Title: Don’t get (sun) burned : exposing exterior wood to the weather prior to painting contributes to finish failure

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: Contrary to what might be called popular myth, research shows that allowing exterior wood surfaces to weather before applying paint does not help the cause of long-term coating performance. Instead, weathering prior to painting has been shown to contribute significantly to premature failure of the finish due to loss of adhesion.
