About This Product

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.

    Q:How bad will these warp? I need to use them ripped 3/4x3/4 for exterior frames

    Answer This Question

    A:  Jeff, this type of lumber offers consistent thickness, density, and appearance to ensure reliable and long-lasting performance. It is worth considering that each piece of lumber is unique and treated wood is typically delivered while still damp. As it undergoes the drying process, you may observe slight changes in width and length. There is a possibility of the lumber splitting, cupping, or warping as it dries. The most effective method to confirm if the wood is dry or not is to sprinkle water droplets onto the surface. If the water droplets are absorbed, the wood is dry. If the water droplets bead on the surface, the wood is still wet.

          Wood for dog ramp
          I purchased the wood to build a dog ramp. It worked out very well. My dog is 16 and unable to go down the steps to the yard.

          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
