For literally DECADES I have been repainting my front patio annually
with a dark red oil-based paint from Benjamin Moore. I heard they
were phasing it out, so I bought extra cans, but they're now used up.
The local BM store said I have to treat the existing coverage with an
oil-based primer before repainting with the new water-based (tfui!)
stuff, which is apparently all that's allowed now in California.
This seems counter-intuitive. Why would I have to prime with
an oil-based product to prepare for a water-based cover?
Your wisdom appreciated.
(Also, where can I order out of state for the Good Stuff
without paying a fortune in S&H?)
