Fading will occur, this is true, but my goal for paint is wood preservation first and foremost, long term return on my labour and low impact re-paint when required. The paint, for me means:
-no peeling in five years, only fading that can be rejuvenated by brushing on boiled linseed oil-way easier than a repaint ( mine has been on the front of our home for 4 years-no paint failure-next year we will brush on linseed oil)

-if it fades to a point where it bugs me there will be minimal prep to repaint-no stripping off or sanding

So where there may be fading, and no paint is perfect, I think this paint offers the best protection out there.

Not sure 4 years without failing is such a great benchmark or bragging point. Let's see how it holds up long term. Prepped, primed and with two nice coats of quality paint store acrylic with nice UV protection the finish should not even need a freshening like you plan next year.

Nothing against linseed oil but your arguments are not all that overwhelming that it is superior to other products solid stain or paint products.

The fact of the matter is in many parts of the US you cannot get or use solvent based products easily any more.

By the way, I still think a processed linseed oil in suitable solvent makes a great wood sealer with no pigment added. It is still a common carrier in the fine arts world.

A properly prepped and painted surface should and will last 10 to 15 years, 4 years is nothing to gage by
I know of absolutly no, none ,0, painters that use this method. If there was a good reason, it would be being done, it is not.

My Peeling Clapboard Nightmare


I'm still at it.

Last year's weather and travel schedule didn't allow me to get much done, but the parts that were done have held up without problems--unlike the previous work we paid for. I'm working as follows:

Wash with bleach/TSP
Strip paint with Silent Paint Remover (they need a small version for corners )
Sand with orbital sander
Brush on primer (BM oil-based Penetrating Primer)
Two coats BM Aura exterior

This job is hell, but Hardy Board is ridiculous and I hate vinyl.

Now to figure out what to do with the soffits to get more attic ventilation.

I have the same basic project in So Cal. Its a 1929 American Colonial, sided with redwood. I am also using the Silent Paint Remover. Your right about the corners issue. I am wondering how your treating the nails. I have some nail heads that have rusted over and are set slightly into the wood making sanding the rust off not possible. Some have said to prime the nails before filling, then fill, then sand and prime everything before the final coat? Any thoughts?

That sounds thorough. I've been filling, then spot-priming over any filling (incl screw holes, small repairs) then doing my main coat of primer. I'm hoping that works.
