Topic tags/keywords: latex paint question

We just bought a manufactured home. The white latex paint on the exterior is peeling/wearing off towards the base of the house. We can see the gray oil-based primer underneath and even the unprotected siding in places. We would like to paint with an oil-based paint, but we need to remove the latex first. We are racing against time as the cold weather is setting in. Any ideas?

Preperation is everything. Power wash it and let it dry thoroughly. Then prime and paint. I don’t think oil base paint is any better that the alkylid paints used today. Some will probably disagree but in my climate there is little difference. Actually the Alkylid paints might be better. I personally like Benjamin Moore Fresh Start Primer. It seems to do a really great job. Paint with good paint over that and you should be set. We have problems with the sun burning through the paint and the wood grain begins to show. Also remember that the best time to paint is before you really need it. Seems too late in your case if you are already peeling.

Kenneth here, you will need to clean it good with clorox-outdoor commercial bleach two, after cleaning good scrap or sand ALL remaining latex paint off. then tack rag & prime with a good Kiltz-Oilbased Primer over entire surface. then sand and paint two coats oil-based paint(sanding inbetween first & second coats. let me know how it turns out.
