Another primer question


Hello-

I need recommendations for the best wood primer. I have cracking latex pain on my fascia boards and some rust stains. Also, is there a good SW product that skips the priming? Thanks.

If you need a primer, and you do, with a stain blocker!
The there is no way or reason to skip it. Especially in your situation there is no primer and paint product in one.

I am guessing these are steel nails that are rusting? You might want to pick up a rattle can of something like Rustoleum's rust converter and spot prime the bleeding nail holes with it.

Then something like Chris mentions from SW will work fine. Ben Moore's Fresh Start will work too. The solvent based alkyd stuff is pretty amazing.

Once you neutralize the nails bleeding, Zinsser 123 Plus with a stain blocker might be a decent waterbased alternative.

One more question, which is better, the Zinsser or the oil based primer?

90% of a proper paint or stain job is in the prep. Skip a step and you'll just be back doing it again sooner.
So what's rusting? The nails from lack of mantaince, or someone used galvanized drip cap?
If it's the drip edge, it can be replaced with aluminum or cleaned up and repainted to get some more life out of it.
That fascia can also be wrapped with aluminum coil stock so it would never need to be painted again.

Drip cap has pealing paint that is causing the rust in small areas and the roof is causing black stains on the fascia. My gutters are hidden as a part of the roof so when it rains hard it simply pours over the fascia. Whoever put the roof on did a poor job laying down the shingles (rolled roof).

I have seen those. When the gutters wear out, and they will, you will have a mess on your hands.

I think you mean some sort of Gutter Helmet product, perhaps its dirt cheap vinyl cousin?

Take them off. Pay to have your gutters cleaned a couple times a year. You will be much happier.
