How to Exterior Paint

How to do a great job with exterior paint

First job is to check if you have an old oil based paint or a water based paint

-use a rag with Methyated Spirits (avaiable at shop) and rub the old paint. If the paint comes off onto the rag it is water based paint.

-you can then over coat with a water base primer and top coat

-if oil based use one of oil based primers for spot priming of area, then an oil based top coat

-if you want to use a water based system, use our high solids 3-1 primer then top coat

As with any job prep is everything, pressure clean down, remove flakes, carry out any repairs and give a sand.
