Can you paint masonite siding??


But we are talking specifically about spot priming, and I think joe has a good point. I don't see any reason to any priming at all of Masonite these days anyway - unless spot priming to save time/money and salvage a board.

I tend to agree I kind of equate Masonite with particle board, once it starts to delaminate or gets wet and starts to crumble, there is nothing going to stop it. And I agree to wet it with water (latex) doesn't seem like a good idea.

I know that Zinsser BIN is not appropriate; I was asking for alternatives to other Zinsser offerings. I just want to get rid of these bubbles.

Thanks for helping.

Edit: just saw the last posts; I repeat the the sidings are sound, no crumbling. They were installed in 1978.

Wow, I was upset and annoyed when I found out my bathroom ceiling was Masonite over plaster while installing a fart fan. I made sure I painted it with a good quality paint designed for bathrooms and to be honest most can't even tell it's Masonite.

Downstairs bathroom has it on the walls as well, I guess they thought it was an easy thing to cover aging plaster with.

I didn't like it on a bathroom ceiling, I can't even imagine having it as siding. Does it hold up ok if maintained?

Well, yeah, I mean I have seen it hold up in some places, but then if you really paint and caulk something well, it won't get wet. But do you really want paper fiberboard protecting your house against the exterior elements? There's a reason there's a class action lawsuit against the stuff. If you ever held it in hands, you'd be surprised it ever got used at all. It's just common sense not to use stuff like that.

Oh I know, that's why I couldn't believe it's on my bathroom ceiling near a shower. But the best move was to paint it well and leave the plaster and lath under it alone for now.

Didn't realize there was a class action lawsuit against it, my stuff was done sometime in the 1920s when it was apparently a big thing at the time. I'm assuming the class action lawsuits must be against modern stuff!? I would've thought they would have realized it was bad for anything wet or moisture related by October of 1920 if it started in September of 1920.
