Please settle a 'debate' my husband and I are currently having! We have bought a sea-house style summer house which we would like to paint blue. The question is, should it be painted before or after assembly? :!:
Hmmm, depends on what wood it is. If it is intended this be for outside use then it should already be pre-treated, unless of course it is something like Swedish Cedar which is normally left untreated as it naturally takes on a dull look after several years.
If I were assembling it, regardless of the timber I would treat before assembly so all surfaces are protected. Give it an extra dollop in those joints!
