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.

A: Jdmy, the timber provided is pressure treated to protect against fungal decay, rot, and termites. It is important to note that treated wood is usually delivered while still damp. As the wood dries, there may be slight changes in its width and length, and it may also split, cup, or warp. These changes are more likely to occur in lower-grade boards that already have knots and uneven grains. It's important to understand that each piece of lumber is unique and may have physical characteristics such as knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling, or splitting. If you plan to paint or stain the treated wood, it is crucial that the wood is dry enough to accept a coating. A simple way to determine if the wood is dry enough is to sprinkle droplets of water onto the surface. If the water is absorbed, the wood is ready for painting or staining. However, if the water droplets bead on the surface, the wood is still too wet. In this case, it is recommended to wait a few days before attempting to paint or stain the wood.
