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.

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
    by|Sep 28, 2023
    1 Answer
    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

          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

            Dear Joe, we are sorry to hear this product did not meet your expectations. Treated wood is typically still wet when it's delivered to our retailers. As lumber dries, you should expect slight changes in width and length, as well as it may split, cup and warp, as these are all natural occurrences of wood. If your project calls for precise measurements, be sure to check your lumber before purchasing. If there’s anything else that we can help you with, please e-mail our customer service department at UFPRetailCS@UFPI.com, and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.

            On that day I went in store to purchase a pressure treated mail box stand. Did not find what I was looking for. So I purchase the materials to make the mail box stand that matches the one every one has in the neighborhood. Found the items to do it. Thanks.
