We believe our old house was shingle sided back in 30's-40's? It isn't pretty. We would like to paint it, can we and with what?
Shingles are made like roofing material.
HELP!

Use Benjamin Moore's alkyd oil primer and a low lustre LATEX top coat, also Ben. Moore. Spray both primer and latex with an airless sprayer ( Wagner airless sprayers are at Lowes or Home Depot ). Use the " spray and brush" method....use the sprayer to get the material on the shings and then brush it out, SMALL sections at a time. Otherwise, you shall have a mess and be hitting this board again for more advice. Good luck and keep us posted!!!
