I am currently engaged in the rather arduous task of stripping all the paint off the original cypress clapboard siding on my 1910 house in Houston. I have a couple helpers, but expect that, given my schedule and the effort involved (4 layers of paint, lots of 7' tall windows) and other miscellaneous repair work that is needed, it will be at least a month before painting can begin.
I'm using a "Silent Paint Remover" infared heater to help strip the siding. I know that this helps extract moisture out of the wood.
As I strip a section, should I use a wood sealer on that area to help protect that area/lock out moisture, or would I be OK with some areas exposed up to a month before painting? Furthermore, should a sealer be used regardless before priming?
Leave it, keep fingers crossed for good weather. I have taken many houses down to bare wood and then went back to prime. But then I like to do things in a systematic way & worry about weather later................
