Hello all I have tried to get a reply with this question on a number of sites. Hope it works here.
I am presently constructing a deck using .40 PT ACQ lumber and using G185 rated connectors and HDG nails. I was wondering about corrosion rates. The PT boards were purchased still wet from a local lumberyard a few days ago. My concern is when I repositioned a fastner due to a mistake, I noticed that the nails had turned a dark grey where they had been in the wood and a slight coloration on the side of the wood that touched the tie for just two days. Will this continue or is it just an indication of intial corriosion that will abate once the boards are air dried? Im hoping I am just worrying about nothing. My first deck! Thanks
