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

Treated balusters are used not only for safety and strength, but they also aid in creating a custom look to your railing project.

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.

Sturdy
Purchased because I wanted to try my hand at building a Adirondack chair. Wasn't trying to build a forever lasting or high quality chair, just wanted to give it a try. Was extremely satisfied with the outcome. This is one sturdy chair. I did protect the wood with a polyurethane stain and so far has survived all the rain and snow the mother nature had thrown at it. Again, I am not a skilled craftsman, but this wood was PERFECT for my need.

    Half of a 2x4 isn't a 2x4
    Absolutely terrible quality. 20% of the boards have half of their volume missing. 20% of the boards have splits that go over halfway thought the boards. 10% of them have knots missing from the board leaving gaping holes. If you get past the first half that are completely unfit for construction, good luck finding one that isn't warped, bucked, or twisted. This wood is so bad, I reccomend that the manufacturer be reported for false grading.
