I am repainting the cedar siding on my house. Since I have a sprayer, I'm hoping to save time by spraying. The question I have is:
How best to prepare the "channel" component of the siding? The channel is a 1" wide smooth slot, about 1/4" deep, not unlike a dado.The raised surface of the siding is about 4" wide.
I'm not having much in the way of peeling with the existing paint.
My plan at the moment is to scrape the rough portions, power wash, spray paint and then backroll the rough raised sections of the cedar. My theory is that there is not much point to back rolling or brushing the 1" wide channel.
Does that make sense? Am I making a mistake?
