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.

Hi fatamy, yes this is for one post. Check with you local Home Depot and they can help you with what you need. Ret
There are ground stakes available. I personally use 12”-16” pieces of 1/2” rebar. Drill a 1/2” hole through them and just hammer the rebar through the wood and into the ground. 4” nails on a 45* angle works good to nail the pieces to the next one at the ends. Make sure you don’t have any sprinkler pipes where you’re putting your spikes into the ground.
MikeF, Your wood should weigh anywhere from 33-37 pounds, depending on how wet it is.
in the cart you can click on remove from cart.
Dd,I would think a 1/2" drill bit would work; however I believe I would use a 9/16th to be sure.
Hi TurtlePower, yes you could use these to build a rack but you need to support them so they will be secure. The key to any support is the load or weight limit that you must not exceed for your own safety. Ret.
you would need to contact your local home depots pros desk.
If that would be tall enough. These are 8’. You could check with local building department.
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
