Exterior Paint for Pacific NW?


I'm getting ready to paint my house - any recommendations on the best paint to use for my climate?

It's a mid-century ranch, I think it's cedar lap siding.

If its in good shape 2 coats Ben Moore top end stain.
If it is very badly weatherd and has not seen stain for quite some time or if there is a fair amount of scraping and sanding to do then put a coat of Ben Moore stain primer first.
