Latex over oil
My interior wood trim/door casings have oil-based paint and I want to cover it with latex. Instead of deglossing, one painter emailed me this suggestion:
"Why don't you cover it with a clear flat finish, instead of sanding it? Sanding can't be done evenly, which means you might sand down to bare wood in some areas & not other areas, but if you painted over it, it would all be perfectly even. Also, sanding would leave it rough, which would attract dirt. It's better to leave is smooth & flat."
Do you agree with what he says?
Thanks in advance!
