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.

Each piece of lumber is unique and carries physical characteristics that may include the following: knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling and/or splitting.

Is it a good idea to paint the post white.? Why I am asking is I have heard it takes away Pre-Treated Varnish that it is sprayed on it. Thanks Terry
Asked by: Coastie1
You can paint this any color you want a year after installation. This time gives it a chance to dry out and the paint will stick.

4 in. x 4 in. x 10 ft. #2 Ground Contact Pressure-Treated Timber is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 179.

Five years ago I built a large deck with HD PT wood...it has rotted already! Almost the entire deck has been replaced pierce by piece. I have another deck I built 30 years ago and it’s still strong. Don’t sell PT wood that will not last...and your life guaranteed deck screws rust in 2 years if within an short distance to the ocean! They really suck! Stainless steel is the only way to go...

But it was wood. it was the size I selected. And because I went through about 6 to find a straight one, it was fairly straight. It did the job I wanted it for. So it was a great piece of wood.

Used this to replace an old 4x4 which holds one end of netting for climbing plants in my garden. The old 4x4 was not treated and after a few years rotted in the ground. Works great and expect it to last several years.
