I have 8 " channel wood siding on my house which needs painting. Some pieces
have started to show signs that the sun has shrunk and created grain
striations. I'm planning on using a wood stain by Floodco. My question is,
should I worry about this graining pattern in the wood? The board is in good
shape otherwise. I've thought maybe I could fill these marks with some
spackle or other type of filler. Sanding? Also, how should I prep this wood
siding prior to painting. I've planned to rent a high pressure sprayer to
remove the loose paint. Thx.
Neither stain nor paint will fill in weathered/raised wood grain. Stain
is supposed to allow some grain to show, but if it is too raised to suit
you then sanding (yuck) would be in order.
Read the label on the product for prep/application instructions.
