Cedar House- Nightmare

Dawn asked 6 years ago

This house was built in the 80’s; cedar siding and peeling everywhere. Not really sure what’s on it in the previous coats, but now has a solid stain. Not sure just yet if its oil or latex. I definitely need to power wash it and scrape it. Do I need to caulk every bored? Is it best to use an oil primer and what kind is best for cedar? The home owners said the previous owners always had a problem with peeling, I’m guessing they never let the cedar dry before painting. Is it better to reuse stain or can I use paint? I’m sure your busy but am hesitating to start this large job. Thank you.
