what's the best covering/hiding White gloss for Ext.?


I'm using A-100 base white to match existing new work thats been done by another painter. It's going on over a previously painted white surface and NOT covering! Is there something else out there that will cover better and give me the shine in one coat? Any help's greatly appreciated.

I don't understand, more information needed, or at least explain it better.

White never covers in one coat, NEVER! But, if you are insistent on trying to cover in one coat, try SW's Duration.

You did prep the surface right?

And I am confused too. Is A-100 a tint base of something without pigment added? What brand and sheen is the paint? Waterbased?
