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.

Pressure-Treated Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This double treated Ground Contact lumber must be used for applications where treated lumber is difficult to maintain, repair or replace. Treated lumber is critical to the performance and safety of an entire system or construction such as deck joists, beams and ledger boards. An additional benefit of treated lumber is its defense against rot and insect infestation for its vast majority of applications. Southern yellow pine is responsibly manufactured, safe, and environmentally friendly when used as directed.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.

    Q:How many boards would I need to cover a 20 x 30 deck?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Since wood is not the exact dimension it is sold as. You will need to do this computation. 12"x7.25"=87" 30'x12=3600". 3600/87=41.37 or 42. If they were 20'. boards. This board is only 8' in length. I would purchase 10' length so you need to double the number to 84 10' boards + 4 or 6 for spare.

      This wood was still wet and it dried after the project was completed leaving 1/4" gaps between the boards. This wood should not be sold until dry.

          I purchased over 100 of these boards to redo my dock and they have held up well given the environment. As always just be selective of each piece of lumber.
            Many of the boards were cupped or bowed (not twisted, thankfully), and we had to discard many of them that were missing the knots. The team at Home Depot worked with us and our exacting standards, helping us get the wood that we wanted. At one point, however, when the boards were mostly picked through, someone did tell us that we couldn't look inventory boards because the ones we had discarded were still on the shelf. The end product itself was fine and it is installed, but the process of getting the right product was arduous and took hours.
              The boards were fairly straight when I bought them. However, the pressure treating solution was still very fresh and the boards were so wet they quickly warped after I got them home. It appears the boards only received minimal kiln drying, but I was desperate and there were no other 2x8's to pick from. Terrible quality from the supplier.
