exterior trim painting


Hello
I have successfully Removed all the flaky paint and removed all the paint with a heat gun on the window sills. everything looks great I primed with zingers 123 tint primer. on the bear wood.today.

Now I have a few more questions!

The paint that is on the window trim that is still good a ( flat paint !), Should I prime over all the existing old paint, or just paint the top coat over the existing flat paint?
Or prime over everything again 100 % then do the top coat ?
top coat will be same color, Gliddens Endurance semigloss .
should I give it two coats of top coat?

Usualy after you have done all your scraping and sanding you will only need to prime the bare spots.
yes i would apply 2 coats of top coat, it will give you much better results.

exterior trim painting


Thanks to those who replied to my request on painting exterior window trimmings of my daughters home, Sean and Workaholic.Thanks.
She was quoted $ 3,500.00 plus carpentry work on the job I was able to do it labor free the material's came to about $ 280.00 plus my gas driving back and forth. I used Z's 1-2-3 plus tint as a primer and Glidden's best exterior Endurance two coats This paint was one of the best I have ever worked with.
I highly recommend it, One coat covered perfect. but a second coat was recommended , so I did two coats. Buy the way if anyone is interested
I used a heat gun on the window sills then sanded windows.
