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.

Hello Stockmaster, While we do not recommend the use of pressure-treated lumber in an area where food is being prepared, the wood itself has been determined safe to use in a vegetable garden.
Ahmadon, The lumber should make a good outdoor sectional. Pressure treated wood provides protection against fungal decay, rot and termites, but not weathering of the wood. All wood weathers, but if you either stain and/or seal the wood, you'll extend the life of the material. Go to the boxed-off Info & Guides section on the product page, and click on the Use and Care Manual option. This goes into detail about how to optimize the life of pressure-treated wood.
Kin21, Yes, this wood is good for use out-of-doors.
I wanted some cut at the Northville store and was told no because pressure treated lumber would ruin the saw motor. I think he didn't feel like doing it.
