To cover two 4x8 sheets of plywood, front and back. Its my hurricane shutters, I'm keeping mine. Any ideas on a better coating than paint? I have to do my deck as well should I just use deck sealer? Its way easier to apply.

Primer and paint. 1 gallon each. Glidden at Home Depot.

It is cheaper than two quarts of each.

Well, why not just use deck sealer; unless you plan on entering the "house that's got the most color coordinated shutters contest" during the next hurricane.

I can see the headlines now, "Judges Blown Away by Pooby's Color Scheme."

If you are doing them, don't forget to do the edges too. Especially on plywood.

get the edges twice or more- will soak up a lot- do not store outside or keep covered

I think I may use deck sealer as I can spray it on the deck and not worry about overspray and it will be quicker too.
Hey, I'm not trying to win.I just want to seal the wood so it lasts.

1 gallon of paint covers 400 square feet. 1 gallon of paint will do 3+ coats on each shutter.
