pressure treated wood
we just had new pressure treated wood put up and i was wondering how long it had to sit before it could be painted?

This totally depends on your location and the wood's location and how 'wet' it is. I've left some more than a year before it was 'dry' enough to trust painting.

i have always waited a year before I painted and never experienced any problems. :thumbsup:

I've been advised by my painter friends -
6 months minimum.
They do have paint/stain available, that supposedly can be applied
right away.
Not sure if I would do it, though.
