My 40 year old house in the SF Bay Area has a partially cemented patio. The 2x4's that seperated the poured slab are rotted out. What would be the best wood in terms of Cost/durability to replace these. Also, besides sealing them with a water sealer, what would be the best way to make them last more that 40 years more?

I would probably use green treated 2x4's. Use penta treated if you can get them there, if not use green treated. They will last 30 years.

Thanks,
I have a question on the green treated lumber. Will it stay green, as the top of the boards will show in the patio.

NO, it will change color in the sun as will all lumber.
