In the midst of having new Cedar horizontal clapboards being put on house.
They are pre-primed (with something ?) on both inside and outside.
a. Not really "dirty", but guess I will have them pressure washed first.
Good idea ?
Anything I should probably know first about pressure washing Clapboards
e.g., can it ruin or take off the primer ?
b. Have no idea how long Cedar clapboards may have been sitting around in
Should I wait some period of time for them to "stabilize" (or perhaps
bleed-out) before the painting (latex paint) ?
If so, how long ? Sure do want to get them painted this summer, though.
c. If not necessary to wait, how long should I wait after the pressure
washing for the surfaces to be satisfactorily dry, etc. ? (assume typical
75 deg. summer days) Will a day or so be enough if dry to the touch ?
