Default Exterior painting

I'm painting a house with hardy board siding and cedar trim. The trim is getting solid stain and siding gets duration. Just wondering how you guys tackle this. I assume you don't want to get the paint on trim, so I'm staining trim first then masking off trim and spraying siding. Is there a faster or more efficient way? Thanks in advance.

I would spray the siding and brush and roll the trim after ( I try to minimize masking)

Don't spray close to the trim and back brush to the trim.

We've developed an efficient, tidy way to do this. In light of recent events, I'm going too keep it to myself for a while:-)

If you're a competent enough sprayman, CD's approach is is a good one.

This may sound a bit hackish. But what is wrong with getting the paint on the trim if it's getting a solid stain. That stuff can go over paint.

Solid stain is what h.o wanted. If i paint where stain is going them stain won't soak in. The sides of trim get painted like standard hardy board and miratech trim

To me its a little backwards. Makes more sense for the body to get stain and the trim, duration.

I have not used a lot of solid stain, but I thought that solid stains do not soak in. They create a film like paint, which they are not great for decking.

I will spray close to the trim myself, I wont let the crew I make them back brush to it. If the colors are close enough we don't worry about a little over spray on the trim.

IIRC, James Hardie is pretty adamant about not using SC stains on their siding.

Sorry, I didn't realize that you were just facing off the trim. In that case, I'd use a shield and do the best you can. As Pete wrote, SC stains are basically thin paints and don't soak in. So it doesn't much matter if you get some overspray on the trim.

Oops. Overlooked that. Still the stain on the trim doesn't make any sense to me.

My research says that sc stain does soak into wood

Curious. A number of mfg. suggest priming before SC stain for light colors on bleed-prone woods. We also seen it peel enough to indicate that it certainly doesn't soak in very far.

I still wouldn't worry about overspray. Solid stain is nice because it can go over bare wood or previously painted surfaces. Not saying I would opt for it over paint on painted surfaces but I definitely wouldn't spend the time trying not to get any paint on the trim.

Update: had already finished trim on half of house yesterday. I continued to mask and spray siding. After you get a good system it actually goes faster than you would think. Yeah it uses a lot of tape and paper but it would have taken two coats to cover overspray on trim. Now it's finished and lines look good. I work alone and this is a huge house so I'm all for spending more on tape and saving time

Why wouldn't you spray the siding and back roll...then brush and roll the trim...

A little paint isn't going to hurt that cedar...

As long as we're asking questions. Why would you bankroll Hardie ?

You backroll Hardie if you aren't skilled enough to spray an even coat I guess.
