My son owns a nearly 100 year old Craftsman bungalow with ship lap wooden siding. When he bought it a year and a half ago, it was freshly painted. Now, the paint is lifting with space under it. I could peel off pieces with my fingernail, if I wanted to. I think it is going to be a nightmare to repaint. The old paint has to be totally scraped off. Ten years ago, we built a new home with smooth stucco and used Elastomeric paint which has been fabulous. I saw, on a home improvement HGTV show, a spray on liquid vinyl siding which looked great. It is applied, like paint, and lasts 25 years. Does anyone have first hand knowledge of it? Does it look just like paint or does it loop "plastic". I don't want to encourage my son to do something which will destroy his home's vintage appeal but paint just does not last any more.
