I am repairing the fascia and soffitt on both my dormers but would like to hold off painting/staining until I complete my new porch addition, which will run underneath the dormers, and do it all at the same time...the porch won't be completed until July/Aug...would a primer last this long without painting/staining or should I use something else? A friend suggested I should use a sealer but I would like an expert opinion.
Sorry should have posted that...it is all raw wood...the 1x8 fascia is syp and right now I have it in my house since we are having storms and getting ready to freeze for a week then back up to 60s and sunny! Plan to use the primer/sealer on all 6 sides before installing.
Thanks for your prompt replies! After Priming, will I need to paint them now or can I wait till I complete the porch? Guess I could paint them before installing also...Not a really big deal I just haven't decided on color yet and wanted the porch trim to match..
