How should I prep eaves/facia before repainting
4 years ago I cleaned,scraped,primered and painted my eaves and facia wood. A retired painter down the street from me suggested I come back every few years and recoat everything so I dont have to scrape again. Unfortunately he has passed away so I cant pick his brain for answers. Is what he said the best way to go?
Do I just clean and paint the existing wood with the same finish color that looks fine after 4 years and clean,scrape and spot primer any other areas that are peeling?
I have also painted my rain gutters with the same finish color. None of my gutters are peeling. Do I just clean and recoat them? I am using Vista Terminator 2 water- based Primer Sealer Stain Killer on the wood. The finish coat is Vista Carefree Acrylic Enamel semi-gloss shell white. I am putting two coats on everything. This is the same paint I used on the wood 4 years ago. Thanks
