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 lumber is treated for protection against termites and rot. Ideal for a variety of applications including decks, play sets, landscaping, and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. When used properly it is both safe and environmentally friendly.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:What's the difference between - Select. Prime and Premium lumber grades?
    by|May 9, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Jo22, Prime is going to have better strength and appearance as it's double treated, so this can be used for applications where lumber is difficult to maintain, repair or replace. Premium would be suitable for decks, play sets, landscaping and other applications where lumber is exposed to the elements.

            I can't believe Home Depot is asking for a review of a 2x4. It's a 2x4. Is it a great 2x4? Does it exceed my expectations? It's a 2x4 and it pretty much meets my expectations for what a 2x4 is.
