Home-and-Family If you are a homeowner planning an exterior painting project, one concern you may have is the cracking you see on the plywood surfaces of your trim. Plywood is commonly used and is very durabale, but can be a source of cracking and peeling paint in areas where you get a lot of sunlight, moisture and temperature changes. This form of cracking is termed ‘checking’ in the exterior painting industry. Checking usually occurs on the outer veneer of a plywood surface that is exposed to sunlight and weather. Plywood outer veneers will crack along the grain line after exposure to repeated expansion and contraction due to environmental forces. As the separation in the grain occurs it causes the painted surface to check. One exterior painting question frequently asked is how to properly treat areas where checking is occurring. That usually depends on how bad the checking is. It’s possible you may need to replace the plywood if the cracking is bad enough and if that area is getting a lot of sunlight, temperature and moisture exposure. However, I would try the following process first before deciding to replace the plywood. 1.The first step is to sand the entire areas with a power sander to remove oxidation and smooth the surface. 2.Spread a thin layer of caulk into the cracks and seams of the plywood surface. 3.After the sanding is complete and all cracks are filled with caulk, prime the bare wood with two coats of Zinsser Peel Stop. Peel Stop is a very elastic primer that can withstand the expansion and contraction of the cracks in the plywood without separating. This elastic base coat is very important in order to withstand the movement in the veneer layer of the plywood. 4.After the Zinsser Peel Stop undercoat has dried thoroughly, apply two layers of a good grade of outside house paint. My preference for the top coat is Sherwin Williams’s exterior Duration paint. Duration has 70 percent more elasticity than your average 25 year paint and will stretch without separating along the grain line of the plywood veneer. 5.In cases where the plywood is extremely aged, you may need to replace the wood completely. 6.If you decide to replace the plywood, then follow the processes described above so you will not encounter future problems. One thing to remember is that paint elasticity is important for enduring the movement along the grain of plywood surfaces. Oil base paint and primers don’t have enough elasticity built into their formulas to handle the checking that will occur when plywood is subject to sunlight, moisture, and ever changing temperatures. You should keep this exterior painting tip in mind. A thicker Paint film will permit the paint to stretch more, spanning the cracks for a much longer period of time. I recommend the 4 coats above (2 coats of Peel Stop and 2 Coats of Duration) because a thicker film of paint will stretch further without cracking. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
