Default Exterior painting

Guys,

Newbie here.

I am planning to paint the entire house this July4. My wall is masonary/concrete.

I am planning to spray using a wagner paint crew sparyer.

Anyways, my question is the rafters/wood coming from the house, I like to have the same color as the exterior of the wall. Would you recommend spraying vs using a brush in my situation?

On the front side (not sure what u call it - flashboard?). I will paint it a different color using a brush for a cleaner look.


Tony

Spraying under your overhangs will be much quicker, though you may ned to do a few touch-ups with the brush. The inside corners are the most difficult to cover. Resist the temptation to lay it on thick with the sprayer, it will run.

Thanks for the response.

I painted the popcorn ceiling and had over run.

My goal is to do it in one coat. Old color is very light yellow. New color is going to be tan.
