Studies show that adding a deck is one of the best ways you can increase your home's value.
Pressure-treated decking is building code approved for use in decking in above-ground or ground contact applications.
Your maintenance efforts will give you a pressure-treated project that looks bright and fresh for years to come!
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.
When determining the right stain and paint for your deck, consider what color will best enhance the wood's finish.
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.

Michael, Lumber prices have not returned to what they were one year ago, in January of 2020. We can blame the pandemic for the shutdowns at mills and treating facilities, but there was also an incredible amount of building going on or that was slated for the spring and summer. Demand grew steadily throughout the spring, and prices followed, spiking in August/September. While we cannot predict the future, it does not appear that prices are falling.
Figuring you lay the boards along the 14 ft length. 7 1/4" width of board plus 1/4" gap between boards. I come up with 28 boards. If you have a 3/8" gap between boards, I come up with 27 boards.
Depending on the span length, 2*8’s are okay for rafters. You should not use pressure treated Wood inside your house. Use regular spruce for interior framing.
yes this would work great for decking
Replaced our deck (400 sq ft). Quick delivery, good quality.... thank you Home Depot. Matthew
I think they will give you one cut for free
Ben, You could use this wood to make a door jamb, but we suggest you wait until the wood has dried thoroughly so that it does not shrink-up, resulting in a door that doesn't swing or close properly.
Went in to store, board selection not real good . Asked for help 30 minutes went by still no help had to get boards down off shelf over our heads was got a real fun day..
Although pressure-treated lumber is protected against rot (fungal decay) and termites, periodic maintenance must be performed to maximize protection against weathering. This maintenance will let you enjoy your new outdoor project for many years. Use the water test to see if it’s time to seal (or re-seal). Drizzle some water onto the wood. If the water beads, the wood is still sealed and protected. If the water is absorbed into the wood within a few seconds, it’s time to apply a sealer.
