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.

About This Product

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.

            I purchased the 2x6 pressure treated lumber to restore the deck of a boat house. The lumber was easy to work with, and did not have a lot of knots in it. Even when screwing the lumber in place, I didn't experience a lot of splitting along the edges, that I experienced with previous materials. I will purchase again.

              For a #2 prime it has quite a few knots. Used the side that looked the best. Had to go thru a lot of wood to find the better looking ones.

              I purchased the Prime Ground Contact Pressure Trested Lumber for a new deck I was building. I have purchased lumber from other stores and most of the time I’ve had to select them individually by myself with little help, mainly because I wanted to select the best lumber with minimal curves or imperfections. The lumber I purchased from Home Depot was already picked and ready for me to load. The lumber was of great quality and had very little curves or imperfections. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase.
