Advice for Painting the Exterior of an Older Home | Benjamin Moore Near Me

So, you’ve got an older home. Looking for Benjamin Moore Near Me — check out Village Paint! Your Benjamin Moore dealer.

You can’t really scape the paint, becasue it just has a lot of finish on it from over the years.

You’ve cleaned it up the best you can. So what do we do to try to keep your new finish on the best and for the longest amount of time?

I will send you home with an oil-based slow-dry primer. The question becomes why, and why slow-dry? Because the slow-dry impregnates into the finish and helps to seat the old finish down so when you top-coat, it doesn’t peel as quick or maybe not at all.

So that type of primer is made for something that is alligatored, something we’re trying to seat down the best we can, to get new finish over the top of it. That’s when that primer’s used.
