    I am in the process of changing the wood on my garage to pallet wood. The back of the garage has rotted from water damage between Hurricane Katrina and water from rain. I have gotten free pallets that are white oak, red oak and cedar and have been heat treated. I know white oak and red oak are porous and need to be sealed from the weather. What type of sealer and waterproofing paint should I use?
