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.

What type of stain is used to treat the lumber? Is it water or oil based?

Asked by: Justin
Use a stain/water repellent sealer made for pressure treated wood. Typically the better the stain/sealer the more solids it has in it. There are several good brands of sealer/stains including Behr, Cabot and others available in the aisle at Home Depot. Oil based stains typically outlast the water based but will have more clean up. This is really a question for sealer/stain manufacturers.
