Planning on covering ceilings of porch and carport with either tongue
and groove boards or beadboard. They'll be nailed into exposed
non-structural 2X4s and will be painted rather than stained. What kind
of wood would be recommended for an application like this in south
Florida's humid climate? Thanks...
Cedar, cypress, white oak, redwood, teak are the woods to consider for
outdoor use. You could use pressure-treated, but you will have to
wait for it to dry before painting it. Teak is a bit expensive. Most
wood made for fences should work.
