Well there are quite a few primer choices nowadays: All-purpose latex primer, acrylic exterior primer, oil-based primer, shellac primer and breathable, oil-based primer. For most exterior wood in reasonably good shape, I would pick a high-quality acrylic primer. It remains elastic and permeable so moisture can "breathe" through the paint skin. This will decrease the chance of the paint bubbling and peeling due to moisture in the walls.Hi All,
Should I prime wood with water or oil based paint primer?
Thanks in advance.
