I have 40 year old tired looking cedar shanks on a rent house I bought. I was told by Sherwin Williams I had to use a oil based primer and then I could put latex over it. My question is "Can I use a latex exterior primer instead? I was told no by them but the oil based primer is $42.00 gallon and my paint man does not want to run it through his sprayer?

On cedar that has not been painted or soild stained you should use and oil based primer, such as the Sherwin Williams A100 oil primer to seal it and not hold back bleeding from the cedar. Yeah it is not all that cheap but it is better than doing it with latex and having the bleeding and then having to put the oil based primer on anyway. The finish should be the Sherwin Williams Woodscapes acrylic/latex solid stain.

I don't know why a painter would not want to put the oil based primer through a sprayer.

Hope this helps.
