Default Hello all with a question on paint quality

I licensed in CA for General Building, General Engineering, Framing, Asbestos.

I've been picking up smaller projects recently that require fewer trades associated with the job. That's what I'm here!

Basically, I have a few questions. I am EPA certified for lead and going to bid on a project tomorrow morning. The house is about seventy years old with sturdy as can be paint. However, the last time the building was painted was in the late seventies and used a lead based paint.

My concern isn't the lead, but more along the lines of materials and suppliers recommended for this task.[/font]

My bid will include a few custom window replacements, stucco patchwork, minor siding repair and paint.[/font]

The questions are:

I will first repair siding then all damaged areas of paint, power wash, reglaze the windows not to be replaced, then install the new windows, repair the stucco, then prime with 123 with a dark tint to give greater coverage of the two paint coats. Which brand of exterior do you, the painting pros, recommend for this application? Should I use Benjamin, Valspar, Behr premium ultra plus... ect...? I'm going to shoot using a 12" wide fan w/ a high volume tip and roll over for the 123, then paint with the same tip for the paint but not roll over.

The price of the materials is of the least concern for the owner and I would like to offer a materials warranty from myself based on the manufacturer. However, I don't want to be ripped off when a similar quality product is offered at a lower price.

Thanks for all of your help!

I think the guys here will recommend you Behr and Valspar.

The rest you already have it figured out.

Thanks for your help aztec!

To the rest...

Simple and no BS answers are the easiest to give; they also require less hot air. I'm highering on new labor for this project with painting and prep experience. Not licensed painters.

Well,I'm an SW guy, but product would be determined by the condition of the substrate??? I would typically recommend Super Paint or Duration but sometimes these heavier products can pull the older coats away.If it were me in your position I would actually have a Rep. from each company come out and give their recommendation along with a written product warranty from them directly to the HO.Couple that with your labor warranty and you should be good to go!!!

Purchase a higher end grade from one of your local paint stores. Stay away from the box stores. If you use SW, BM, PPG, ICI or any other reputable dealer you will be on the right track as most all paint stores will have a nice product for you to use. Which store usually comes down to a combination of preference, location and price.

i would use dunn edwards ultra-grip primer. dunn edwards evershield semi gloss(formerly permasheen). unless is by the ocean, then id use oil. gripper is better than 123 i think
you probably already know you cant pressure wash lead without capturing all the water.
