Yes make sure you keep them out of the sun
Hi Franz, it looks like this 4 in. x 6 in. x 8 ft. Prime #2 and Better Douglas Fir Lumber is a store exclusive item and only able to be bought in a Home Depot store. If you are unable to see the store inventory or price it is most likely either not a stocked item in your area or no longer available for purchase from Homedepot.com. I would advise you visit or contact your local Home Depot store for pricing and availability. Please follow the steps below to localize your Homedepot.com: 1. Localize Homedepot.com using your zip code (My Store Location: Change) 2. Choose the store where you want to pick up the item (Make this my Store) We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!
Yes use pressure treated
This lumber is not treated for ground contact. If your post bases prevent ground contact this lumber should work for your patio cover. You would still want to do something to protect it from weathering - stain, water seal, or similar.
This item is paintable. We will update the specification accordingly. Sorry for the confusion.
