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.

Color-infused, so pigment is driven deep into wood fibers, creating beauty that's guaranteed to stand up to the elements for years. 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.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.

Questions & Answers

Clarification please... Can this be painted???

I'm replacing an outdoor deck railing, and am assuming that pressure treated lumber like this 2 in. x 4 in. x 16 ft. #2 Prime Cedar-Tone Ground Contact Pressure-Treated Lumber is appropriate. However, it needs to painted right away to match my home. Should I use this pressure-treated lumber; or, since it needs to be painted immediately, should I just use conventional, untreated lumber?
Asked by: DR
To make sure the wood is ready to paint, please test it first. Place a drop of water onto the surface of the wood. If the water beads up, the moisture content is still too high for the wood to accept a sealant. If the water droplet wicks into the board, it is ready to accept a sealant. If it the water beads up on the board, give the wood more time to dry out. Repeat this test until the wood is dry enough to paint.
