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.

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.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
  • Ground Contact treated lumber can be used in both Above Ground and Ground Contact exterior applications
  • Backed by a lifetime limited warranty against termite infestation and rot
  • 2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft.
  • Must use Ground Contact pressure treated lumber where lumber is at risk for poor air circulation, less than six inches from the ground, or has poor or no water drainage below the structure
  • #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
  • Individual pieces of pressure treated lumber will reference Ground Contact on the end tag
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.
  • Use #2 grade lumber when both appearance is not the most important to you project.
  • May have wane (bark edge) on corners
  • Use #2 grade lumber when strength is the main feature you are looking for on your project.

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!

A full 2x4 is too heavy for my purposes. I use these as frames for my chicken runs in my backyard, & I’ve also used them to stabilize my nest boxes in a metal garden shed that doesn’t have load-bearing walls. My latest project was making a stand for my goat feeder. I plan to make many more pens with these & I like that they are seemingly saturated in weatherproofing. I’m hoping it will keep them in good condition for many years.

Used the same lumber then and it has held up great considering there may be 1000 lbs leaning against it at times. It looks good also. Very pleased with the results. I feel confident that my horses are safely secured.

I hand-selected eight foot "YellaWood" two-by-fours for privacy fence construction. The boards were straight and worked perfectly. It is getting increasingly more difficult to find good quality pine these days.
