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 Southern Yellow Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. Treated for protection against fungal decay, rot and termites, it is ideal for ground contact and a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications. Responsibly manufactured from renewable southern yellow pine, this lumber is both safe and environmentally friendly when used as directed in appropriate applications.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.

Q:Planned use is for a deck. Moisture content states Green in the spec. Does that imply I need to let it dry out for some time before cutting and using it for joists? If so, being in mid October, what amount of time does it need to sit to avoid shrinkag?

Answer This Question

A:  HomeAlone, yes, that is correct. Treated wood is typically delivered to our retailers while still retaining moisture. To determine if the wood has dried, a useful method is to sprinkle droplets of water onto the surface. If the water droplets are absorbed, then the wood is dry. If the water droplets form beads on the surface, it indicates that the wood is still too wet.

    It is to replace an old pressure treated that has split and rotted. It should last longer because it is ground contact material and it will be off the ground at least four feet.

    Awesome delivery. Packaged nicely and delivery team was very mindful of current weather conditions. Still not the best price compared to pre-COVID, but needed the materials.
