What type of paint should I use on a historical home in San Antonio?
Painting a historical home in San Antonio can be tricky since the age of the wood siding and trim, if original, can be rotted. There are several options to deal with wood rot. You can replace the rotted boards, but you may have to have to siding milled if that pattern isn’t available any longer. The second option is to use a wood putty or epoxy like Abatron Wood Products. You cannot just paint over rotted wood or you will be wasting money. The surface that the paint is applied to needs to be solid and prepped well before you paint.
