Painting Armour Wood® shortly after it is installed is recommended to achieve best results. To maintain your limited lifetime warranty, applying paint within two months of installation is required. We recommend using a high-quality acrylic/latex or oil-based paint that is appropriate for your exterior or interior location.
Armour Wood® comes to you pre-primed with two coats of manufacturer-applied, special-purpose primer that results in an even, defect-free surface. Prior to applying the finish coat paint, you simply fill and prepare the wood according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. You will want to use an exterior filler (as needed) for outdoor applications, followed by spot priming and sanding as necessary. Before painting, you only need to clean and remove any surface debris.
