Exterior grade lumber

Recommended Posts

This lumber is being used for an outside deck. It looks like standard construction grade and nothing that should be used outside. Do these stamps determine location use?  I did a quick walk-by and will look at the house tomorrow.  

Typical pressure-treated lumber is tagged at the end of each piece with treatment info.

As far as I know there's nothing stating that it cant' be used. It just needs to be well stained and sealed. I see quite a few decks built with untreated wood, personally I would use treated wood for the joists and beams.
