Painting Trim


Hey Barb, I did a search on painting trim and it came back with many threads on that topic. There were too many for me to list them here.

Just do a search on painting trim and most of your questions will be answered.

Sand it. Prime it with Zinsser Coverstain Oil. Lightly sand anything that may need it. Topcoat with a quality paint (Sherwin Williams Superpaint or Benjamine Moore Regal Aquaglo or even an oil based paint)

Sand,clean,prime( I do not usually use oil)with a GOOD bonding primer( Fresh Start,Zinssers123, etc) Good top coat( I really like Ben Moore Satin Impervo Waterbourne)

As opposed to Matthew,I avoid oil based products as much as possible, I am thinking he is a young man and will soon learn the evils of oil on the body.

I am not saying cover stain does not have it's uses, it does, just not for ALL priming, it just is not necessary,IMHO

LOL. Well, I am 38. I like to think I am young though....

I was just trying to have them avoid the problm that if the stained woodwork isn't sealed properly with poly then it will just bleed right through any latex paint.

But oils are so good for the skin.

I would use oil to ensure that there is no bleed. Nothing worse than sanding, priming, and painting to only find out down the road that there is bleeding showing through on all trim. Better safe than sorry. Good Luck

You have my vote.
I agree with the other recommendations, they will work, but I have had excellent results with waterborne.

The fact is most Alkyd/Oil products available today are garbage. All the "good stuff" has been taken out. The Waterborne (not latex !!) systems are where the research and technology is invested today. Paint companies are slowly converting to all waterborne products.

Question

Painting Trim


What exactly is the waterborne if it isn't latex or oil-based? I may consider it for the outside trim in next year or so. Last time it was done, the guy changed from latex to oil....lots of chips on the porch and a couple on the banisters. And what primer should be used for the transition from oil to waterborne?

I can't answer that directly but can say that after drying you would have a hard time telling it from oil. It is not the easiest product to work with,it takes some time to learn application techniques( hard to explain,but it tends to run and drip and you cannot fool around with it too much) but as said the finish is very nice.As for primer,Fresh Start would be my choice,123 second.

Chronic effects from frequent or prolonged exposure to organic solvents have not been thoroughly researched. Increased risk from exposure may cause permanent damage to liver, kidneys, bone marrow, and central nervous system.

Thanks for the info Chris. This might be a hired project next year, not sure yet. I'm still on the LR right now, as I'm only working on it about 1-2 days a week and getting ready to go to beach...oh well, following week it should be done and it's gonna be BEAUTIFUL, thanks to you Chris.

And I'd sure like to be 38 again, lol.

Dupont waterborne paint specs.

I know that they are very similar with each manufacturer. Sherwin Williams seems to be at the for front of the manufacturing processes. They started it out in WW1..... Any how a good read just the same............... It is all pretty bad for a person no matter what is used or how long it is used.
