painting rough sawn spruce fence boards
hello, I just finished building my fence built primarily of treated wood, with exception of my fence boards which are rough sawn spruce. I intend to paint the fence to protect from rotting, but with winter fast approaching where I live I am concerned I may not be able to do any painting before winter. Would I be able to get away with one full winter season without painting it until next year? Or will the rough spruce begin to rot and will I likely be replacing some boards come next spring?
thanks in advance for your reponses.
