What is the best way to prep exterior siding (T-111)? The existing paint is peeling in some places but not to an extreme. If I pressure wash it, how long should I wait before putting an oil based primer?

Thanks

If you live here in TX you can prime it in about 10 minutes (just kidding, it's been up to 108 degrees)

After you presure wash it, I would go around with a scraper and make sure all the lose or peeling paint was removed. Depending on your weather as to when you can prime, I would at least wait a day.

Remember the primer and paint needs to be exterior and I would suggest from a pro paint store for best results.
