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

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.

How many years would you rate this lumber to last?

Asked by Andrew June 13, 2018

Answers

The newer treatment being used today to prepare pressure treated lumber does not hold up at all. It is a complete joke that I have to replace a ramp that is attached to my shed every 4 or 5 years. Home Depot's products completely rot and fail. Hopeful the future hold composite structural components!

If you have a dry basement, untreated lumber will work fine with using treated lumber for sill plate as insurance. If your basement is damp, I would work on curing the moisture problem first. Good luck.

Utter garbage. Ordered 32 pieces. 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.

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.
