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.

    Q:are contact pressure treated boards paintable
    by|Mar 13, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Stringer, 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.

            The deck looks good. However, be careful even though these boards are naturally formed, you may get a stack, and several are of low quality. Any amount over 10 pieces, go with a contractor, or pick them out yourself.

            Nice! The planks were fairly consistent and sat outside for a few days prior to the project with no warping. They have a simple, pleasing look and were a light weight that was easy to handle by myself. They do have an ink stamp on one side, which constrained how I oriented them a bit, and one had bleed from the stamps on both sides; I imagine it could be sanded out. There's some natural variation in the contour of the long edges, but I had very good luck getting them lined up consistently, and it tended to average out over an entire deck; I didn't have to mix and match to get a good result too often. I was very pleased with the result, and I think all of us were a bit surprised at how well it came out!

            Product was straight and good quality. Now the kid that was running the saw couldn’t cut a board to save his life. Ended up with various cuts and had to correct the cuts which added time to my project

              Just be aware that Home Depot will not honor your warranty on treated wood it you do not keep every little tab on the end of the board. We had some rot and they will not honor warranty. So just be aware.

              Will have to wait to see how the deck boards hold up over time. There were more knot holes and bad edges than I would like but if you pick and choose your boards when purchased, you should be OK. A few boards were really floppy and deflected more than desired between the under frame cross members so these were replaced immediately with a stiffer board. It has only been installed for a couple of weeks so it will be ten years before I can say how good they hold up.
