exterior paint question

Recommended Posts

My older house never has taken paint well. Blisters and peels way to soon. I've updated and improved ventilation and scraped all the old stuff off that I can.

Would there be any benefits to using a oil based primer versus latex? Would oil seal better? Any problems putting a latex over the oil base?

I usually buy a brand name quality paint but also thought I would try a different brand. Had been using sherwin-williams in the past. Any favorites on brands?

Thanks!!

I think primers today are all pretty good,I once a few years back did what you are asking oil based primer with latex over,after it dried the latex would peel right off! Dont remember brand names,but since I have gone oil on oil or oppsite.

Oil based primers are the way to go on exterior jobs. Latex finish coat over oil is the way I have always done it. Latex needs to "breath" so if you put a latex paint over a latex primer that allows moisture to flow threw both and cause other problems.

My question to you is... Is your house old enough to have lead based paint on it? (pre 1965ish) If it does, no paint will stick well to it, ever frown. It will look good for a while, but expect to paint every 4-5 years or so. Stripping it down or having new sidding installed are your only chances to stop the peeling at that point.

    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
