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.

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.

Can these be stained ?

Can these be stained ?
Asked by: Pip
Yes, this lumber can be stained as long as it is dry. Drip a few drops of water onto the wood that you are testing. If the water beads up on the surface of the wood, the moisture content is still too high for the wood to accept a sealant. If the water droplets wick into the board, it is ready to accept a sealant. If the water beads up on the board, give the wood some more time to dry out, and you should eventually be able to test it again until the water wicks into the board.

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....
