Exterior paint questions Sears Ultra WB and how many gallons?
Buying my first house. But it needs an exterior paint job and I'll be pretty strapped financially for the next year or two but would like to get a coat of paint on the wood siding since it is bare in some spots. The paint itself is not really peeling, its just worn, faded, and just makes the house look run down.
Honestly, I really just want the paint to last 5 years or so because I'll go ahead and get new siding at that point. I know, I know, prep work is 90% of the battle but...
I saw an ad today in the Sears catalog for weatherbeater ultra - says no prep work, no primer, lifetime warranty, at 28 bucks a gallon. I've been nothing but happy with all my Sears products down to my landscaping equipment to my tools. And given I only want this paint job to last 5 years or so anyway good deal?
So I guess two questions:
1. Anybody used/heard about this paint?
2. Approximately how many gallons to paint a 1 story ranch-style house that is approximately 26 feet by 48 feet rectangular shape (1300 sq foot)?
