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.

Pressure-treated lumber is treated for protection against termites and rot. Ideal for a variety of applications including decks, playsets, landscaping, and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. This decking can also be painted or stained. When used properly it is both safe and environmentally safe.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.

Answer

Drip a few drops of water onto the wood that you are testing. If the water beads up on the surface of the wood, the moisture content is still too high for the wood to accept a sealant. If the water droplets wick into the board, it is ready to accept a sealant. If the water beads up on the board, give the wood some more time to dry out, and you should eventually be able to test it again until the water wicks into the board.

It took quite a while to find boards that weren't warped/bowed/cupped/cracked. I should have measured the width of each, but I didn't. The widths ended up being significantly different between boards (up to 3/8" off). The thickness between the 16' 5/4 boards and the 8' was also inconsistent.
