Painting exterior wood

, : Painting exterior wood. BRE Digest ( 422): 8 pp.

A brief explanation is given of the principles underlying the successful painting of exterior wood, with details of paint systems and of the initial and maintenance painting process. An outline is given of the structure of wood and its effects on the application and durability of paint, moisture content and dimensional changes, effects of surface finish and end grain sealing, and external influences such as water, solar radiation, microorganisms and the risk of decay.
