Do i have to let my newly built pressure treated wood deck “DRY OUT” before staining and sealing it?


Do i have to let my newly built pressure treated wood deck “DRY OUT” before staining and sealing it?
The builder just finished it today. 5-31-09. I have heard you have to wait a year to let the wood “dry out” before staining and sealing the wood. Is that true OR can that be done sooner without harming the wood? Iv seen so many youtube vids about staining decks but nothing on a NEW deck…

  1. if you have a pressure treated deck then you have no worries about harming it …you cant!….here in the uk pressure treated timber is called tanilised …its a greeny colour …its rot-proof for 20 years ..we tend to leave it as it is ..no staining or sealing …although there is no reason why you cannot …if the deck has been down a week without rain then get on and do whatever you want ..you wont harm it

  2. A month should be sufficient before staining or sealing. Pressure treated wood is “treated’ by forcing the chemical into the wood under high pressure. It is done in a large tank, filled with liquid and then pressurized. This causes it to be wet when shipped to retailers.

  3. i would lke to paint some wood that is pressure treated.can i paint it and get a comparable look to it as the ajoining pine?what kind of preparation,if any beyond primer latex or oil.can you use primer of one kind and paint of another?i.e latex over oil primer and vice versa?

  4. I just had pressure treated wood stairs built for my front door. What is the best stain for treating it? Should I stain and then use Thompsons water seal, or should I buy a stain with water-seal in it?

  5. I bought a newly constructed house with a 10′ x 11′ deck attached of the kitchen. I don’t think it has been treated yet. My father says to do nothing – “todays pressure treated wood really needs nothing over time – its the asbestos of today” Thanks Dad! He says if I insist on sealing it to buy the product in NH, not MA, but his deck is 12 yrs old now and looks fine. (and he only bleaches it every few years) What do you think?

  7. After i replace the warped wood, i would have some new wood and some old wood, i want to repaint the whole deck, can i do that? or do i have to wait for the pressure treated wood to dry out? Thanks!

  8. Our fence is made of pressure treated wood and our dog repeatedly licks it and chews on it. What will happen if she doesn’t stop?
    It is still made with arsenic.
    Which is poisonous.

  9. We’re finishing part of our basement. I (now) realize that it’s normally required to use pressure-treated wood when framing walls on top of concrete. However, in our situation, the concrete has been tiled over. We kinda jumped the gun and began framing walls without using pressure-treated wood for the sole plates. Is this something that needs to be changed? We figured that, technically, the framing isn’t directly on top of the concrete.

  12. I just bought a house with a deck. Now I find out there is termites in the wood. I have to replace the deck, but I’m wondering if the footings would be ok to re-use if they were made with pressure treated wood. I don’t know if you can tell by the color, or if you can tell at all. Any advise is welcome.

  20. I have inherited a HUGE (4 feet across) staghorn fern and it needs a new basket so I can hang it in my tree. I was planning on making one with galvanized wire, but thought I might use pressure treated wood as a framework. Does anyone think the PT wood might poison or affect the plant?

  24. I have a wood paneled wall that frames a door at the end of a a hallway. The wood wall consists of unfinished wood pieces almost like a hardwood floor. How do I paint this wood to make it look like the rest of the walls in the hallway ? Can I cover it with some type of paper and paint the paper so it has the same texture as the drywall ? What about the corner where the wood meets the existing finished drywall – how do you make it looks smooth ?

However, no matter how careful I am, I end up with the stain running to the opposite side. I can’t turn it over to brush it out because the top is still wet. After it dries and I turn it over, I have ugly runs on the unfinished side, which are nearly impossible to cover. What can I do to prevent this?

  202. I bought a newly constructed house with a 10′ x 11′ deck attached of the kitchen. I don’t think it has been treated yet.

  227. My third child is teething and drools a lot. If she drools on light clothing there are bluish-gray stains when the clothes come out of the wash where the drool landed. You can’t see them before hand to pre-treat. They only show up after being laundered and sometimes don’t come out when re-washed with stain removers. What is causing this staining? She’s not on formula and hasn’t been for months! My other two kids never had this issue.

  255. I called the Acura dealer about the Acura RDX, and they said that the RDX is a crossover, and it is built on a car frame. I also called the Volvo dealer about the Volvo XC-90, and they said that it is built on a car frame, but it is an SUV (not a crossover). I always thought that an SUV is built on a truck frame, and any vehicle that resembles an SUV built on a car frame is a crossover. How is it that the Volvo XC-90 is still classified as an SUV even though it is built on a car frame? What other criteria are there for a vehicle to be classified as a crossover besides being an SUV-resembling vehicle built on a car frame?

  259. Back in the Civil War Era (a little before, during, and after the civil war), how were white Creoles treated? Were they considered white in other peoples’ eyes? Also, did Creoles own black Creoles in plantations, and what are white creoles a mix of?

  260. Hi, I have had some skirting boards and doors fitted and I want then to keep their natural wood look but think they need a little something. What is the difference between staining and varnishing, do you do one or the other or are they part of the same proceudure? What is the best/quickest method to get good results and can you use these methods over wood filler where there is small gaps in the wood? Thanks

  261. I’m looking for a wood that won’t sag over time or be extremely heavy. I was told to stay away from partical board (will sag) and plywood (way to heavy). I want to stain the wood, not paint it white or anything like that so I need a wood that looks nice also. I was told to use a solid hardwood but I can’t seem to find ‘sheets’ of wood wide enough to build an entertainment system. Any info (along with websites that sell the stuff) would be appreciated.

  262. I need to stain at least 4000 bamboo skewers black (or very rich brown). I’m not too familiar with staining methods. Is there a way I could do this quickly and easily?

    Can I thin a wood stain and let the skewers soak in it for a while, wiping them down as I take them out of the solution? Will water based or oil based stain work better?

  296. We’re finishing part of our basement. I (now) realize that it’s normally required to use pressure-treated wood when framing walls on top of concrete. However, in our situation, the concrete has been tiled over. We kinda jumped the gun and began framing walls without using pressure-treated wood for the sole plates. Is this something that needs to be changed? We figured that, technically, the framing isn’t directly on top of the concrete.

  297. I just bought a house with a deck. Now I find out there is termites in the wood.

  301. I was wondering how much it would cost to build a deck off the side of my house, about 500 square feet on a hillish slope– nothing severe but there is a slope.

  381. Hi from Ohio. Just installed new rail fence (pressure-treated wood so we can’t stain for 9 months). Neighbor puts his sprinkler right next to it, and allows a good amount of water to hit (eventually soak) it for hours at a time.

    Big deal? or am I overreacting? I’ve kindly asked him to stop & he says I’m being petty.

  382. If you have a 10 foot long 2×4 of pressure treated wood and cut it vertically to make it two 10 foot long 2×2′s, are they still 100% pressure treated? Is the pressure treating all teh way through the wood so when it is cut in half vertically, even the cut side is still pressure treated and safe from weather?

  383. I am building a huge play for in my backyard and plan on using pressure treated wood for most of it, especially the structural parts. I was hoping to use another type of wood however for the parts of the fort that my kids will be in contact the most to avoid splinters and such (flooring, side panels etc.). Would cedar be my best choice for this or is there a better kind of wood for this type of project?

  388. My front porch is made with pressure-treated wood. It is stained a dark brown color. One day I realized there was a section on one piece of wood that looked “bubbly” and when I stepped on it, it felt sticky, almost like pine pitch. What could be causing this? This bubbly, sticky area only appears on one piece of wood. The porch is about 10′ x 20′ in size. Also, it is in direct sunlight all day long if that makes a difference. Thanks.

  391. Hi, we are in the process of building a large deck and we are using pressure treated lumber. Can you stain this with any color you want, like to match the siding on the house? What type of stain is the best, brand names? They say you should not stain it for a year, is that true, please give me the run down on what to do with this. I want this deck to last for a long, long time! Thanks folks!

  392. I want to make a fence with 3 different sized planks. You know when wood is measured say 2xa4 or 2×8 etc and how long are they? Thanks so much.
    Also is pressure treated wood available in planks?
    I want to make a raised vegetable bed with them too.
    I live in Ireland so would have to be measurements recognised here. Thanks

  393. I have a front porch that has a pressure treated floor. The house is 14 years old, so the wood is not fresh. But over the course of time, someone has painted this deck (floor). Now some of the paint is peeling off. Not all of it.

    I have been reading that stain is what you should use on pressure treated wood.

    I think I am beyond that option because most of the paint is still intact. I have scrapped all the loose stuff off an now have a variegated porch floor.

    So what paint should I use?

    Thanks

  395. I recently did a deck for someone and used Cedar decking on the entire deck. They asked me (2 months later) if I used pressure treated wood. After looking up pressure treated wood, I found nothing regarding pressure treated cedar. Infact, I found only websites about the differences between cedar and pressure treated wood. Am I right that there is no such thing as pressure treated cedar?
    I did have to fix a few areas of framing but the lumber guys just gave me 6×6 cedar for this.

  396. Should I use Millstead pressure treated wood or Spartanburg thompsonized timber?
    Who cares at what time I am building this. Plus its a lot cooler than it would be if I built it during the day.

  397. What I have is a by-product of paper processing which is clean pine wood chips. The pieces are larger than sawdust but smaller than bark chips. Not pressure treated wood but just natural pine. Who would you sell a truckload to? To make what?

  398. The house we are seeking to buy has a walk-out basement, finished by the owner. He used untreated 2×4′s where the wall framing contacts the concrete floor. Is the lack of pressure-treated wood a problem?

  399. I have a bookshelf that is raw, unfinished, pressure treated wood (it’s a really nasty color, but really sturdy and great!). I want to stain it a deep brown and have the finished result be matte, but smooth, finished surface. I mostly want to confirm what I feel that I already may know.

    - Do I need to sand the surface to provide tooth or not?
    - Can I do one coat with one product to get the result? What would that product be (polyurethane + stain in one)?
    - If I can’t do it in one coat, what do I do exactly?

  400. I grew up in the midwest and have always been accustomed to using pressure treated wood for building anything outdoors but since I’ve moved to a desert climate I’ve been seeing and getting advice to just use white/non treated doug fir. Does anyone have any input on this? We get very little rain out here. Can I just seal non treated wood every couple years and be good?

  401. Okay we are building a small deck in our back yard. I DO NOT want to use pressure treated wood do the the concern of poisons in the Wood. We have a dog and she is very important to me.
    I found Trex online and like the fact that it is a Synthetic wood that looks unbelievably real.
    I also like that it’s smooth and no chance of splinters and that its better for the environment.
    But how much more expensive would it been than using wood.

    Thanks

  402. Had a new pressure-treated wood deck surface placed last week. Unsure if it is pine or fir. Need to find out if I can stain it. If so, what kind of preparation involved.

  403. I have recently had a ramp built for my walker, to provide acess to my home.The pressure treated wood is very slippery when wet.I have been told you can not put non-slip paint on pressure treated lumber until it weathers at least 6 months.What can I do in the meantime?

  406. I am putting up a pergola. I made concrete footings with a metal base which the post will sit on. I needed to know if I need pressure treated wood or will regular redwood with a sealer suffice.

  407. we have just purchased a house that has an outside deck made with pressure treated wood. the deck is about 10 years old. there appears to be a large oil stain from a candle on the wood. we are preparing the deck to be painted. the stain is about a foot in diameter. what will work to remove the rest of the wax and the oil it has left behind to ensure the paint will stick?

  408. I want to downsize, and can only afford to buy a long pressure treated wood storage building. I will have to add insulation, electrical, and water systems, but I would like to know if a person can live in an outdoor storage shed. If anyone has the answer please let me know.

  409. specifically, i’m building a cantilevered deck.
    quite high off the ground.
    and thought i’d use pressure treated 2x8s for joists.
    until one of the ends i cut off just fell apart in my hands.
    now i’m more than a little worried.

    i’ve been looking for an hour, and can’t find any sites that show me how the strength of pressure treated wood changes.

    ARGH !!!!!!!

  410. I was wondering how much it would cost to build a deck off the side of my house, about 500 square feet on a hillish slope– nothing severe but there is a slope. I ask how much it would cost with pressure treated wood because I have been under the impression that’s the most economical material.

    Thanks in advance!

  412. My bench was built to finish a porch my husband built last summer, and sadly he passed away in the spring. The bench was signed with a “sharpie” by friends at the funeral as a memorial – now I need to seal it to preserve the writing and the pressure treated wood. Any suggestions?
    my local hardware store guy said I needed to wait a year to seal this with anything, because it’s pressure treated. What do you think?

  416. I want to have a fence installed in my yard. I have been researching a bit and found on the web that pressure treated cedar and red wood are the best wood for fencing because it has a longer life. That being said, the fencing companies that came to my home to give me an estimate told me that pressure treated pine will last longer than pressure treated cedar. I am a bit confused and any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  417. As I prepare to finish my basement, I have one thing that the guys at Lowe’s couldn’t really answer completely. Do I *have* to use pressure treated wood on basement concrete… or is that mainly for external concrete applications. If I’m getting moisture on my basement floor (needing pressure treated wood), then I have bigger problems.

    So, if no moisture issues, can I use just regular studs?

    Thanks

  418. Also how long should i let the primer on before applying foundation or is there a need to let it wait?

    Also if i should moisturise before, how long should i wait before applying the primer?

I just want time to prepare in case one happens.

  422. How soon should I talk to realtors before I’m actually ready to sell? Also, do you recommend working with a different agent (such as a specialty Buyer’s agent) to buy my next house?

    I intend to sell my current home before going to contract on my next home, even though I don’t carry a mortgage. I’m weighing buying a condo that I can customize directly from a builder.

    Also – have you ever heard of hiring someone to manage the move? I’m not looking forward to the move, packing, putting some stuff in storage, arranging for utiility shut-off and turn-on, mail forwarding, etc. I’d love to be able to turn it over to someone else. If you can hire someone to do this, where do you find them and how much does it cost?

  423. We have yogurt, milk, chesse, sliced meats that all have best before dates. But if it’s not consumed before the *best before* dates. What’s an average time in days it may last after that date.

  424. Two months before graduation I started my job search and I havent heard back from anyone in two weeks. I wonder if they can’t hire me because I haven’t graduated yet.

    But I want to get a job before I graduate. Should I start looking one month before I graduate or is it a waste of time.

  425. My deck is 27 years old. Built well with pressure treated wood and never cleaned or had sealer put on. Now the foundation of the deck is still good, but some boards have rotted parts and nails popping out. A good contractor agreed to replace the decking, railings and stairs for $9000. That seems really steep to me despite this being a high cost labor area. My neighbor fixed his by turning over the boards and replacing some. He did this himself, but said the work was extremely difficult and does not recommend it.
    My idea is to pound in the nails and then cover the whole deck with with thick astroturf. I hope that I can afford to sell the house in two to 10 years, when sales are better, so that big $9000 bill is not something I want to spend if there is a less expensive way. What do you think of my idea and can I do it myself? (I am pretty old and not too clever with a hammer, although willing to try)
    Thanks.

  426. I find myself looking up animals for months before I purchase them.

    I am also curious if splinters or cuts from the wood would be harmful.

  455. Its my front porch. Completely covered except the steps up from the sidewalk.

    Thank you for your advice and expertise!

  456. I’m doing an Eagle project and I need to have some kind mini biography inside of a display case next to a landmark. It will be outside in the open. I want to build something that’s not going to be destroyed by the weather, like a display you’d see at a park or something explaining why this cave or whatever is important.

    Would pressure treated wood work?
    What material should the “glass” kind of it be? I was thinking Plexiglas but I need something durable
    Where could I find instructions to build something like this?

  457. I was told the bottom board of the 2×4 stud walls should be pressure treated wood. I am concerned about this. Will the walls rot. I have been told that as long as the basement cement floor is dry it should last for a very, very, long time 50+ years

  458. The deck is 2 years old and is made of pressure treated wood. I don’t want to damage it if I can avoid it. Also, since the wood got waterproofed last year, in some areas it looks almost blackish. I’m told that’s what happens after waterproofing. The wood on the railings is most affected and the discoloration is inconsistent compared to the wood on the floor of the deck which grayed, but looks good because it just looks weathered, not dirty. Any advise for cleaning and future care would be appreciated.

  459. 1.) Does pressure treated wood need varnish or shellac or something?
    2.) What varnish or similar product can I use that I can buy in small quantities, would preserve the wood, and would be easily applied?
    3.) Would it be OK to apply it the day after a rain storm? Would it be better to apply the day before or the day after rain? Unfortunately, I don’t live there, and there are scheduling constraints…

    It is like a deck, but is smaller and temporary, so doesn’t have to look as pretty. It will be near redwood color painted wood, brick, and green painted wood.

  460. I just recently restained my outdoor that is made of pressure treated wood and must be at least 25 to 30 years old. I would like to know what product I can use that will help me to prolong having to stain the deck. Thank you.

  462. i am about to start building a deck behind my garage and was wondering how important it was to get pressured .treated wood. i keep reading that the chemicals in the pressure treating itself maybe pretty harmful. so i guess my question really is if i was planning on staining my deck anyway does it matter if i get pressure treated or just regular lumber?

  463. My friends and I are planning to go on a week long camping trip here in Florida in a few months and one of my buddies warned me those snakes like to hang around where we’re going.
    How long would it take before the venom kills you?? The hospital isn’t exactly close by and it would really **** if our trip ended with someone dying. Also, is there any way we could take anti-venom with us in case someone does get bit? Like can you buy it anywhere? Thanks

  464. I am installing trail signs at a local state park for an eagle project and I was wondering if I should seal the pressure treated wood I am using. If yes then how long should I wait for the wood to dry? Also I’m planning on painting the lettering so should I seal before or after the the lettering paint is applied?

  465. Hii, I’m just wondering how long before to start buying things for my dorm, for clothing, and for necessities ?

    Like how many months before the date you leave would be a good time to start?
    Haha i’m not buying clothes cause I need them for climate, I just love fashion :)

  466. My parents shed and fence was last treated over 10 years ago and I want to spruce it them up and protect it from any further weathering for my mother. My late father always used garden creosote in a reddy-brown colour. (there is still some in the cellar, so I know it’s NOT that creosote substitute stuff). I know it has been banned so I want to use an alternative fence and shed treatment.

    Both the fence and shed are fairly smooth from the weathering and neither are pressure treated wood as this was not readily available when the shed and fence were built.
    I thought this would be simple but most of the product descriptions for all of the garden timbercare stuff says “not suitable for smooth or weathered wood”.

    So, what can I use that will cover the patches of old garden creosote and that can be used on smooth / well weathered wood?
    I know this, but what will it bleed through? water based products? solvent based products? Or both?

  467. About a month ago I burned a piece of pressure treated wood not knowing that it was dangerous. I have now read online how to clean up the ashes. I am wondering though if the bricks around my fire pit are safe from the chemicals or if I should replace them?

  468. Before Instagram updated, you could choose a effect before taking the picture and when you thought it was okay , you could capture it and it has the effect. Now you have to take the picture and than add the effect.

  469. I’ve caught a plane before, but I sat near the back, so I wasn’t aware of the doors closing because I was boarded early on to get to my seat before other passengers started getting in (yes, they let me on before departure time.

  484. We have a deck made with pressure treated wood. The builder told us it does not need to be stained because it’s pressure treated. We asked another builder, a friend, who told us the same thing.

    Now after two years a friend of mine came over and told me “you should really stain this deck otherwise 2 years from now you will have to replace the whole thing”.

    I freaked out – don’t want to replace anything just yet! – and wonder who is right and what should we do now?

    (I don’t know much about wood but it’s a green wood I’m talking about, very popular in my area).

  489. An outdoor deck measuring 7’ X 28’ made of pressure-treated
    wooddoesn’t get much wear, but is exposed to much sun and
    rain. The deckwas painted professionally less than two years
    ago with an oil-based primer followed by a water-based paint,
    but the paint and primer are peeling off in many places leaving bare wood. What do I do now to get a deck the same color as the house, without having to repaint every two years?
    It has been suggested that I use opaque stain instead of paint.
    Will this solve the problem? If so, how do I remove the old paint? Sanding? Power-washing? Scraping with a brush? Scraping with a metal scraper?

  490. I had a fence built about 3 weeks ago… I live in central florida and there has not been a lot of rain. The fence is wood picket(1X4′), with 4x4posts and 2X4 running boards all supposedly pressure treaten “yellawood”.. I understand that wood is wood, and will behave like wood, but it is less then 30 days and 4 of the top running 2X4′s are bowing outward very badly. Is this normal? The company that built the fence said not to stain/seal it for 60 days… I just need some advise before I call them back upset..( I didn’t mention that they broke my neighbors sprinkler line too).

  491. I’m going to cut to the chase:

    Right now we’re headed towards buying Trex for redoing our deck. No problems there.

    We live in Kansas, so the summers get HOT. From July-September, it’s not unheard of for us to reach over 100 degrees. In our new house (THAT WE CLOSE ON TOMORROW!!!!!!) we are noticing that our deck won’t have much shade.

    How does Trex compare with pressure treated wood decks with heat retention?

    In other words: if we were to walk barefoot across a Trex deck that had just spent a long time in the summer sun, would we be as burned as with pressure treated wood?

  492. We’re making a toothpick bridge for a physics project and we heard about pressure treated wood. We’re wondering how to do that, especially with toothpicks. We’d also like to know what kinds of household liquids would be best to use to make our toothpicks stronger. Please note that we plan to use a pressure cooker, and we wouldn’t want to put anything like chlorine in it.

  493. I’m building a time capsule in one of my art courses, and if I intend to bury this box I’ll need some way to ensure the wood will last through at least a year or so.
    We’re using poplar wood, and I have no idea how durable it is. Is there a good way to prep the wood for burial? Waterproofing, sealing, or anything like that?
