Can you paint pressure treated wood?
I'd like to know can you paint pressure treated wood? We recently did some rennovating and we used pressure treated wood in 2 places: in our basement and for our new deck. Originally I thought that I would like the raw wood look, but in both places now I'm having second thoughts. In the basement I would liek to paint the PT wood white, to match the rest of the room. And my hubby wants to stain the deck to give it a richer look. But we aren't sure can pressure treated wood be painted? We installed it without the intention of changing anything, so we never thought about this, and the surface seems different than plain wood, so we are wondering if it's a mistake to go ahead and paint or stain PT wood normally. Has anyone here ever painted pressure treated wood? How did it turn out for you? Are there special precautions, directions, or products that need to be used? Please advise. Thank you!
