I'm stumped! What caused 2-year old wood shutter damage?
OK, clever hometalkers, I am a bit stumped. we bought new wood shutters 2 years ago. They were primed with Kilz or Zinsser 123 then painted in Sherwin Williams higher end exterior paint.
Now we have weird damage on the bottom of all of them. It feels hard, not soft. Just wondering what caused this??
Texas's super strong sun?
Seems like it can't be water because it wouldn't pool there and the sun is so strong here, water evaporates quickly.
I thought it was the sun, but it's on one that's kind of behind a tree. So not much sun there.
Can the primer and paint really have failed this much in 2 years? Or is this poor manufacturing?
Anyway, I am going to patch with wood filler? Paint with exterior paint again and give it 2 good coats of an exterior poly that's supposed to hold up in our sun.
Any other recommendations from people that have dealt with this would be great. :)
