Anonymous Staff asked 4 years ago

I am going to paint the exterior of my house which has HardiPlank siding and cedar trim. Which would be better, using two coats of solid color stain (i.e. Sherwin Williams Woodscapes) or using one coat primer (i.e. Bullseye 123) and one coat paint (i.e. Sherwin Williams SuperPaint)?

It's up to you… but if you Paint it… use an Exterior Oil Primer, then finish coat with Acrylic (Flat works best on those materials)… Staining will probably give you a more maintenance free finish over the years… Painting always requires repainting every 7-10 years…
