The corner and door framing on my shed was really wet. 30-50% wet. Most of it is drying down to paintable now ... but every time I get a day off it rains just before and sets me back. I was wondering if some type of water repellent would prevent it from picking up moisture or would that just lock the moisture in? And if it would still be paintable after that?
It is right that the door has to dry completely before taking further steps Otherwise the wood dries, escaping moisture will cause blisters and poor paint adhesion. Apply primer and I will suggest you to apply oil-based stain after 30 days. Also a recommendation from painting contractors is valuable for best results.This message has been edited.
