Painting Your House?

Whether you are finishing a new house or refinishing an older home, a quality stain or paint can keep the wood panel or lap siding looking good. And care in applying the proper finish can make considerable difference in the length of its life. For a description of recommended finishes for APA Rated Siding, consult the APA Performance Rated Sidings product guide.
