Painting New W/r/ Cedar Shingles


I am painting an existing 3 story home. Two sides have new w/r cedar shingles which have been up for 2 months. I have heard that because of the sun rays they need to be sanded before I wash,prime and top coat.as for sanding I can't imagine sanding that much area plus three stories up. is there a wash I can use or is sanding an overkill?

Wash it with a product called Jomax available @ Cheapo’s or any hardware. Use a good primer as that will be the key to your paint job. Use Sherwin Williams 2 coats & sleep well

If the wood has weathered and started to turn grey , it should be sanded to expose fresh wood .

An alternative is to use a deck brightener , or similar product , following the manufacturer痴 directions

A pressure washer could be used as well , using a 15 or 25 degree tip to remove the weathered surface . Not recommended if you are not familiar with the process as a pressure washer can cause a lot of damage in the wrong hands

Fresh clean wood will hold paint much better than grey weathered wood

Wash it with Jomax prime with Glidden Gripper & it will take a dozer to pull it off. Done deal

To remove the grey weathered surface .

Weathered grey wood will not hold paint as well as clean fresh wood

Cedar is going to soak paint in like a sponge in case you have never painted cedar not to mention if it’s only 2 months old

[quote=Kingcarpenter1;7794031]Cedar is going to soak paint in like a sponge in case you have never painted cedar not to mention if it痴 only 2 months old[

The op asked a specific question , I gave a specific answer
__________________________________________________ ________
Cedar
It is recommended that you paint within two weeks of installing the cedar. Make sure that you wait no more than 12 weeks.

Allowing fresh siding to weather for as little as two weeks negatively affects coating adhesion. Test results from the Forest Products Testing Lab (run by the USDA for the Forest Service), show that after 12 weeks of exposure to sunlight, cedar siding has lost half of its ability to hold a film-forming coating system like primer and paint.
