I am residing my 1849 bank barn this spring with 1x12 white oak board and batten, and I need to buy barn-red paint.
Anybody have opinions on the best type/brand/source of good old barn paint? I plan to paint the boards on the ground before putting up.
Also- the siding is fairly green- about a month since milling. Any problems painting it green or should it wait until dried?
Lastly, would there be any benefit to painting the inside of the boards as well? I am planning on either coating the end grain of each plank with anchorseal, or maybe just a lot of paint. Anchorseal more likely because I can have the guys slap some on the ends just before installation (less messy than paint). The goal is to minimize the checking as the oak shrinks.
Sorry to have been away from the board for a while- been busy (and getting into metal machining over the winter).
