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.

Questions & Answers

How long should you wait before sealing or staining this wood

Asked by: Missy
I do this for a living. I own a construction company in Pittsburgh PA, we tell clients to wait atleast one season. So if you install the deck before spring... seal/paint/stain over the summer. if you build during summer, wait until the following spring/summer.

I have wanted to build a workshop and I needed a 14' x 20' Alaskan Slab installed, which has been completed. Unfortunately, it is 3" out of being square, which I will repair. It is also 3 1/2" out of being level. I am considering of using this to attempt to level my slab, instead of leveling with another layer of cement. This material I will be using around the perimeter and I will be making my own sleepers (if this is the correct word) every 16", and add a subfloor, prior to having the workshop installed. Will this work for this purpose. I'm 70 now and I want this workshop to last for at least another 20 years or until I'm dead!
Asked by: Bill
The timbers are #2 (rated for ground contact). They should work fine on your cement slab. For the out of level you may want to check your local building code for the span that you can run these. I will assume that with your slab being 3" out of level you will be siting flush on one side and 3 1/2" off in the other. You may need to stack treated wood for support under the 6bys

What is the weight of one piece?

What is the weight of one piece?
Asked by: Jimbo
I purchased 2 pieces, one was significantly heavier than the other. They are soaked in a liquid preservative prior to sale so the weight depends on how wet they still are at the time of purchase.
