I am preparing to re-paint the exterior of our house which has cedar lap 'n gap siding. It was last coated with a solid stain(Battleship Gray)10-12 years ago. I have power-washed and scraped any peeling finish. I would like the finish coat to be a Acrylic latex (blue-gray). What primer should I use? Should it be tinted?
It depends on the acrylic latex solid stain that you use if you need a primer or not. The Duron Maxwood Acrylic Soild Hide stain (28 series) is self priming and has tannic blocking built in, so all you would need to do is apply 2 coats of the same product. If you use another brand go with what they reccomend as far as if a primer is needed. If you need to use a primer you should have it tinted close to the finish coat so you can cover it in one coat of finish.
