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. Treated for protection against fungal decay, rot and termites, it is ideal for ground contact and a variety of general uses including exposed structures, sill plates, decks, docks, ramps and other outdoor applications. Responsibly manufactured from renewable southern yellow pine, this lumber is both safe and environmentally friendly when used as directed in appropriate applications.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.

    A:  Jackie - Yes, wood may warp, cup, and twist over time. To limit movement in your deck boards we suggest staining or painting them.

          Bought twenty of these boards as I needed 3 foot section to complete project. 6/2=3 if they were 6 foot. Unfortunately most of them came in just under 6 foot. Home Depot explained to me lumber measurements are not perfect. Most lumber I buy is just over the actual measurement, never under. Anyway, good quality, just make sure it meets your specifications. Friendly folks at Home Depot, just cost me a tad bit more than it should have.

          Almost half of the boards had split ends over 6 inches long.

          Dear Charles, we are sorry to hear this product did not meet your expectations. Treated wood is typically still wet when it's delivered to our retailers. As lumber dries, it may split, cup and warp, which are natural occurrences of wood. If you would like the opportunity to discuss the issue further, please reach out to UFP Retail Solutions at UFPRetailCS@UFPI.com, referencing this review, and one of our customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.

          Looks like great wood, was a little disappointed that the thickness varied by a fair amount. Unfortunately did not notice until after i had cut to fit .
