Studies show that adding a deck is one of the best ways you can increase your home's value.
Pressure-treated decking is building code approved for use in decking in above-ground or ground contact applications.
Your maintenance efforts will give you a pressure-treated project that looks bright and fresh for years to come!
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.
When determining the right stain and paint for your deck, consider what color will best enhance the wood's finish.
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.

yes it can be.
Supply and demand. With homeowners and renters home a lot during this Covid epidemic, home patios, decks, etc. have been built a lot. Supply is low and demand for 4x4s is high. Home Depot has to pay more for extra shipments and expedited delivery. The costs get passed on to the consumer.
Demand is up, supply is down.
No. Treated wood should never be placed where waterfowl lives. Your game warden will not be a happy camper...
Hello, You have posted your question on the users forum. I live in Nashville and lumber is in short supply here also. I would suggest you contact the manager at your local store and see if he can give you a delivery date. Good luck
