    Default Priming particle boards

    G'day all,
    I've been making some progress on my shed project as per this link http://www.renovateforum.com/f83/shed-project-110737/
    I've decided on particle boards as the wall and ceiling lining material and I've got a tin of dulux sealer/primer which I've been applying to each sheet in readiness for attaching them.
    My question is do I have to paint the outside surface that is facing the colorbond, or can I just leave it with the primer? I plan on painting the inside face of the sheets after I've attached them, I just wasn't sure about the outside face.
    Thanks for looking,
    Steve.

    Condensation might be a problem. I would be choosing another type of lining material.

    I lined my shed with particle board and it hasn't been an issue. I did paint all sides before putting them up but it was just the cheapest paint bunnings sold. I did install air cell insulation and an air gap via batten first.

    Well there you go ..... clicking on your link it seems that I replied some time ago and didn't end up using battens after all on my shed. It has still held up ok after that many years! There was still an air gap as the insulation was put on the outside of the frame.

    Thanks for the tips.
    Phild01, I have lined the shed with foil insulation sheets, so hopefully condensation shouldn't be a problem with the lining boards. Time will tell I spose.
    Thanks again all,
    Steve.
