Default Paint for Ext Trim

I am doing trim of a home near the ocean. After scraping, there is lots of bare wood that needs priming. I think some of the paint I scraped off was lead based.

Should I use oil primer? What brand would you suggest.

Thanks.

Is this a DIY project?

No. I am a small time handyman and I am doing it for a friend. Most of the paint jobs I do are far away from the ocean or interior.

Thanks.

The reason I asked is because most new members do not come on here talking about potential unsafe lead practices.

Use an exterior slow dry oil based primer for all the raw spots. If you suspect it is lead you need to take the steps to deal with it. Even if it means someone else doing the job. There have been some new lead laws come into affect this month and you should browse the lead section for your own benefit.

I'd just use a quality stain..Try one of the hybrid stains like Flood...You could also use an acrylic stain if it is scuffed up and sanded..
