painting beadboard


hello,
I am about to install 400 sq. ft. of beadboard. Material is fir and is 1x6x 20' lengths. Installation is on large outdoor covering. Does wood need to be primed or painted on "back side"? Outdoor covering has a roof so beadboard should be watertight. thx

PTB, it's always good policy to back prime any exterior wood that you can.

Great that you thought of that. As a pro I'm called in to finish after everything is installed and I know it would last many years longer if backpriming has been done.

I stand humbled, and corrected, before my esteemed peers. Yes, by all means, prime all six sides of wood.

Leah, I knew that, I was just sleeping on my watch.

PTB, If the wood is outside, it requires exterior products/treatment, even if it isn't directly exposed to certain elements, it's still exposed to cold and damp.

thank you kindly. on a side note, any opinions on color of outdoor fans if outdoor ceiling will be white. I know this is subjective and individual preference, but i m sure many of you have seen many outdoor fan/ceiling color combinations and can comment on what looks clean and sharp. maybe pics from jobs you worked or saw. Thanks
