Very confused here. Have been using SW A-100 oil primer on exterior of 1897 home, top-coating with Duration. Is this compatible? Wondering if need to switch to a latex or acrylic based on some comments. Also, harsh south exposure; What is best to use as topcoat for less fading, more resilience?

This is fine, actually the oil primer is better than the acrylics in my opinion. The Duration will stick just fine to this primer.

Duration, or any good exterior acrylic paint, is the best finish when compared to oil base paints. Keep using the Duration.
