Water-vapour and water transport in wood coated with nine different joinery paints were monitored. The joinery paints were commercial paints used in window factories mainly in Finland and Sweden. The moisture transport properties of painted pine and spruce specimens which were unweathered, weathered for one year, and weathered for three years were determined. Painting, weathering and the wood substrate all affected the moisture transport in the coated wood.
