Exterior house preperation, priming & painting?

Stu asked 5 years ago

I have a Red Cedar shingled house in severe need of a paint job.I live in the New England area. The last time the house was painted was with Benjamin Moore Latex paint. Three of the four sides that get the most sun exposure are peeled. What would be the best method to prepare the surface for painting. Scrapping, sanding, power washing? Latex or oil Primer? Should I prime the entire surface or just bare wood?
