pressure treated lumber - Painting Question

You will hear many different answers
Regardless of what the sales-person says, or what a lucky individual may say, the truth is, it needs to season as much as it needs to, to accept the primer and coating
If you let it season for at least three months (and do it properly), you won't have a problem
