changing from exterior oil paint to latex
Hi, I posted this a few hours ago, but just realized that I entered it into another thread, So sorry.
My question for the experts here:
Today I had a quote for painted my windows. The rep told me that we can no longer buy oil paint here (Ontario, Canada) and said that they would use BM Aura. She said that they would wash, scuff/sand, and paint two coats of Aura and that no priming was necessary. I am concerned about the durability of this. My last paint job has lasted twenty years!!!!
I called my local BM dealer and it is true there is no longer any oil paint, but when I asked if there was any in the basement, he said yes. So, I could still get some, but I forget exactly what product he said he had.
Now, if the painters won't do this, do you think...
A) Go with the two coats of Aura
B) Buy the oil paint and find a private painter
I really need a good paint job that will last.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
