Cedar Bleeding Question ?

Hello:

For a house that has siding painted with a white latex paint that is experiencing "some" bleeding by the Cedar siding:

Is there any paint that is a combination of primer and paint that if now applied would prevent any additional bleeding ? Guess it would also have to be latex-true?

How do folks handle a problem like this generally, now that the house is already
painted ?

Thank you,
B.

Generally I would think a stain-blocking exterior oil primer would do the trick nicely, with a quality latex top-coat. While you don't want to put latex paint on top of an oil finish coat without substantial prep, I don't think you have the same problems with oil primers.

If the idea of any oil-based anything on the house makes you nervous, you could try a latex stain-blocking primer like SW ProBlock, but they are not as effective as their oil-base cousins.

Generally I prefer to not use any oil base paint/primer over fresh latex but using a solvent primer is the only way to insure that the stain is blocked.

Did you not reprime the new cedar?

Hi,

Thanks for all the help.

Just an "in case" hypothetical question.

Still deciding on what to do.

Regards,
Bob
