    Answer This Question

    A:  No Use a treated 4x4 when in contact with ground

    by|Jun 2, 2022

    A:  Yes, you can use this on exterior wood fence, but to maximize how long it lasts without rotting, you will want first stain it with some kind of waterproof deck stain. Checkout products like Thompsons Water Seal or Behr Waterproofing Stain and Sealer.

    A:  Gilberto, This wood is not treated, so it will not be very durable if exposed to the weather. We suggest that you choose pressure-treated 4 in. x 4 in. lumber.

      A:  It can but it is not treated so it wouldnt last long

          Q:Can i use these with privacy fence
          by|May 10, 2020

          Answer This Question

          A:  Use treated posts for fencing. Anchor posts for fencing should be either treated 4 x 4 or treated 4 x 6's. Untreated lumber should not come in contact with the ground. Kiln dried lumber would best be used as a furniture type project.

          by|Dec 5, 2020

          A:  You could but it is not treated so it will rot in just a few years

          Good lumber, particularly for indoor projects such as bannisters, pillars or workbenches.
          These can be used outside but are not pressure-treated and would need to be painted or sealed if used in wet areas or they will rot quickly. I have used these mostly when constructing work benches as they serve as good stocky legs. They are kiln-dried but still can warp slightly as the remainder of the wood dries out over time. The only pain when purchasing these, is picking through the pile for a quality piece.

            We're using this as rail edges for our bar tops, it's a nice sturdy & great looking piece that can be sanded & stained to match the slab cedar bar tops & will look great against the bar fronts in cedar as well... In my opinion, keep the tags on the ends instead of stamping the actual lumber, so it will help the user have a beautiful project when it's done! We're still workin on it, but I have included a pic below of where we were starting on it, anyone looking to see the finished product, come on out to Shifters Roadhouse near Coldspring, TX & have a look for yourself. Best time to take a look is on Saturdays, we can only work on this project on weekends right now but it is looking super awesome!!! We LOVE home Depot & I think the Huntsville, TX location is my favorite of all that I have ever been to - they have folks who are willing to come ask if you need any help, whereas some store have orange aprons who see ya looking around & they go the other way to avoid ya... The Store Manager here is definitely doing something right & encouraging the employees to make a difference in their customers shopping experience, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
