I did the 7:30AM thing again this morning...got the 2nd coat on before it got too hot on the substrate to apply paint. Then I washed down the window trim (facing South) in prep for painting and a tiny, bright green, tree frog popped out from behind the shutter! .
Hope I didn't harm it with the TSP solution; those guys are really sensitive to chemicals...

Amphibians are the "canary in the coal mine" for the environment. Too small for frog legs.

Consider the composite boards and forget painting and the like. Power washing rules. I prefer to make my life easier which doesn't include painting, especially painting. I'll leave that to the pros.

I got tired of the "every other year" need to strip the old coating and apply new and even paid a "painting company" an extortionate amount to do it the last go around, hoping that it would last longer but no such luck. I gave in and replaced the decking and handrails with "maintenance free" products, and am hoping that this chore is finally behind me. As a plus, my wife loves her new deck, all kinds of brownie points achieved. I still need to replace the lattice work around the underneath, that's been held up by the recent incessant rain and the (happily departed) kidney stone.

I've never had much luck with exterior paint, regardless of brand, and now have all exterior trim wrapped in aluminum except for the basement door which is on my list. I built a storage shed 27 years ago and it's held up well, although needing to be power-washed and repainted every five years or so. It's probably due for another coat, and I'm seriously considering covering it with vinyl siding - at 8' x 12', the cost won't be too bad, probably more cost in the trim pieces than the actual siding - as the T-11 siding is starting to look a little shabby underneath the paint. A possible project for cooler weather though.

Would definitely recommend going with a "manufactured" material and just biting the bullet on the cost. Sometime you can get a 12 to 18 month interest free deal at the big box stores to help spread out the cost. You will be thanking yourself many times over when you don't have to touch up or completely redo the what ever finish you would apply to wood material.

Daninvan,

I remember when I visited you in 2016, you showed me that you were going to re-do the railings. 2 years is not impressive. I have had good results using marine paint, I painted the new plywood floor I installed in my trailer 10 years ago and it is still great. Funny how some of the Tremclad I used on the metal sides is starting to peel !
I am currently building a new section of deck for the new pool we had installed and we are considering painting the railings white with the brown treated wood decking it should look nice. If we do, I'll be buying the marine paint again.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.

Wasn't me, but sounds like a good idea. A bit pricey though (you get what you pay for I guess).

Powder coated. Went with the dark color based on a article I read that the dark color faded into the background when you looked through them - and it appears to work. Couple things I would do different next time - but then I'm hoping that there isn't going to be a next time.
