Question

Wooden Fence Baluster (Pickets) for Front Porch

Asked by
BradP
Stafford, VA
about 1-gal. white Exterior Barn and Fence Paint on
August 13, 2014
I'm in need of painting new balusters on my front porch. The baluster itself is squared, primed and made for indoor use. However, if I was to use this paint, would it be water-resistant and able to keep from rotting?

Yes, this paint would be water resistant (since it's exterior rated), but making sure it is maintained regularly will assist to help it from rotting.

Dear Brad,

Thanks for your interest in our Behr Barn & Fence Paint. Our Barn & Fence Paint is not formulated with a water resistant finish, however we would recommend our Exterior Wood Stains formulated with that performance feature instead. Please consider products such as, Behr Premium Solid Color Weatherproofing All-In-One Wood Stain & Sealer or Behr Solid Color Waterproofing Wood Stain.

Hope this helps, and best of luck on your project!

We recently built a fence around our garden and used treated lumber. Some people have told us to wait a year for the wood to 'weather' but I don't want to wait. Will this paint stay on the lumber well?

Hi Kelbel,

Thank you for your interest in our Behr Barn & Fence Paint. If your pressure treated lumber is new we recommend using a product such as our Behr Premium No 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner to remove any mill glazing. After your fence is thoroughly cleaned and dry you can coat your fence. Please follow all label instructions for proper surface preparation and application. Good luck with your project!

Hi Kudos1004,

Thank you for your interest in our Behr Barn& Fence Paint. This product can be applied over a previously painted surface. Sand all glossy surfaces and apply directly over the clean dry surface. If the previous latex coating has started to peel or crack, use a product such as Behr Premium No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper to remove the old coating. Follow with a product such as Behr No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner and allow to dry completely before applying your final coat. Please follow all label instruction for proper preparation and application. Please follow all manufacturers instruction regarding your power washer as strength and intensities may vary depending on model. Good luck with your project!

Asked by

June 4, 2012
Dear Ed,

A primer is only required if you are painting a "bleeding" wood like Redwood, Cedar, Cypress or other “bleeding” woods. These woods contain water soluble extractives which may cause discoloration of white and pastel colors; therefore if necessary, prime the above type woods with one coat of a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® NO. 436 Exterior Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer to reduce these stains. Below are the preparation and application instructions for using our Barn & Fence Paint.

PREPARATION
Remove stains caused by mold and mildew with a mold and mildew stain removing product. Previously painted, stained or clear sealed wood: Sand all glossy surfaces. If surface is in good condition, apply directly over clean, dry surface. If the latex or oil-based finish has started to crack, peel or flake, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM™ NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper on wood to remove the coating. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner. Scrub, rinse, and allow to dry completely. New, weathered, pressure treated or uncoated wood: Place cloth duct tape in random areas on the bare wood. Press the tape firmly then quickly remove it. If wood fibers or debris are pulled onto the tape, the wood surface is not sound and additional preparation is required as follows: Clean surface with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper. Rinse. Follow with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner at full strength to remove mill glaze and/or loose wood fibers, dirt and other debris. Rinse and allow to dry.

APPLICATION
Use when air and surface temperature are 50-90˚F (10-32˚C). Do not apply in direct sunlight or if rain is expected within 24 hours. Wood surfaces must be completely dry. When working with more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Redwood, Cedar, Cypress and other “bleeding” woods contain water soluble extractives which may cause discoloration of white and pastel colors; therefore prime the above type woods with one coat of a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® NO. 436 Exterior Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer to reduce these stains. Apply with a nylon/polyester brush on smooth surfaces. On rough-sawn or textured wood apply with a 3/4" long nap roller or high quality airless sprayer. For airless spraying use a .015" tip. Keep a wet edge to reduce lapping and help control color uniformity. Always back-brush or back-roll during all application methods. Two coats may be necessary for complete hiding. Apply the second coat only after the first coat has thoroughly dried.

Thank you for the inquiry!
