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.

Balusters & Spindles

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 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
  • 5/4 in. x 6 in. x 10 ft.
  • Must use ground contact pressure treated lumber where lumber is at risk for poor air circulation, less than 6 in. from the ground or has poor or no water drainage below the structure
  • Ground contact treated lumber should be used in tropical climates or applications likely to have prolonged contact with vegetation or leaf litter
  • 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.
  • Premium grade lumber should be used when small knots are the desired appearance for your lumber project
  • Premium grade is a high-quality lumber that has smaller and fewer knots.

When will this be available again? It seems to be out of stock everywhere I've looked.

Asked by Rott August 8, 2020

Answer

The raw materials to finished lumber process has all been hit hard with the pandemic. The supply chain to get trees to the mill to be processed into standard lumber as well as secondary lumber sizes has been slow to restart. You will have to talk to your local Store Manager to see when supplies are in the process to be shipped to your store. One option to consider is to order online and if the materials are available in the warehouses it can ship to your store.

Answers

I'm not sure what they normally use for wood on fences like that, but not sure why they couldn't be. Painted and sealed they should be fine. Only concern would be that they are not supported and might tend to twist or warp.

Great flooring material for longevity! I am using what I purchased for a shed floor since we all know what happens to plywood floors out in the elements I am building to last! Most of the boards are perfect no twisting bending etc. just had 2 that had a slight curve and fairly clean wood with less knots than I expected. I considered plywood to cover a 10’x8’ at $94+ tax or this which was only $20 more it will last longer and looks better with NO wasted Half!

Boards I purchased were great and installed without issues. Most of the boards have one really good side and the other side has some runout or dings, perfectly fine for the underside. Would have given a 5th star if the numerous boards that I had to dig through were in better condition.
