Do I have to use a2" x 6" as a base if the deck is directly on the ground? Or can I use a 2" × 4" base?

Asked by Mark May 6, 2017
1
Answer

Don't build directly on the ground. It will rot in a few years even if it's treated lumber.

Will sanding jeopardize the integrity of the treatment?

Asked by Treefortommy June 6, 2016

Answers

Yes. The retention of preservative gets lower as you get further into the interior of the piece. Very light sanding should not have much effect however.

Why is so much of the pretreated lumber so wet?

Asked by Tweaver1945 November 30, 2015
1
Answer

Lumber is treated and shipped within a few days of the process. Because the moisture content is still very high when it is shipped, it drys slowly over time when stored indoors.

Can I use this lumber in an "indoor" application?

Asked by BOB September 14, 2015
1
Answer

Yes. MCA-treated lumber is safe and acceptable for indoor use.

How much will this lumber shrink?

1
Answer

Typically treated lumber decking at The Home Depot has a high moisture level and can be installed directly next to each other or with a small gap (side by side). Install with no gap from end to end.

If it's #2 Prime, how can you make the claim that "Every piece meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance"?

Asked by George August 14, 2015
1
Answer

The grade and design values are based on the SPIB Grading Rules. This #2 lumber is recommended for most general construction uses where moderately high design values are required. All knots are well-spaced — one main factor when determining design strength.

The stock at HD is remarkably irregular after milling. Go anywhere else. Look behind your Grandma's garage, pick up driftwood at the beach, cut down a tree yourself. Anything truly is better than their hoopty-wood.

I bought around 200 of these for my fence that was installed on my land, they were attached to 6"...
I bought around 200 of these for my fence that was installed on my land, they were attached to 6" x 6" x 8' post every 8 feet. You would think that most of them would be somewhat straight and maybe just a little warped. Wrong!!! There were probably 20% of what I bought that were very warped. The guys I hired used them anyway without me knowing and now they are popping the 9 gauge screws out because of the warped wood. I went to a Home Depot that was farther out because the store that was close to me were out of stock. The store was in Greenville Tx. and I needed another 40 pieces of the 2 x 6's. The guy made sure every piece that I received was straight. I really appreciated this as the store where I bought most of my wood and have spent several thousands of dollars never did this. Now I need to replace all the boards that are so bad a screw will not even stay in them let alone try to get it somewhat straight.

Horrible
This wood was my biggest mistake. It started warping after two days and when it rained it got worse. I put up about 15 ffeet of fence and I have to replace it. I rather weatherproof the wood myself. With what I paid for this I could've finished the entire side of my fence and weatherproof it using other lumber. Bad purchase. Do not recommend I prefer to give 0 stars but had to give it a 1 star
