Painting Rental Property (Exterior)


I just picked up 10 gallons of SW A-100 today to paint a rental property. The salesman recommended that I go with a flat because part of the house is brick. His theory was that any gloss would clash with the flat bricks. I was leaning towards a sheen b/c ive heard that it is more durable. Any advice on if this was a good move?

Prior to walking into the store I was convinced that I was going to spray the exterior, but again, the salesman tried talking me out of it. He said that the siding (composite) would still have to be backrolled, which would negate the benefit of spraying. He also said that I would need closer to 15 gallons of paint if I was going to spray. The house is a 1 story ranch (about 1400 sq ft). Im thinking that I might just use a 3-4 inch brush. Am I crazy? Seems like it would be easy, but time consuming. Thoughts?

First what are you painting, is it wood clapboards, siding, stucco, cement board knowing this will effect the answer. If I'm reading this right you are painting what's above the brick, not the brick is this correct. As far as the sheen I feel it depends on personal taste. And even if you have to backroll it will be a lot quicker than a brush.

Not a great time of year to be doing any outside painting in a lot of areas of the country.
