Tips for exterior painting? Painting house (prep, type of paint, etc…)?


My house is single story, stucco and vinyl siding. I was planning to use roller for stucco and sprayer for siding. Also do you paint the eve’s first or last? Thanks…

    The prep is the most important part. Start by scraping all loose or flaking paint, prime those areas with a quality primer and also any areas that are stained. Follow up with a good quality paint such as Beher from Home Depot. I would use two coats, but one will cover.
    I would consider the soffets (eves) trim and you always do trim last.

    Top to bottom–that is how you paint a house.
    After scraping and priming,caulking etc… You want to paint the eves first–paint does drip and it drips down on to the siding or stucco below,not to mention ladder marks on the fresh paint.Latex paint does not touch up well.
    On the stucco a GOOD acrylic paint is in order–the vinyl could be tricky.Make sure it is CLEAN and I would use an acrylic adhesion primer (ask your paint dealer,not wall mart)and finish with two coats acrylic.I would stay away from dark colors,dark will absorb more heat,causing the siding to expand then alternately contract causing stress to the paint leading to failure.(in other words vinyl can be tricky to paint and guaranty for years)
    Thin primer and paint with amulsabond to promote adhesion and let paint dry and cure a few days before masking onto it with the blue or green tape to prep for spraying.
