Default exterior systems

O K guys whats your most used system for exterior repaints. We have alot of stucco here in Florida with either vinyl or wood trim so I usually do Loxon conditioner and 2 coats of super paint. I just bid a job where I suggested spot prime and 1 coat of duration. 2 week project to save labor. Any favorites?

I agree with Premier; a full prime coat with tinted bonding primer and topcoat with Permanizer. I dont care what they say about self priming paints!

Pressure wash, use primarily Conseal on stucco/settlement cracks, Loxon Conditioner and Loxon topcoat. I generally lead people away from Superpaint on stucco as most of my clients would not gain much of an additional benefit from it.

Please explain why there would not be much of a benefit!

Superpaint is a better product, however most of my clients are not seeing the need for a 25 year paint over a 15 (or 12 year year, or 20 year etc.) paint when they plan on selling or repainting for no other reason than "change" in 10 years. I offer Superpaint to them but rarely have any takers. Same thing with Loxon XP, that stuff is just overkill.

I hate it when customers say they don't want to use a lifetime/25 year paint because they will just change the color in 10 years. Superpaint is the lowest I paint with because of how good it looks for years. I'm still fairly new to painting (only 5 years) but when it comes to convincing my customers to use at least Superpaint I find it to be the easiest part of my sale. Simply tell them do you still want your house looking good in 10 years, or looking like you need a new paint job regardless if you want one or not. Not only that but protecting the siding to prevent costly repairs which could add up down the road.

Remember in my area the vast majority of homes are stucco or CBS which is what Loxon is designed for. If taken care of, there will not be a real noticable difference between it and Superpaint in 10 years, homeowners that don't maintain thier homes, well thats where I come in.

superpaint is my economy paint, I will only go up from there. I can't imagine starting lower, the cost difference is so minimal compared to the extra quality
