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.

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.

Answer

The Home Depot website has the cost of its lumber. You can put the size lumber you want in the search window and it will list all that they offer. I am posting a link to their website that has the size lumber you inquired about. You can copy and paste it in your search engine to look at it. https://www.homedepot.com/p/2-in-x-8-in-x-8-ft-2-Prime-Ground-Contact-Pressure-Treated-Lumber-288711/301877000

What type of chemicals are used to treat the wood?

Asked by Sarah June 10, 2020
1
Answer

Sarah, I am told that your local Home Depot may have a Material Date Sheet which would describe the process used to treat the wood. Given that, I had a lumber mill next to property that I owned and was assured the only chemicals used to treat their lumber was a micronized form of copper sulfate which has only a very slight risk for human exposure. Just to be safe, I always wear rubber gloves while handling any treated lumber to avoid any chance of allergic reaction to my skin. Hope this answers your concerns.

Can i just stain right after sanding? Anything i need to do before wood staining?

Asked by Loya May 25, 2020
1
Answer

when the wood is shipped to the store it is still "wet" and will repel any stain. after several months of drying you can test the surface by applying a drop of water on the surface and observe whether it is immediately absorbed or forms a bead and not absorbed. If it is absorbed it can be stained. hope this helps.

A 2 x 8 x 10 could up to 40 lbs. It would be better to rent a truck if you are transporting more than a few boards.
