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: Hello Dogg, As we do not know your location, we cannot give you any direction on finding this product in your Home Depot store, but that is something that one of the PRO associates should be able to help you with just over the phone or when you go in the store.
A: I wouldn't. It's probably OK, but not very appealing.
A: Personally, I would NOT use treated lumber. I would fear the chemicals in the wood might be unwelcome contamination in food and beverages. If you can get a Material Safety Data sheet, I am pretty sure you would find that it is not a good idea. I suggest using cedar. Also, 2x6 seems a bit much. I recommend you Google picnic table plans
A: This lumber is safe to use around animals as long as it is not ingested.
A: I am pretty sure that treated lumber is not good to use around animals. But you might want to consider cedar if you want weather resistance without paint.
A: Please contact your local PRO associate to see if this lumber is available for special order in your area.
