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.
  • Made of pine
  • Ground contact treated lumber can be used in both above ground and ground contact exterior applications
  • Backed by a lifetime limited warranty against termite infestation and rot
  • 1 in. x 6 in. x 8 ft.
  • Must use ground contact pressure treated lumber where lumber is at risk for poor air circulation, less than 6 in. from the ground or has poor or no water drainage below the structure
  • Ground contact treated lumber should be used in tropical climates or applications likely to have prolonged contact with vegetation or leaf litter
  • Ideal for a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications
  • Uniform thickness, density and appearance for stable and long lasting performance
  • Hot-dip galvanized fasteners are recommended
  • Individual pieces of pressure treated lumber will reference ground contact on the end tag
  • WeatherShield includes water repellant in the treatment process
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.

I don't think so. They aren't flexible.

It says its paintable, is that immediately or do you have to wait like most treated lumber?

Asked by oldbarn December 29, 2020

I have used this kind of treated wood to build multiple pieces of outdoor furniture. When I get the wood I will usually let it sit in my garage for around 4-5 days. I will then construct my project (2-3 days) and let it sit for another day before I either stain or paint it. I've not had any issues with stain or paint coming off, with several pieces being outdoors for about 2+ years now. For what it's worth I do 2 coats of the stain or paint (latter with built-in primer).

Can I order these 1×6 8 ft on line and then pick up curb side???

Answers

Wolverine, Our recommendation is that you contact your preferred Home Depot location's Pro Desk associate and explain that you'd like to order Model #253935 online with curb-side pick-up to follow. The associate will tell you whether this is possible or not. If it is not a possibility, you might request placing the order through another method. As for the pick-up, if you explain that you are in need of assistance with loading due to a health or physical challenge, it is likely that Home Depot would do its best to accommodate your needs. Best of luck to you.

Not quite as sturdy as 5/4" deck board, but plenty strong for uses requiring 3/4" pressure treated wood. Bought 62 of them for expanding a light-weight deck around the back side of a workshop, and only had 2-3 that were warped enough to need some corrective action while installing. Good stuff. The 30 boards I installed last year are holding up well.
