  • Usage
    Properly prepared exterior wood and metal siding and trim including hardboard, fiber cement board, vinyl, primed metal, shakes, cinder block and stucco. Do not use on glazed brick, floors or steps.
  • Prep
    Thoroughly clean the surface and allow to dry. Remove all dirt, dust, chalk, rust, grease, wax and mildew. Previously painted surfaces (including painted metal siding): Scrape off loose and peeling paint, sand smooth, then spot prime. Thoroughly remove chalk by vigorous washing, then rinse. Remove gloss from shiny surfaces. Countersink nails and apply an oil-based metal primer to exposed nail heads. Caulk cracks and joints.Clean mildew from the surface: Mildew is a fungus that looks like dirt but won’t wash off. Mildew must be removed before painting or it will grow through any new coat of paint. To remove mildew or suspected mildew, scrub surface before painting with a commercial mildew remover or a solution of 1 part liquid chlorine bleach to 3 parts water. Rinse thoroughly. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Protect skin and eyes by wearing rubber gloves and eye goggles when working with bleach solution.Bare Wood: Remove sap from knots and sappy areas. Spot prime with a stain-blocking primer/sealer. Prime entire area with a latex or oil-based exterior primer.Hardboard Siding: (unprimed, primed or previously painted): Remove any wax from bleed-through areas by wiping with rags soaked with mineral spirits. Turn rags often to avoid merely spreading wax around. Prime all hardboard with an exterior oil primer.Vinyl Siding/Aluminum Siding: Wash thoroughly and allow to dry. Paint with a color lighter than original siding color. WARNING—Painting with darker colors will cause warping or deformation from heat absorptionGalvanized / Ferrous Metal (Steel, Iron): New galvanized surfaces should be allowed to age 6 months before painting Masonry, Concrete, Stucco, and Block: Brush loose sand, dust and other material from the surface.
