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 Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This 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.
  • 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

How many 1x6x10 boards do i need for a 20x40deck

Asked by Jason October 5, 2020
2
Answers

Jason, Each board is approximately 5.5 in. or .46 ft (5.5/12=.46). Each board covers .46 ft. x 10 ft. length = 4.6 sq. ft. of coverage per board. For a 20 x 40 deck, you are going to need to cover 800 sq. ft. 800/4.6 = 173.9 boards, for a minimum of 174 boards. This does not take into account waste, etc., but is a good starting point.

Answer

Susan, I’m not sure when Home Depot will have this board in, but I can tell you that the 10’ length is not stocked as much as the 8’ or the 12’. I’m not sure why that is, but if you are in a rush and the minimum length needed is 10’ you may want to get the 12’. Dave

I cannot respond to that because i have not attempted to do so. However I would suggest that you make sure it is completely dry if you stain the wood.
