I have a 100+ year old two story house with wood siding that the paint starting to chip off. I have a couple general questions regarding the project that I am hoping you can assist.
1) I am not super fond of heights so I am looking for an alternative to using an extension ladder. I would love to use some scaffolding but this project will likely take me several weeks and I am looking to not spend a ton of money. I am considering buying a tall (15-20 ft) a-frame step ladder. Would that be a decent solution?
2) I am pretty sure the last time it was painted, the previous owner used a flat latex paint. Should I use that again or would a semi-gloss be a better long term solution?
3) Brush vs sprayer. Is it possible to get a good, solid coat of paint with a sprayer? I would love to avoid doing this again in a couple years LOL
