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.

Balusters & Spindles

This sturdy Pressure-Treated Timber #2 Southern Yellow Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. Treated for protection from termites and rot, it is ideal for a variety of applications including decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. Responsibly manufactured from renewable southern yellow pine, this lumber is both safe and environmentally friendly when used properly and can be painted to match any home or business exterior.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.
  • Manufactured from southern yellow pine, a renewable resource, for an eco-friendly choice
  • Pressure-treated for ground contact applications
  • Uniform thickness, density and appearance with a smooth surface that can be painted for a customized look
  • Actual dimensions: 3.56 in. x 3.56 in. x 96 in.
  • Lifetime limited residential warranty against rot and termites
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.
  • Use #2 grade lumber when both appearance is not the most important to you project.
  • May have wane (bark edge) on corners
  • Use #2 grade lumber when strength is the main feature you are looking for on your project.

beautiful new fence
Just replaced my old fence and it was way past time to do so. I got all of my materials at HD except for the pickets. The pickets were not available at HD. I would add a photo of the old fence but I would be embarrassed for anyone to see it. I plan to stain with a clear stain in a couple of months to keep it looking great and to protect the wood. I wish that HD sold the pickets that I needed for HOA compliance. I ordered a few extra post and when the job was done, HD gladly gave me a refund for the returned unused post.

bought 2. looked descent. 1 cracked severely as it dried
Bought two of these for a project where they get cemented into a pot we're flowers will be added on top of the concrete. Lights will be hung so they wont be structual.1 of the cracked so badly while drying but after being cemented in so too late to return. With the unflated price of crappy quality lumber right now, I should have used pvc.

    I Purchased these 4 x 4 treated posts for adding solar lamp lights to my yard, and they went in like a breeze after digging holes with a post hole digger. After the holes were dug to my desired depth I poured in fast setting cement, added water and after 20 minutes it was ready to add my lamp on top.

    I bought four of these to build a fence around a slab for a storage area. I put them two feet in the ground and fix them with ready made concrete. I painted the exposed area. I leveled them, but made the mistake of not square one with the other in line. This turned out to not be a big problem as the were lined up pretty well with the slab.. I copy the existing fencing, using 2x4s and left over fencing I had. I bought the ready to assemble door from Home Depot. I am quite happy how it all turned out.

    I was pleased with the quality of the yellow treated pine timber for the garden project I did. All except one of the items were straight and easy to cut. It definitely met my expectations.
