Q:It says these Western Red Cedar posts are "green". What is the recommended time to wait for drying after purchase to be able to paint them?

Answer This Question

A:  Patioman, these posts will be crafted from cedar, known for its natural resistance to rot and decay, requiring no treatment. This means they can be painted without having to worry about dry time.

          The posts were two extremely different shades. The lighter-colored post was half the weight of the other one. Since these were used as front porch posts, I had to purchase stain to match the lighter post to the darker one. The darker post had a deep 5” gouge that I faced away from the obvious view.

          Great "cedar" wood. Better than the treated "pine" I have previously used.

          These were excellent products. Exactly what I was looking for. The posts even had an initial sanding so I only needed to use fine grit to complete. It may not be required for other applications. Picture shows posts installed prior to adding handrails. Note - top lights also purchased from Home Depot.

          The two two-packs that I bought were true to published measurements. At 3.75x3.75 inches, two of them needed some planing down to fit the 3.5x3.5 veranda post holders that I had, but I was lent a tool for that so it was fine. One of those two had a slight twist that I didn't notice until near the final stages of assembly, but not a big deal in the application. One of the posts was so wet and heavy that I couldn't use it straight away, but with a little re-design of the structure (a surround for an outdoor shower) I didn't need it for now. I also ordered a pack of four Western Red Cedar 2x4's and the color of those was much redder than the 4x4's. Again, no big deal in my application but it might be an issue for some.
