After demolishing the bad planks (which Don did happily with his Cubs hammer and a grin of destruction on his face), I unwrapped the new boards to read the installation instructions – and discovered they’re supposed to cure for 72 hours in the “climate of the room” before hanging. I wondered if it really mattered, since the porch isn’t really insulated and goes through a variety of temperatures and humidities in a year, but decided to be safe rather than sorry, so now I’ve got a hole in the ceiling for the next couple days. Next time, I’ll read the related information well before I plan to start the project.
