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.

Is it okay to set deck boards out in the sun for 30 days before installation to avoid gapping from shrinkage when installed?
Asked by: Firstdeck
When I picked these boards up they were pretty wet. I asked the guy at HD about this and he said just install them wet with minimal to no spacing. If you leave them out in the sun in an uncontrolled environment they are likely to warp and won't be straight.

5/4 in. x 6 in. x 8 ft. Ground Contact Pressure-Treated Premium Pine Decking Board is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not 8 feet long! 8 ft is 96 inches. These are 95 3/4. Wasted 15 3/4 of each board because they are short

I bought a good amount of the 5/4in Weathershield Premium Pine Decking and the product is far from "premium". First of all, you may as well block of a good 4 hours to sift through the pile at the store to find any usable pieces. I started out looking for good pieces and end up settling for usable. This is basically the only option for pressure treated pine at Home Depot and it is pitiful. I bought enough for a 10' by 20' deck and many of the pieces had loose knots or were splitting. Most of the usable pieces I found still had many knots but they were intact and flush with the rest of the board. In addition, many of the boards are slightly warped which increases the install time significantly. It was very difficult to get consistent spacing between boards because of the poor quality and warping. Many boards had to be cut down to 6 or 4 feet to be usable resulting in significant waist. This is a relatively cheap product and did work for my project but it was painful and disappointing. It is 2018, Home Depot should be able to find better suppliers that can deliver a good product and that have good quality control. I am hopeful that this product is able to hold up long term now that it is installed.
