How To Seal Cut Ends Of Pressure Treated Lumber?
hey everybody I’m here today to show you
how to seal the cut ends of
pressure-treated lumber so as you can
see right here I have an end of some
pressure treated lumber and I have cut
on this end so this piece of lumber was
longer and I made a cut right here so by
making that cut I have exposed this wood
this face of the wood without any
pressure treated product on it so I’m
going to show you how to seal it with
some new pressure treated product so
what I have here is some basically some
it’s called cut and seal but it is
basically the pressure treated stuff
that is put on the wood so I’m going to
open up this can and just two quick tips
1 the first quick tip is to wear gloves
because you definitely don’t want to get
this stuff on your hands or on your body
parts and the second quick tip is to try
and find the pressure treated product
that matches the color of the pressure
treatment on the wood so this right here
matches the color of the pressure
treatment that is already on the wood so
once you have opened up the can you are
going to take your paintbrush dip it in
the pressure treatment stuff right there
and then just wipe it on to the exposed
area of the wood like that and make sure
that you get a good amount on there
because you really want to protect the
lumber that is the goal of of doing this
so just get it right on there just like
that and make sure that you not only
cover the face like that but make sure
that you also run the brush along these
edges because that is an area that a lot
of people miss because they usually just
paint it onto the face but they don’t
really focus on the edges so just make
sure that you go along the edges as well
in the corners that’s basically it once
you have finished doing that you can put
on the tin and that’s it you can pretty
much just let this dry and it is ready
to be used once it has dried and that’s
basically all the Third’s to it that is
how you seal the cut ends of
pressure-treated lumber and that’s all I
have for you today thanks for watching
