On your house or garage when you paint. I am looking for your opinions. Which is your choice, pros and cons. I am using water based paint. I have used all three methods. Just wondering what you all think. Noel

Brush.  Everytime I've seen a house sprayed the paint doesn't stick and eventually peels off in sheets.  Maybe that's poor prep work ect, but for that reason I won't spray.

I agree.  ONLY way to get a good spray job is to use the spray to put the paint on and a good brush to work it in.  Spray put the pain on, not in.  22years ago I brush painted a 2 story Victorian house I owned in town.  Used True Value's best paint. Painted a beige over lead based barn Red one coat and no primer.  It is now ready for a new coat of paint.  So the only way to put paint on is by Brush as far as I am concerned.

Last Saturday in  4 1/2 hours we painted my BILs house and garage with an airless sprayer. Third time I've used a sprayer and it was well worth it. My son in law is a 3rd generation painter and he said that if the prep work is done right a sprayer is the best way to go with someone following up with a roller and small brush. 40' X 24' X 10' house and 36' X 28' garage and we used 10 1/2 gallons of water base paint / stain. SIL says his dad still prefers to brush and roll but with the advance with sprayers and labor and materials cost he says it's more efficient and cleaner to spray. JM2CW.   Good luck.                                                                   Roger

Vinyl IS FINAL

As long as it is white and no hail comes along.  The only thing that changes faster than vinyl siding colors is the weather.

Pressure wash first. The pressurewasher can then be used for GTs. I have preferred a brush when I have to paint but I put vinyl on my new house because I am getting to old to paint. Make sure it is clean and dry. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks for all the info. I use a spray gun that you would spray a car with. I enlarged the outlet hole some to help it spray the thicker paint. I would say one of those air-less sprayers would be a good thing, as Hamman said. Any way, I am not one who realy enjoys painting the house. But when I am at it, it try and do the best job I can, with what I have to work with, including myself. Noel

I've sprayed houses and 20 years later they still looked great! Might be the quality of the paint. Most box stores paint is junk!
