I have been asked to build some replacement shutters. These are west facing and get some water from a sprinkler system, so we are having problems with rot and fading.
There is not much to do about the fading (any recommendations?). But the rot can be addressed. I am thinking of using cedar or cypress, painting it with Kilz, and then some outdoor paint. I have never painted cedar, does it take paint well?
Any recommendations from the forum?
Dimensions are 15×72.
Thanks in advance
