Oil based or latex primer for exterior?
I'm very confused. I have an older house that needs repainting outside. There is some bare wood from a new addition we had put on (so eaves, fascia are bare). There is also existing trim that needs to be sanded and painted.
Let's just start with the bare wood. Should I use an oil based or latex primer? The guy at HD recommended a latex primer, which I got and have primed a small section (lots more to go). I have since read that oil based has advantages. What is the best way to go, and why?
Any basic tips appreciated.
