YellaWood® Deck Boards are KDAT!
KDAT stands for Kiln Dried After Treatment and it's a huge improvement over regular pressure treated lumber. KDAT explained
YellaWood® KDAT Pressure Treated Deck Boards give you the luxurious appeal of a composite or Cellular PVC deck while maintaining a completely natural look at a fraction of the price!
KDAT offers many advantages when compared with regular pressure treated decking. List of advantages
Prior to installation, keep YellaWood® Deck Boards elevated, covered and completely dry. Deck Boards must be painted, stained or sealed immediately after installation. Otherwise, moisture removed during kiln drying can be reabsorbed into the wood.
Sealant or stain with UV stabilizers will minimize the sun's impact. Stains should also include a water repellant in their formulation. If painting, use an oil-based primer (including on cut ends) followed with 2 coats of high quality acrylic latex.
Purchase by the foot or as a 3" Sample. Lengths shorter than 8' are not returnable unless defective.
Top edges rounded for superior appearance and almost no splintering.
Bottom of 1-3/8" size has stress relief groove to help reduce natural tendency of wood to cup. Overall length may be 1/4" shorter than listed but will be consistent for each shipment.
