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.

A: Yes but if you are asking you might want to hire someone to make the repair
A: Hello Mikem, You will find arguments on both sides for this; some will say that it is fine, but others will tell you to find the best plywood that you can, then coat it with varnish, urethane, or an enamel paint to prolong its longevity. We suggest that you check a few videos on this topic by searching the following words: use pressure treated lumber for aluminum boat. Something should pop-up immediately that will help.
A: Dev, This lumber has not been kiln-dried. You may have to wait quite some time for the wood to dry. Perform the splash test by placing the wood horizontally and splashing some water on it. After about 10 minutes of time, see if the water has absorbed. If it has, the wood is ready to accept stain. If not, give it another week before performing the splash test again.
A: It depends - You will notice your pressure treated wood is kind of 'damp' when you buy it. It can take from a couple weeks to a couple months to adequately dry out before staining it, depending on your climate and amount of rain. If you stain while it is too wet, then you risk a poor application and a waste of expensive stain - the moisture in the wood takes up space, if there is too much moisture in the wood, it will not be able to absorb the stain - there won't be enough space in the wood pores. Ideally, you should wait until the wood has a 12% to 15% moisture content (or less, less is better) before applying a stain. This will allow for adequate absorption of the stain and a longer lasting result. Considering the cost of wood and the cost of stain, I would recommend you pick up a moisture meter (can get them for $20-$30 on a popular shopping site). Good luck!
A: it's not kiln dried; frankly the stuff comes full of water. You should wait at least 6 months to stain, ideally a year.
A: Enough and they are not measured by the pallet
