A:  Hi Kick, You sure can stain this lumber, but give it plenty of time to dry so that you're not trying to add more fluid to something that is already chock full of fluid to begin with. As you might have seen in the product specifications near the bottom of the product page, this wood is green - certainly not kiln-dried, and not even plain old dry.

Q:How may would i need for 325 sq ft areq
by|May 31, 2020

A:  measure how wide and long your project is. then divide the width of one board into that width to see how many boards you need. you would have to consider how many lengths you could obtain from one board as well. if your 325 sq ft project were a square, each side would be 18.02775637731995 ft, or 216.3330765278394 inches . divide 216.3330765278394 by the width of the boards, in inches, that you will be using. the square root of 325 = 18.02775637731995.

A:  if everything is perfect you would need 53 pcs of the 2*10*8'. this doesn'/t take into account the material lost in cutting and gaps needed if any. you will probably have a mistake cut somewhere in there. you won't be able to use every bit of every board typically. figure 10% more minimum if you don't want to run back and forth to the store. boards are cheaper than time.

Q:is this safe for raise vegetable garden bed?
by|May 7, 2020

A:  No, it is chemically treated. Use cedar instead.

by|May 3, 2024

A:  I would think you would need something treated for outdoors

by|Mar 2, 2021

A:  this would not be an issue. if you are worried about the chemicals in the board leeching into the soil for the vegetables-line the area with black not clear plastic sheet. this will prevent contact. this treated lumber can handle direct contact with soil-wet or dry for a long time.

by|Mar 20, 2021

A:  The basic answer is yes. Years ago this was not possible but todays PTW is far less toxic and is even hard to measure any impact in plants. The second best route is to use a strong wood sealer to lock in any treatments and lock out water. The best decison in my opinion is to use PTW for support posts and regular sealed wood or composite products like decking material for walls and bases.

A:  Yes, this pressure-treated lumber is safe to use for a raised vegetable garden.

Q:can you use this to put your Soffit/ fascia up?
by|Apr 18, 2020

A:  this is an awfully big and heavy board for soffit and facia. normally a 1*6 is used

by|May 4, 2020

A:  You could use it for fascia and other exterior applications. This is thicker than any one I have seen use on soffits. It is very heavy compared to 1/4", 1/2" thick treated lumber or aluminum or vinyl.

by|May 13, 2020

A:  Save, What follows are some recommendations for products that other Home Depot customers have used for fascia boards. None of these may be exact matches for what you need, but they are worth considering/will give you some direction. If these are not going to do the job (It's too much work/cutting to make them fit the space, too heavy, etc.), we suggest that you contact one of the PROs at Home Depot in the lumber department for a recommendation of what most people in your area use. Products to consider: Primed Cedar Finger-Jointed Edge-Glued Fascia (Common: 1 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.75 in. x 3.5 in. x 96 in.) by UFP-Edge, Internet #313571491, Model #418926, Store SKU #1005490272; 1/2 in. x 6 in x 16 ft. Lap Siding Pressure-Treated Lumber Internet #202093906, Model #481277, Store SKU #481277; 2 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. Trim Board Primed Wood Fascia ( Actual: 1.375 in. x 3.375 in. x 96 in.) Internet #313571488; Model #415313 Store SKU #348018; Trim Board J-Grade Select Fascia (Common: 2 in. x 6 in. x 16 ft.; Actual: 1.375 in. x 5.37 in. x 192 in.) Internet #100014046, Model #805157, Store SKU #805157. As its name implies, this last product is made to be used as fascia, but exterior usage is only if the wood is primed/painted or stained. If you are the type of person who has no issue with maintaining those higher-up areas of your home, this sounds like it might be the material for you. If, however, you do not have the time/inclination, etc., to keep this painted or stained, we would suggest a pressure-treated board.
