Paint+Primer work on this situation?

Prior to painting, the plan will be to powerwash and scrape as much loose paint as possible.
Would you consider the paint+primer paints such as Dutchboy DuraWeather MaxBond or Valspar Duramax, etc would work on this surface? I anticipate the best answer is to get a higher end primer and paint and do them separately, such as a Ben Moore or Sherwin. Will the Dutchboy or Valspar at least cover it adequately for a few years?

You can roll the dice. I wouldn't.

And you need to figure out why that paint is pealing.

Dutchboy blows, VaLspar's ok. For all the effort you're going to be putting into it, why do the 2 year plan?

The 2 year plan...?
Well, I'm having a new roof put on at the same time and the remainder of my budget will not support doing Ben Moore primer then paint. The intent would be to sell very soon.

It looks like there is no primer under the paint now so most of it will come off when you powerwash I suspect. No such thing as paint and primer in one so if you use any of the products do not expect much. Dutch Boy is SW's box store brand and Valspar is what it is. I would use a contractor grade from an SW or Ben Moore store before using either.

You might think about Sherwin Williams Woodscapes Solid Acrylic Stain. It is not exactly cheap either. You can get it mixed to any color and will not require a primer. You can put it over exposed wood or previously painted. I would feel confident it would last two years.

Just a comment and I know budget is tight. If you brag about the house being recently painted in the sales literature and can brag about the paint used? It becomes a major selling feature. Make sure to rake up and bundle those chips so people do not see how bad the paint on it now is doing a walk around.

Since you have chipped/loose paint, you might want to consider using a high quality bonding primer such as Mad Dog Primer. It's expensive ($70/gallon) but the way I look at it, it's your labor that is the most expensive part. Paint is cheap compared to the drudgery of painting, scraping, spackling, sanding, etc. Something that I don't want to have to do any time soon again.

Either of them will work, assuming you have the surface scraped and dry. Will you have an awesome, long-lasting finished product? Probably not, but it will be okay - at least for awhile.

4 years ago I was running out of time to paint a backyard shed I had built. Late fall, storm moving in that weekend, etc. I picked up a gallon of Behr (GASP!) primer/paint at the nearby Home Depot (GASP GASP!!!!!) and threw it on. It's a dark color, matching our brick house. This many years later, it still looks as good as it did when I first applied it. No chipping, peeling or fading. Go figure.
