notches or knot-holes, but they were perfectly serviceable. This is #2 Grade lumber, not furniture grade, so you have to expect some flaws here and there. What was available in the Home Depot store stack was nowhere near as bad as what a competitor store had to offer. There, I went through an entire stack, just to find a couple usable boards. At Home Depot, I'd estimate that out of the stack I saw, maybe 96-98% were acceptable quality for what you are buying. Considering what lumber goes through from the mill to the store, and the generally poor quality of today's lumber compared to days gone by, that is a pretty good percentage! Will I go back to Home Depot to buy some more of this lumber? Absolutely!

When I received delivery, the stack looked good. When I unpiled the stack, concealed inside were 2 x 4's suitable for nothing but the trash. Not only was the quality bad, but the delivery was deceptive.

It took about an hour to sift through and find relatively straight boards with minimal knots and weak points. The lumber selected has worked very well and only one board warped as it dried out. I am happy with the end result, I would give 5 stars if it weren't this difficult to find good pieces for projects.

While containing an average number of knots, I have a hard time finding a single piece with intact edges. Many are not properly dried after pressure treatment. I would recommend wearing gloves when handling them to minimize toxic exposure.
