Question about House painting:

The addition to my house that I have been working on for the past 2 yearsis nearly finished. FINALLY!! Now we are repainting the house. I'm planning to paint right over the old paint. But there are new parts that need to be primed. I have a few partially full cans of old exterior paint that will not be used as the final color. Can I use them up as primer?

Yes, especially primers over bare wood in the middle of the summer. And most interior paints I thin 10-30%. I don't do it to save money, the difference in the amount of paint used is negligible, it simply makes them easier to work with and I can still get a good finish. I rarely screw with exterior paint though.

And don't confuse Kilz2 with regular Kilz, there's a big difference.

Well You are a 20 year vet at it-and could probably thin the paint in your sleep-Frankie is obviously a novice (hence the advice thread) so thinning is probably not the best advice. I had a painting co for 15 years-I rarely thinned stuff down -unless it was inside trim work. But to each his own.

Not the best advice? Whatever. If you enjoy making something twice as much work than it needs to be then that's your business, I'm just trying to help the guy out.

The old paint can be used for primer, but you'll need to make sure it's not broken down. The only way to check is to taste the paint. If its broken down it won't leave a stain on your tongue. If it does leave a stain it should be OK to use. I hope this helps.

If it is left over and not going to use leave the lid open and let it dry and then toss it in the garbage when it drys out.

Okay you told him to use shitty kilz which is just about as watery as you can get-then use water to thin it down even more-and then put it over bare wood. First freeze that paint is popping like popcorn.

A GOOD oil primer is ALL I would Ever use outside on bare wood.

But whatever-I am not insulting you are your expierence. To me latex exterior primer is just about worthless.

Not really I have painted my house befor, inside and out. But I used primer and the paint straight out of the can. This was a question on the possibility of using up the cans of paint in my tool room as primer.

touchy touchy little buggy, sorry to question your GOD like authority on painting. If you want to use a watered down latex primer on your home-go ahead. Frankie might as well primer with a fuggin magic marker-it would last longer.

BTW-I started my business with a paint brush and roller-and when I left (because of my kids) I had upwards of 10 employees and more business than I could handle. I NEVER had to come back to a house I painted and fix shit. I have went through thousands of gallons of paint-so I DO know a bit about painting.

But I guess Your opinion is better than Anybodies else-and if someone disagrees with you-they don't know Shit.

OK a minor health setback prevented me from tackling this painting job until this past weekened. I had all my paint and purchased an air gun from Wal-Mart. It started out OK but turned into a semi disaster in short order. The paint guy had me pick up my air spray gun from their automotive dept. It started clogging up after initially working well. I think the viscocity for automotive paint is a lot less than for house paint (even after the recommended thinning the house paint). I returned the gun and now am looking for a suitable spray gun for my air compressor. Any ideas about were to go for a good deal and how much I should expect to pay? Any help is really appreciated. This is a good weather week and I don't wanna miss out on it.
