Question
So.. It may seem like a silly question because i feel like i know the answer. Can i use already used 2x4s and 2x6s for anything, safely? So the 2x4s and 2x6s have been nailed and or screwed. Is the integrity of the lumber to compromised to be reused?

Answer

IN MOST CASE THE LUMBER CAN BE REUSED however

if the lumber is old ood and where it was iniatly used may be a different story

termites love lumber  water oaked lumber may have ROT  

IF YOU ARE NOT SURE HAVE A PROFESSIONAL LOOK AT IT
