Default Best oil based exterior primer under $20?

got a house with paint chipping EVERYWHERE! we don't do allot of jobs where we need prime an entire side, but here we have to prime two huge walls. Right now we use zinsser oil exterior and love it but this house is in such bad shape I really want to give them a super quality prep job. What you guys use? Need something that can be sprayed and back-rolled

Either Fresh Start from Benjamin Moore, or Sherwin William's slow drying exterior oil based primer. Slower drying results in longer lasting finish as it has a chance to really seal the wood.

Is it chipping to bare wood or between coats? What type of wood is it and what is your prep going to be?

California's Troubleshooter long oil is great. I have 10+ year old jobs on ocean front homes still looking good with that primer.

I've used both the BM fresh start penetrating oil and the SW exterior oil with good success. I would recommend reducing the SW primer 10% to make it easier to work with. It's pretty thick right out of the can.

I go with a slow drying oil primer, most paint stores have them so ask your normal store.

I used Muralo exterior linseed oil reinforced oil primer already. It seemed good. Got it at the local hardware store. Anymore all oil primers seem the same to me. I like the fact the Muralo was linseed oil reinforced. It was like 45$ or more a gallon though.

I've used tons of that primer, X-200 I believe it's called? It's not a long dry primer. But to be honest I haven't seen a difference between long dry and quicker dry oil primers.

Nothing beats a long oil for exterior wood. "my opinion" Here in California I know of two products and they only come in quarts - BM's 100 and behr has a slow oil too that is not bad. BM's quart is close to 20 bucks and Behr is around 12 bucks.

Also want to add for that old dried out wood, a coat or two of boiled linseed oil will bring a little life back.

slow drying will always be better than fast drying??
What do you guys think about Zinsser? its $18 per gallon and feels hardcore.

Our prep: house already power washed/removed a ton of loose paint. We r going to run the Milwaukee fiber disk sanders over the entire siding and prime.

I never understood the point of pwashing before sanding myself. You end up with a ton of dust on there. Pwashing never replaced scraping and sanding for me. It never took off more than 30% off wood and if you do it's probably damaging the wood.

Yes there is a difference in primers but if you're looking to save 150 bucks coverstain works ok.
How long have you been painting?
