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.

How deep is the Cedar-Tone? Are cuts going to expose a different color? If so, is there a matching stain to stain those cuts?
Asked by: Ibrewhaha
Color is all the way through. Instead of “green” it is a cedar tone.

How much does this product warp after installation compared to regular green treated lumbar?

Will be used on a deck
Asked by: ndubbs
This products ends will warp and 12' lengths will twist. Make sure you use 4" deck screws, 3" screws will pull out. I'm dealing with this now on my 12' x 24' deck I install last fall. Staining and sealing didn't help much.

I used all cedar tone pressure treated lumber to build a deck. How long should I wait to put a clear stain on it.

Asked by: Amanda
Wait till it's dry enough that water doesn't bead up on the surface of it any more. That way you know the stain will soak in
