About This Product

Pressure-Treated Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This double 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.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.

  • Made of southern yellow pine
  • Ground Contact treated lumber can be used in both Above Ground and Ground Contact exterior applications
  • Backed by a lifetime limited warranty against termite infestation and rot
  • 2 in. x 6 in. x 8 ft.
  • Must use Ground Contact pressure treated lumber where lumber is at risk for poor air circulation, less than six inches from the ground, or has poor or no water drainage below the structure
  • #2 grade lumber has few defects, knots are well-spaced and do not exceed the size regulations.
  • Ideal for a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications
  • Uniform thickness, density and appearance for stable and long lasting performance
  • Hot-dip galvanized fasteners are recommended
  • Individual pieces of pressure treated lumber will reference Ground Contact on the end tag
  • WeatherShield includes water repellant in the treatment process
  • No two pieces of lumber are the same.
  • Color, grain pattern and texture will vary as well.
  • Prime grade lumber is the perfect choice if appearance is the main concern with your lumber project

        Answer This Question

        A:  MrsNast, This is a relatively "heavy" weight softwood that is pressure-treated.

        by|Oct 31, 2022

          A:  Yes

          by|Apr 4, 2023

            A:  No. Hard wood is dense deciduous species like oak, walnut, or hickory. Treated lumber is usually a coniferous species like Doug fir, hem fir, southern yellow pine...all soft woods.

                    It is easy to cut and the screws went in easy. Turned out to be a beautiful boardwalk.

                    The 1" x 4" PT wood was nice and straight without too many knots. They will be out side for several years. The material I purchase from Home Depot is always quality material and the always have enough stock to complete the projects I work on.

                    I bought four pieces for a project in my front yard, the only thing that I was not very happy about is that the wood had a lot of knots. Once was painted it looked OK.
