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.

This extra-thick decking is designed to enhance the beauty and durability of your deck or outdoor project. Its weather-beating durability offers everything you demand from treated wood. Additionally, it's protected against rot and termite attack. While naturally attractive, it may be painted, stained or sealed after installation.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.

Depends on how wet it is. Front deck was a year. Back deck is on the second year. I can stain it next summer. You can easily tell by looking at it.

For the most part, the quality of this decking is good. A lot of knots and some boards are wider and/or thicker than others so you have to waste time to match them up to others with the same defect. Hope it lasts a lifetime.

Shrinkage is much more than normal. Suggest separating and drying out for over a week before installing. Shrinks long ways as well. Expressed concerns to local store they suggested I contact manufacturer. Have replaced 12 boards thus far. Wish south had cedar options like Midwest. Much better wood.

A VERY worthy substitute for paying for the more expensive 5/4 board

I was leery of going cheaper and thinner by buying 1 5/32" instead of the more popular (but much more expensive) 5/4 boards. However, the cost difference made my mind up, and I'm very happy I chose these. In reality these are only 3/32" thinner than 5/4 board (which is nothing), they are still very sturdy and have the nice rounded edges like 5/4. My deck is 16'x22' which is 352 sq ft. That's a difference between $425 for these 16' boards or $797 ($372 more) for the 5/4. To me the choice was obvious. The Home Depot worker who helped me load these said the premium ("prime") boards go toward the 5/4 board, so these 1 5/32 ones tend to have more knots. That may be true but it wasn't that noticeable, I was looking at the stacks of each there in the store and failed to see much difference to be honest. You just have to be selective and only pick good ones with minimal knots and no cracks, like you would logically do anyway. I highly recommend these. See my pic, and you can see that these boards look great. No boards are knot-free anyway. One thing I would recommend is using 16" o.c. joist spacing, not 24". I would do that even with 5/4 but definitely with these just to have a properly sturdy deck...just my two cents there.
