Procedure on re painting barge/facia boards.


I have the face of the barge/facia boards sanded to bare wood, I sprayed with a water hose to rinse off to get ready to prime, hopefully it's not gonna be bad to have the bare wood non primed for a day or two, will kilzs primmer be good and would stainning be best or paint, also should I do any kind of treatment to the wood first, like a spray on sealer or a termite treatment, I really dont see any termite damage but I am wondering since the wood is pretty old and has a few good sized cracks should I treat it in any way?

Thanks for any input, Doug

Barge boards are the the 1x8, 1x10 flat boards that run along a flat roof line. Typically run across the back of row homes.

Give it a good sanding with 80 grit sandpaper, dust it off well, and prime it with a good exterior primer. Work the primer into the wood, don't just lay it on, brush it in. Fill the cracks with caulk after priming. Finish with two coats of quality exterior finish. You'll be okay if it's exposed for a couple of days. I wouldn't worry about termites, they can't climb that high. Be careful around the electrical service, that stuff will jump at you if you get too close.

Hey schermd,
The best exterior primer is oil base and not all oil base primers are the same. Stay with a brand name...Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, Pittsburgh Paint etc. Exterior primers were formulated to dry slowly to allow penetration, that's why you shouldn't use Kilz or latex primers. Give the primer a couple of days to harden, then apply your finish coat, be it latex or oil base.

Ok, thanks for all your input, barge boards, they are the boards where the gable is, they run inline with the rafters do a search.

Barge Board

Definition: Exterior visible flat trim board that follows the rake, the angle of slope of a roof rafter.

row homes have flat roofs, barge boards on row homes run horizontal across the top of the back wall. Rafters run horizontal on a flat roof, side to side, bearing wall to bearing wall. This is where the roof outlet box is, and the electrical service runs it's lenght.

On a flat roof, that barge pictured would be horizontal. I thought it was an easier explanation. But, since you brought it up. Now, go paint em.

Schermd, I didn't mean to sound snippy, but generally, painters are told to go up and paint the gable, or more likely "the A". Not all gables have barge board, which is defined not by its location as much is it's flat and follows the rake of the roof. I used the example I did because I spent a good bit of my life living in and working on row homes, and any one who is familiar with one would be able to immediately recognize the barge. The questioner is another east coaster, and I believe that row homes are more common to the east coat, thinning out as you go west young man.

My thinking too. I usually think of barge rafters though then facia board covering the barge rafter.
