Clapboard repainting - 2 coats of primer?

I recommend acrylic primers - when appropriate...and I recommend alkyd primers - when appropriate. Both have advantages and, equally opposite, disadvantages... and neither is the right primer in every situation. Your broad-brushed claims regarding "latex" primers are completely unfounded, so it's no surprise that many of your statements regarding "oil" primers (and their specific behaviors) are equally void of fact or basis other than what you believe they should be.
I am all for the new technologies that work. I am also all for coming back and cleaning up the mess that these new technologies that don't work make.

Clapboard repainting - 2 coats of primer?


I remember 20 years ago my landlord of the time dropped off a few gallons of paint too paint the place. I called her up to tell her the paint was bad, real thin, did not cover well. That was my first introduction to latex paint. As ric stated there are pros and cons to each. These days I rarely paint with anything oil based, when I do it is because nothing latex has worked. Auto paints are all going water based. I had a rather nice car that the front clip needed painted. The guy did one of the best color matches I have ever seen, all in water based. I was sold on water based. As for tanin bled through in cedar, that will not happen on old weathered wood. That is a point I would like Ric to respond too. How do you stop the bled through on a knotty cedar painted a light color that was just installed? Also when is their an advantage to tinting a primer.
