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. 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.

  • Ground contact treated lumber can be used in both above ground and ground contact exterior applications

      A:  If you look on line you can find an overview of the current chemicals approved for various projects. Most lumber used for outdoor and decking are treated with a chemical called ACQ which is an Alkaline copper quaternary. It is a water based preservative that prevents decay from fungi and insects. It is a fungicide and insecticide. It has relatively low risks based on components of copper oxide and quaternary ammonium compounds. There are an additional 5 approved chemical wood preservatives. You can check on line to see how effective . Borates, Copper azole, copper naphthenate, Copper HDO and Polymeric betaine. Check the label on the end of each piece of treated lumber to determine which treatment has been used. Hope this helps.

          Do not buy
          Put in a small ground deck. We let them dry stained them and within a month boards started to warp and even worse two months later. This has occurred with more than half the boards. Not only a waste of money but now a safety issue
