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 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.

Great board, I have used it for both decking and carpentry. Most boards on the pile are generally in good shape (no bad bends) and appearance is good. It is generally wet from pressure treating so it takes screws without pre-drilling (at least 1.5" or greater from edges). I do not gap this boards when wet for decking, when they shrink (dry) they gap on their own. Do not stain or paint these boards for several months until they have dried out.

Boards were not straight, some ends were more narrow than others, and there was way too much shrinkage after only being down a week. If the boards shrink anymore, I'm going to have to pull it all up and start again.

Good quality for the money. Some knots and splits, I do suggest to pull the order yourself, I ordered online had about 10 that were not the greatest, had to re-think my design so not to use the full board. Worth to buy them over the "Premium", the cost savings out weigh the extra work setting them.
