That would be kinda like digging a ditch with a toothpick. It could be done, but I sure wouldn't wanna have to do it.

A big fluffy roller wouldn't be so bad.

Those damned ocean side dwellers are cheap. At least make sure it's a 100% acrylic, the Storm Stain Cat4 is, either the 412 or 418 would work. 418 it's specs actually say to thin 10% and it's a great primer to itself.

Yes, California is nice, but I have become very frustrated with the BC as a paint store. I wish Cali would find another retailer in the area to sell its product. The Ace in Rockport has become a half decent store. Not the pest of paints, but they are carrying a lot of good Zinsser products, and now Carry Zar poly and stain, Sikkens (which I have not tried yet), and Vermont Natural Coatings. I was amazed at what they were carrying when I was in there the other day.

If that what he want, I'll tell the owner to kiss the warranty goodbye

I know, you're not the only one. And I do keep mentioning that to the rep. but not a lot that can be done until they move the department and get 1-2 paint guys in their, they just can't find anyone to work it. Their other downfall is they're an LBM dealer (lumbermen's buying group) which prohibits them from associating with a True Value or another Co-Op who could really help them out in a lot of ways.
I will mention Ace in Rockport (Smith's right?) to them next time we talk.

If the homeowner is tired of the stain wearing out he should go with Rubbol solid . Seems to hold up damn well to extreme weather.

The Condo owner that originally contacted me has asked to give him a price to do it with a primer first and then two coats of solid stain.

I hated doing exteriors at the coast so it's jobs like that which cause me to drop to my knees and thank the Lord that I only do interiors these days - and even those are usually far inland.

I just did some work for a house today right on the coast, and it took a beating this past winter (more than normal). A lot of wet wood under the paint. I have been working for this guy for years, and if he was not constantly taking care of it, it would take very little time for it to be beyond repair.

I don't understand this, although we discussed it in another thread. You can use normal oil primer (like for paint) prior to using stain? Doesn't the primer seal the wood? Isn't the stain supposed to penetrate the wood?

Like Pete said, just trying to learn here Exteriors are a b... for prep and product choices.

It's not only what the weather and conditions do to the exteriors, but out here it's the very short season, and often, very short work days. Doing a coast house one time and by the time the surface had dried out, the wind had picked up making spraying almost impossible. Then, around 2:00, the fog started creeping in. Arrrggghhh...
