Treated lumber is pretty rough on blades. Irwin and DeWalt both have cheap blades that aren’t worth sharpening, and some very good blades that are, so it really depends on which series the blades are from. The DW “Construction” blades and the Irwin “Marathon” series aren’t worth sharpening and will dull quickly….the money savings are short lived. The DW “Precision Trim” series, former “Series 40” and “Series 60”, and the Irwin “Marples” or Irwin “Woodworking” series are very good, have better carbide and overall quality, should last longer, and are worth resharpening IMO.
