Bubba- you have a couple of big problems. Might require a good professional.

Might think about a solid stain like SW Woodscapes on redwood. Why are you aiming for a high gloss finish on an exterior?

Sounds like it is redwood that has already been painted? If so, be gentle with the scraping as it's very easy to damage redwood siding. Scrape and sand off as much of the old peeling paint that you can. Remove all dust and prime with an oil based primer..........redwood can "bleed" through some latex wood primers. Two topcoats of your favorite paint and you're done. Personally, I like SW's SuperPaint Satin. Not a big fan of HIGH GLOSS on wood siding that is beat up a bit. You might also consider the one coat coverage of SW's Duration. It is pricey and somewhat overrated IMO.

Just thought a solid acrylic stain might be a better option than paint for this since it will go over exposed wood or previously painted. I too was concerned about the redwood bleeding through a primer. It is a soft wood and you can carve it up in hurry trying to scrape paint off of it. I have had great results with SW Woodscapes on wood siding. It is self-priming. You still have to get loose paint off and clean what remains though.

I don't understand the desire for gloss though. To achieve a gloss the OP is going to need a very nice, even, primer/underlay layer. Maybe something like Benjamin Moore Fresh Start-Alkyd?

A high gloss finish will show any imperfections, especially if there is damaged wood.

Teddy,
Do as recommended above, gently scrape/sand to remove any loose paint, remove sanding dust, and yes, spot-prime the bare redwood with an oil prime or tannin-blocking primer. If you want to even out the surface so it doesn't look like the surface of the moon, apply Peel-Bond primer. for which, follow this link:

It must be top-coated with an acrylic. This is a very useful undercoat if you are using a higher-sheen product.

Chris, do you ever agree with anyone? Sheesh. If you read the rest of what I said, I stated that it is OVERRATED. It is a consideration if you don't want to apply 2 coats. One coat is easier for the DIYer IN SOME INSTANCES.

I have been reading up on this primer but have not used it yet. From your post I assume you have. Would you share the results.
