Here we painted a newly constructed, wooden pole barn for a local homeowner. Our belief in using high quality paint is just as important as surface preparation. Most products protect against weather, but sealing and priming all surfaces before final application is paramount. Often the unfinished wood is too wet or damp to paint. So, we recommend testing the material for dryness in order to avoid premature cracking and peeling in the final coat. We painted this wooden pole barn using Sherwin Williams Emerald for a home on Panama City Beach, Fl.
