Painting exterior walls is quite different from painting interior walls because of the variety of siding types available and the equipment needed for working off the ground.
Siding material ranges from cedar lap, board and bat, and slate, to masonite, stucco and masonry. Each requires slight technique variations, but all follow the same basic principles discussed in this section. The type of siding may dictate what you use to apply paint. Brushes, rollers, and sprayers all have advantages and disadvantages.
