What Paint to Use?

Posted by nu_homeowner (My Page) on

Looking for recommendations on paint.

I am painting a wooden entryway (exterior). I stripped off about 4 coats of paint to the bare wood, applied 2 coats of primer and caulk (where needed). The primer was zinser 1,2,3.

Any suggestions as to what type and brand of paint i should use? Thanks in advance...

Well...ya started off with a stud primer!
(stay with a top-notch, Satin-latex at least sheen)

There's lotsa good paints out there.
What retailers are in your area?
Smaller paint-shops sometimes have the best paints.


RE: What Paint to Use?

I had to paint my wood fence and used Porter Paints. They were very helpful with the selection of paint, how to put it on etc...the job turned out very well. I have used this brand in the past when I painted my other home and will use them again.
