Im sure most of you guys do your own carpentry work on your exterior jobs, we replace facial boards and many others items on most exterior jobs.

My question is, our policy has always been to prime all sides of the wood before buting the new wood goes in place. Do you think that is going overboard??? It would be easier to put the raw wood up, and then just prime the exposed areas.

How do you guys handle this??

Pre-primed, prime the cuts
Raw, prime all 6 sides

Home Depot pre-primed, complete re-prime....then empty 1/2 case of caulk per cornerboard, get out the wood filler, belt sander, and planer, then throw 2 out of every three boards in the dumpster when they split as you nail them...
