Hi guys and girls. I joined last night looking for help with painting outdoor trim but didn't realize this was a forum for professionals only. So sorry! In any event, I only have one question so maybe I can get my answer here and then cancel my account?

Please let me know. fyi, I tried clicking on the DIYhelp sister forum but it's giving my laptop a hard time.

Thanks in advance for your help. Debbie

Ok, glad I can get my answer here seeing as I'm not a professional (just a homeowner looking for sage advice).

My house was built in 1938, cedar shake shingles over clapboard with what I guess is pine or poplar trim. The front of the house faces west and is in full sun all afternoon. The trim is worn down to the wood. I'd like to paint it but don't want to have to repaint in five years. The paint in New York, even the Benny Moore, is garbage and doesn't last.

I wanted to know if stripping it (one story, 950 s.f. house) and staining it. I have two 4x4 posts holding up my portico (I had that put on in 2009) that I stained only four years ago and the stain is holding up beautifully and does get some sun. I was going to cover the posts but never did ($$$).

Do you think I'd have the same luck with the rest of the original trim? Figured I'd strip with Rock Miracle (works instantly), hit it with a palm sander and go to town with the stain.

Thanks for your help. Debbie

Most Homeowners and Pro Painters always have something to say about Benjamin Moore and is usually about their prices.

This is a first I heard garbage. I think its more of an error on the application.

2 full coats on a properly primed surface will last a lot years.

So you own the home so you don't have to worry about lead paint but that shingles over clapboards could contain asbestos. I wouldn't mess with that at all if it is. That is 100 times more dangerous than lead paint.

As a homeowner who seems to care. You should check into the RRP laws and follow them to protect yourself and any children if you have them.

What stain are you planning on using?

The only ben moore stuff I would say is garbage is their low end stuff but so is every other brands.

I have used BM for 30 years and only failures or breakdowns was their lower quality stuff.

We have painted exteriors with Aura 6 years ago that still look great. We also have them on a yearly washing to keep the home looking great.

That's why I recommended BM Aura or Moorgard/glo.

But here in Texas its $70 a gallon. Some customers don't like that, so we go with Moorgard at $55.

Going to leave this open just a little longer (only because DIY isn't being helpful). So if anyone wants to assist, do it now please.
