There is always been two sides of exterior house painting believers. One says "You must use Brush to paint", teh other says"Spray is the best to fill in cracks and last longer".

In Florida, which one should be used when painting the exterior of a house?

Thanks

If it is wood siding then spraying is the better way to go as you apply more paint than brushing. Just be sure to use the premium exterior acrylic paint line from the paint store as it is really your best value.

Let me add another thing about paint spraying. There are some that say you have to thin the paint down alot to get it through a sprayer but if you have a commercial paint sprayer that is just not the case.

I have some type of pressed fiber siding. Would it be better to spray paint or hand brush this type of siding?

thanks,

I will make no difference if you brush or spray as far as durability goes.

Hi everyone! Nice to meet you all! :)

Personally, I prefer using latex spray paint for wood siding.
Latex spray paints include better-quality features such as resistance to yellowing and fading. This might be a known disadvantage of alkyd paints, which have been vulnerable to mold growth as well. Latex spray paints stay on unaffected by mold and fungus.

I have a three-story masonry (cement decorative fascia blocks over concrete blocks and poured concrete walls). Last painted with oil (acrylic?) paint. Would like to spray to save time, and willing to mask the many windows. The sprayer is a Wagner W350, an older model project sprayer (I guess) that does not have a separate compressor. Suggestions on how and how much to thin the paint, other tips, welcomed. Thank you
