Ok, with all the talk on the told thread, I’m hoping some of you can give me a few pointers
I was using my cool little hand sander yesterday in 85 degree sunny weather, which was to continue today and rain tomorrow. The rain is here today, I don't have primer on the bare wood.
The paint is only off the wood in spots, and is partially sheltered by the porch roof. How much damage is this going to do? The house is 80 years old, it's the original porch, and the old paint was pretty badly cracked. I'm worried the wood is going to suck up the moisture like a sponge and I'll get rot after I prime and paint it - next week when the rain stops.
Thanks for any advice you can give!
