Customer Q&As

How do I paint timber that has been exposed to the elements?

We had an extension added on a couple of months ago. We were going to paint it straight away but we ran out of time. The extension is new timber but as the weatherboards have been exposed to the elements for a while now is there any special preparation we should do?


Timber, which has been exposed to the elements for more than four weeks, should be sanded back to a fresh, new surface. A grey or weathered surface makes an unsound base and will encourage peeling and flaking. Sand the surface to remove all greyed timber. Punch any nails well below the surface, spot prime and fill the nail holes with an exterior timber filler, such as Selleys Plasti-Bond. Sand smooth and apply Dulux 1 Step Acrylic Primer Sealer Undercoat to maximise paint durability.
