Studies show that adding a deck is one of the best ways you can increase your home's value.
Pressure-treated decking is building code approved for use in decking in above-ground or ground contact applications.
Your maintenance efforts will give you a pressure-treated project that looks bright and fresh for years to come!
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.
When determining the right stain and paint for your deck, consider what color will best enhance the wood's finish.
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.
