The previous owners of my house apparently painted it w/o any primer. I a couple of spots the paints has peeled away leaving exposed wood. I don't want this wood to rot or get damaged in any way.
What should I do with it before I get a change to do a proper paint job? Prime it? Or some other material over the exposed wood?
The house was built 1885 and long wide slats of wood on the sides for a covering. As far a can the siding is still the original.
