What Is Paint For Exterior Wood?

All major paint manufacturers have developed high-quality emulsions specially designed to treat exterior wood such sheds, fences, decking & exterior trim. These products come in a range of finishes, including satin, gloss and eggshell, which all vary in their level of sheen. The more sheen a finish has, the more light it reflects and the more durability it has. In terms of interior paint for wood, eggshell has the least sheen, with satin having slightly more sheen and gloss having the most sheen.

Many of the paints designed to be applied to wood can be used both externally and internally. These come in both water-based and oil-based formulations, which offer varying qualities. Water-based paints are quick-drying, do not yellow over time and have lower VOC's, while oil-based paints are more durable and can achieve a higher quality of finish.

How Do You Apply Paint For Exterior Wood?

The preparation and application of paint to interior woodwork completely depends on the condition of the surface you are painting. With exterior wood, the chances are is that the wood will have had some adverse reaction to weathering, meaning that the preparation of the surface is crucial. Start by removing any peeling paint and sanding down the surface ready for painting. This is also the time to remove any dust or dirt with a cloth.y, following the grain of the wood. Once applied, its quick drying formula means the weather won't spoil your fresh paintwork. Many exterior paints for wood are self-priming, meaning all you have to do is apply two-coats evenly to the wood, leaving it plenty of time to fully dry between coatings.
