If you're looking on line for pricing, that's fine; however, you HAVE to go to the store and pick out your own pieces...if you let the associate pick the pieces/number you are ordering, you will not get quality pieces. I am using these for a bench, so I was fine w the 1-2 pieces that were not solid, but if you are using them as posts, you must choose your own. Not all are created equal.

Review 3 for 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber
If you look at the pictures of the 4x4 timbers you might buy you'll notice the end grain on all of them are the center of the log thus they are the last cut from the tree and warping twisting and checking/cracks are very common as the center of the tree is the least stable....so take your time picking your stock for your individual needs....Hope I helped ya a bit....
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install

Review 5 for 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber
I bought these 4x4x8 posts to put up a privacy fence in June of 2010. I noticed in the summer of 2013 the fence was leaning and when I checked the posts had all put rotted right at ground level. Now I need to replace 13 of these posts. I would NOT recommend this PROWOOD pressure treated product to anyone.

Review 6 for 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber
We ordered several of these for a fence / dog kennel project and we ordered online. We usually load them ourselves but an associate did help us and I didn't get to inspect them like I wanted. When we arrived home most of them were straight with the exception of a few that had a light twist to them but one in particular was extremely curved and we live thirty minutes from the store so we had to make due. Great product but be sure to check them if you order online before loading in your vehicle.

Review 7 for 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber
I used the store pick up option for this wood and for some other pressure treated 2x4s that I would need to build a swing set using a kit bought at the store, The wood was already pulled for me when I arrived and the ones that were selected were not the best of quality that I could see (lots of knots and cracks throughout ), I went back an exchanged about 4 of the 8 that I had requested for better pieces (I had to do some digging from them as well), After using them to build my structure and letting them dry out for 2 weeks I noticed that these too are starting to have some large cracks and splits in them as well, I plan to stain the wood once it completly dries out but I may have to do it sooner than I had planned , Structurally they seem to work out just fine but Im worried that if I dont seal them qucikly they may crack all the way through and split, they seem good for what I am using them for but I'm not sure how load bearing they would be
Pros: Seals Well, good value
Cons: some quality issues

Review 9 for 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber
I bought 8 8t wooden fence posts. Because it is hard for me to walk I pre-ordered and picked it up. 4 of the posts have large cracks in them and two have warped rather badly and they have been up only a month. Next time, I will go in and select my own posts at whatever store I buy from to ensure I get defective free posts.
Cons: split and warped wood

Review 11 for 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber
all finished lumber is s half inch smaller (4x4 is actually 3 1/2x3 1/2) due to kiln drieing. The only way you get true demensions is to get rough sawn lumber (from a mill or someone with a mill). I hope this helps.

Review 16 for 4 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber
PostedMay 30, 2013
No, I do not recommend this product.
I had a new deck installed about a month ago using this wood. Its already has 2 ft long splits about a half inch wide in it. I understand it is a natural product, and wood splits but in my opinion this is a very poor product.
