Default Solid Oil Stain to Acryclic Paint Siding Transition

ey folks,

I'm on a house right now that's covered in an old oil solid stain. It's on smooth clapboard, and it's been built up enough where it's opaque, there's no wood grain showing. The coating has held up well, it's mostly sound.

However, it's pretty flat and it's growing a lot of mold/mildew so we're transitioning to a paint with some sheen. The current finish isn't chalking, so would you do any sort of an intermediary primer step before the acrylic top coat(BM Regal)? If a primer is necessary, any favorites? Must it be oil-based?

Thanks!

Noah

I wouldn’t prime it. Just wash it good and apply a quality acrylic. I’ve done a few like that over the years and they’ve held well. I think the old oil stain acts as a good primer as long as it’s not oxidized.

Default Prime?

I think you are right that you SHOULD be able to do this not priming, my concern if I was doing it that you would get no support if there was a problem. I would suggest using the multi purpose oil stain blocker (024) and then coat it. I am perhaps a bit cautious, but my concern is that with the accumulation on the surface, pressure washing may not get it all off.

I have seen plenty of jobs previously stained with oil and 640, which is pretty much a thinned regal, right over the top. I would be worried about previous stain bleeding through but If oil priming 094 or 366 is the way to go.

What makes you think that?

Assuming the prep is done right, a cleaned, non glossy, intact coating seems like it would fall into the category of a typical repaint. As far as I can tell, there’s nothing in the specs for Regal to preclude treating it as such just because it happens to be oil.

If you call into BM or ask your local rep they will tell you its ok. Regal especially is ok the resin is something like 30% alkyd so good adhesion to previously stained wood as long as its clean and dry.

Thanks for all the input guys. I'm tempted to just go with the Regal, but on a house this size I'm leaning towards a primer as an insurance policy. I know it's more expensive than 024, but thoughts on Mad Dog instead? I know that can be an intermediary between oil and acrylic, it bonds well, and most importantly it's far easier to clean out of my sprayer than 024. Anyone see a reason not do do that?
