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

Treated balusters are used not only for safety and strength, but they also aid in creating a custom look to your railing project.

Every piece meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This timber is pressure treated in order to protect it from termites, fungal decay, and rot. Ideal for a variety of applications, including decks, landscaping, and other outdoor projects.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.

Ordered this online and it was received in good condition. I used them as the two vertical posts, for each side of the gate, on the new fence I was building. There was a small split in the end of one, but that is to be expected. Otherwise they were nice and straight, clean pieces of lumber. We shall see how well it holds up over the years.

4x6s work much better than 4x4s for hanging heavy 16 ft gates. Good solid flat face for wood screws for the fence boards. 4x4s in the middle with no gates.

For steps project, part of ongoing repairs to old shed going to be a She-Shed. These timbers are for below ground or in ground special treated, last longer than pressure treated. Worked perfectly. Project called for gravel, timbers, 12 inch nails, concrete pavers. Four steps in all, are 6 ft wide, freestanding; top step is 2 ft wide serves as a landing. Rest of steps are 1 ft wide. All steps 6 inches high since I'm 65 wanted them sturdy. R & R Landscaping provided the labor and helped with design. Minimal cuts These new steps replaced 3 rotten wood steps that were in front of the right hand door only. Will use polymeric sand to fill the cracks next.
