PrepRead the Lead Warning in Cautions section. Clean surface thoroughly. Remove dirt, grease and oil with a non-residue all-purpose cleaner. Wash dirt from protected areas, such as under eaves. Remove loose or peeling paint and rust with a wire brush. Dull glossy areas with gloss remover, sandpaper or steel wool. Caulk cracks and crevices around windows, doors and trim. Prime unpainted wood or badly weathered surfaces with a first coat of Oil House Primer before painting. For metal roofs, tin or iron surfaces, gutters and downspouts, make sure surface is clean. Remove all loose paint, rust and scale before painting. Prime with a rust-inhibitive metal primer. Do not paint in hot sunlight. Clean mildew from the surface: Mildew is a fungus that looks like dirt, but won’t wash off. Mildew must be removed before finishing or it will grow through any new coating. To remove mildew, scrub with a commercial mildew remover or a solution of 1 part liquid chlorine bleach to 3 parts of water. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Protect eyes and skin by wearing protective equipment including rubber gloves and eye goggles when working with bleach solution.
ApplicationPaint only when surface and air temperatures are above 50 °F (10 °C). Stir paint thoroughly before and while painting. Do not apply late in the day or when dew or rain is likely. Moisture or high humidity will adversely affect adhesion of paint film. Start painting at the highest point and work from left to right. Paint the gutters and downspouts and then the windows and frames. To prevent sticking, move windows up and down after four hours. Next, do the siding. Brush paint well into the surface. Always finish up at a door, window or outer edge. Do not stop painting in the middle of an empty space. Do not thin.
