Product Overview

  • 2X the protection compared to Above Ground treatment
  • Treated for protection against fungal decay, rot and termites
  • Durable for your deck and outdoor projects
Pressure-Treated Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This pressure-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 6in. from the ground, or has poor or no water drainage below the structure
  • Ground contact treated lumber should be used in tropical climates or applications likely to have prolonged contact with vegetation or leaf litter
  • 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.
  • Note: product may vary by store

What chemicals are used in the pressure treatment of this lumber?

What chemicals are used in the pressure treatment of this lumber?
Asked by: NoOne
Wood that has been industrially pressure-treated with approved preservative products poses a limited risk to the public, and should be disposed of properly. On December 31, 2003, the U.S. wood treatment industry stopped treating residential lumber with arsenic and chromium (chromated copper arsenate, or CCA). This was a voluntary agreement with the United States Environmental Protection Agency. CCA was replaced by copper-based pesticides, with exceptions for certain industrial uses.[2] CCA may still be used for outdoor products like utility trailer beds and non-residential construction like piers, docks, and agricultural buildings. Industrial wood preservation chemicals are generally not available directly to the public and may require special approval to import or purchase depending on the product and the jurisdiction where being used. So basically, it's safe but don't eat it if your a wood boring insect.
