AbstractThe maintenance on paint on wood siding is a continuing problem and one of particular interest to the Atlantic Regional Station of the Division of Building Research because of the predominance of wood construction in the Atlantic Provinces. The introduction to the report explains how this study of lighthouse stations was initiated - most appropriately - through the Atlantic Regional Station of the Division, the Atlantic Coast of Canada being justly famous for its scenery and, therefore, necessitating a remarkable collection of lighthouses.This report, is, therefore, one of a series recording careful observations of various aspects of the performance of buildings under different Canadian climatic conditions.
