About This Product

This pressure treated timber is treated for protection against termites and rot. Ideal for a variety of applications including decks, play sets, landscaping and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. When used properly it is both safe and environmentally safe.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:I want to build a pergola using a grid kit. Is there any recommended additional treatment to apply before assembly? Are these likely to warp?
by|Oct 9, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Jdmy, the timber provided is pressure treated to protect against fungal decay, rot, and termites. It is important to note that treated wood is usually delivered while still damp. As the wood dries, there may be slight changes in its width and length, and it may also split, cup, or warp. These changes are more likely to occur in lower-grade boards that already have knots and uneven grains. It's important to understand that each piece of lumber is unique and may have physical characteristics such as knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling, or splitting. If you plan to paint or stain the treated wood, it is crucial that the wood is dry enough to accept a coating. A simple way to determine if the wood is dry enough is to sprinkle droplets of water onto the surface. If the water is absorbed, the wood is ready for painting or staining. However, if the water droplets bead on the surface, the wood is still too wet. In this case, it is recommended to wait a few days before attempting to paint or stain the wood.

    Q:What is Ground Contact Pressure-Treated Timber and also what is Pressure-Treated Ground Contact Southern Pine Timber? What's the difference
    by|Jul 13, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  NITOY, without an exact Model # of what you are comparing this product to, we are unable to provide the exact differences of this and the Pressure-Treated Ground Contact Southern Yellow Pine Timber. When searching the description of "Pressure-Treated Ground Contact Southern Yellow Pine Timber", it appears that the length is different, but the grade, treatment process and species are the same.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Moltroub, Model # 288741 is our product, but Model # 4230254 is not our product, so therefore we cannot give you the exact differences. It appears Model # 4230254 is Cedar-Tone, and Model # 288741 is not.

            The wood now has large cracks in it which kind of scared me because I was putting a lot of weight on it, but it held and I'm here to talk about it.
