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 Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. Treated for protection against fungal decay, rot and termites, it is ideal for ground contact and a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications. Responsibly manufactured from renewable southern yellow pine, this lumber is both safe and environmentally friendly when used as directed in appropriate applications.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.

Kiddie Picnic Table
Had to pick through the 200 or so planks they had on hand to find the sweet ones. Since i was making a picnic table and needed some structural strength, i couldnt risk any knotty or split wood. I found what i needed and the lumber itself was a dream to work with, cut and assemble.

    I wanted to have two gates for access to my fenced in back yard. One of the gates is 4 feet wide and the other is 5 feet wide. The 5 foot wide gate allows the riding mower easy access to and from the back yard. Our two dogs have a huge 1/2 acre in which to run and play. The 1X4 PT lumber was perfect for the gate part of the project. Next part of the project is to have split rail fencing in front of the welded wire to have nice curb-side appeal.

    Wood was easy to work with but not straight. Couple of ends split when driving screws into it but I think I should have pre drilled to avoid that. Otherwise made a nice sides for my utility trailer.
