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.

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.

              Dear HomeDepotCustomer, we are sorry to hear this lumber did not meet your expectations. We can assure you that this lumber is pressure-treated. To protect your lumber from the elements, we recommend using a semitransparent stain or a sealant which contains a water repellant and an ultraviolet stabilizer. The stabilizer will not prevent eventual discoloration to a weathered appearance, but it will slow the process down. Periodic maintenance is also needed by applying cleaner/brightener every one to three years, depending on the appearance of your outdoor project, followed by a coat of sealer to rejuvenate the color of the wood. If you would like the opportunity to discuss this further, please reach out to us at UFPRetailCS@UFPI.com, referencing this review, and one of our customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.

                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.

                Not always most perfect wood but for deck steps or a plant stand it served the purpose.
