2×8 Treated Lumber as Deck Boards?

DIY Questions and Answer October 9, 2014 Sonia

Q: Can I use 2×8 treated lumber as deck boards?

A: No, that’s a not a good idea. Lumber wider than 6 inches should not be used as a flat surface. Wide, flat boards have a tendency to pool rain water, which can lead to cupping problems. Stick with 2×6 or 5/4 deck boards.
