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 Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This treated Ground Contact lumber must be used for applications where treated lumber is difficult to maintain, repair or replace. Treated lumber is critical to the performance and safety of an entire system or construction such as deck joists, beams and ledger boards. An additional benefit of treated lumber is its defense against rot and insect infestation for its vast majority of applications. Southern yellow pine is responsibly manufactured, safe, and environmentally friendly when used as directed.

Q:What's the difference between the Weathershield line, and the cheaper regular pressure treated products?
by|Apr 19, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Auburn, Weathershield products utilize an advanced micronized copper solution known as MCA, or Micronized Copper Azole, which effectively protects against rot, fungal decay, and termites in both above-ground and ground-contact applications. Unfortunately, without knowledge of the treatment methods used in other brands or products, we are unable to make direct comparisons.

          A couple of days after using this product, in a construction project, many of the Beams had to be replaced due to warping. Bending measured up to 2 inches of distortion from original straight orientation. I am extremely dissatisfied with this product.
