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.

Pressure-Treated Southern Yellow Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. Color-infused, so pigment is driven deep into wood fibers, creating beauty that's guaranteed to stand up to the elements for years. Treated for protection against fungal decay, rot and termites, it is ideal for ground contact and a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications.Treated wood is typically still wet when it’s delivered to The Home Depot or job site. As it dries, you should expect slight changes in width and length. As lumber dries, it may split, cup and warp. This is more likely to occur to occur in lower-grade boards, where knots and uneven grains are already present. Each piece of lumber is unique and carries physical characteristics that may include the following: knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling and/or splitting.

Is this rated for basement use @ .60
Asked by: Alex
Sorry, don't know about basements., I rebuilt my deck using it as the deck floor boards. Looks great, holding up well after two years. I assume the .60 is a humidity level? My deck is in Michigan, has snow, rain, sun on it; all season use.

Can a 2x6 board be used with joist 2 foot on center
Asked by: Johnny
Not for anything structural i.e. decks, houses or room additions. You could use 2x6 for a shed floor but I’d still put them at 16 o.c. W/ 3/4 ply.

I used it because I felt I may plant some vegetables plants in my flower garden and didn't want to use wolmanized wood because it leaks arsenic into the ground . Normally Wolmanized is easy to spot because its green . After building my garden boarders I noticed a spot of green . Its is still wolmanized wood . They just stain it and seal it . The seal only last a couple of years . So the arsenic still goes into the ground .
