The good oil base paint that used to last is in the past as to many of the chemicals that made it good have been outlawed. Look how fast paint fades nowadays. Two basic facts- oil base paint will peel and latex will wear off. Take your choice. I have painted a large number of barns outbuildings and homes in the past 17 years and tried many of the "old tips" etc plus follow the directions on the can and in the end I would always recommend prime followed by the top- coat. A solid stain is good and I have had good luck with Cabot brand. For white buildings I will use a white primer followed by a top quality latex satin topcoat. One other thing to think about is if you wait until fall oil base paint will take a couple days to dry and collect all the fall bugs while it is drying. That was when I started using latex and found done right it will be better then oil.

Saw the same on my folks farm. Pressure wash with just enough pressure to peal off the paint but do not boar into the wood. Let dry for several HOT days. Also agree that the newer laytex paints "in the real high price range"do work VERY well. Jeffcat
