Using the same colors–greenish/gray siding, tan trim, burgundy under the eaves. Which do I paint first? Do I have to tape off to cut in? That would take forever, and I am doing this by myself since hubby has broken leg.
thanks 🙂

First, wash all surfaces with rag and water, and TSP Cleaner, and Garden Hose (NO POWER WASHING!!!)…do the soffets first (under eaves area), then do the siding, then the trim…

Learn how to Cut with a Brush… no taping is ever necessary… See my web page on Brushing (Cutting): //

Good Luck!

If you spray then the siding would be first as this is the largest area. The rest is done by hand- brush and roll. Taping isn't needed but some practice with a brush might help.
