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.

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 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.

How many years would you rate this lumber to last?

How many years would you rate this lumber to last?
Asked by: Andrew
to Andrew, Concerning life expectancy of Pressure Treated Lumber (PT) it depends on the environmental exposure. When not in direct contact with water or soil, you can expect upwards of 50 years, possibly 100 years. Now, concerning the worst case condition, I have PT wood that were used as fence posts that are directly installed in the earth and they generally lasted only 7-10 years. Outdoors in the sun, they dry out and crack and also the wet ground will cause a rotting transition point where the underground portion will be very different in moisture quantity than the above ground portion; thus the lumber will break off at the ground level. If you can, don't let your lumber be in direct contact with the ground; create a concrete or brick foundation for them to support on. Then you will have a good chance of many years of life. I have several PT 4x4 columns on my back porch that are well over 40 years old.

Customer Reviews

2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Ground Contact Pressure-Treated Lumber is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 95.
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 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.

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.

The lumber was a terrible cut many 2x4 were worm eaten or still had bark and knots on many sides. i was only using them to make a temp shed floor but they were almost too rotten to use for that. Will look elsewhere for future lumber purchases.

The #2 grade PT 2x4x8 was more than 20% less costly than the higher quality version ( I assume it was called the #1 grade) and had no appreciable structural difference. The boards were straight with no large knots or splits in the lumber. I had hand picked each of my 26 boards purchased to be sure I received no crooked lumber. The biggest negative is the fact that the #2 grade seemed to have been left outside in a heavy rain, they were very very wet. The #1 grade was appreciably dryer, but this may be because the #2 grade was just delivered from the factory and the #1 grade had been on the shelf inside of the Home Depot for many weeks. I chose to save the money and let my lumber dry out in the sunlight this week at home. Luckily we had no rain.

Ordered these on line ,with H.D. delivery, all came in a bundle, after getting about 4or5 boards down the rest were the worst 2x4's ever. They wouldn't be used even for framing a dog house let alone for my deck railing. Had to cut boards down to get what I could use, or pay a fee for pick up and delivery of replacements, so did let staff pick your boards for you, ten or borrow a truck and pick them yourself.
