Exterior Paints


Latex paints... Looking to paint old grooved shingles. Suggestions on best latex quality paints... Not looking for cheapest. Considering Sears Ultra Weatherbeater, California, Ben Moore.

Just had powerwash to remove peeling. Plenty of places down to bare wood. Believe underneath latex and oil base paints? Will prime house with zinsser 123 oilbased primer.

Are you in California?

Zinsser 123 is not alkyd base, Coverstain is, use that.

What's a grooved shingle?
Those cedar/shake shingle things, that have weathered up/down groves in them?
Could be a (solid) stain you are looking for
Need more info on the substrate
And the area you are in

Do not consider Sears for quality paints, sorry
Always better quality at a Paint Shop rather than a paint dept.
