Paint Backside Of Siding ?


a. Regarding the typical Wood horizontal type of Clapboard siding:

Is it desireable to prime the backside of the planks ? Why ?

My thought being that it "might" be better to have it un-primed to allow moisture to escape , but am not sure, hence the question.

b. The same question, for T1-11 wood panel type of siding.

If the answer to either is "yes" to either, is it actually available this way ?
From which mfg(s), please ?

In 35 years of building, I have never ever heard of, nor even thought of priming the back side of any siding. I think your time and money could be put to a better use then painting the backside of your siding. Good Luck
