Wood Finishing Stains and Paints for Exterior Siding

Textured plywood surfaces are probably the most common for exterior siding. Sanded and roughsawn plywood will develop surface checks, especially when exposed to moisture and sunlight. These checks, coupled with the flat grain pattern (wide bands of dark, dense latewood) characteristic of nearly all plywood, can lead to early paint failure. These paint failures can be minimized by the use of top quality acrylic latex paint systems.Textured plywood surfaces are probably the most common for exterior siding.
