    Default Exterior "Honey Board" on 1950's home

    On the north side of our 1950's ranch, we have what painters have called "honey board". Paint only stays put for a couple of years and then begins to peel, all layers at once, down to the honey board. We've had contracted painters but will be doing the painting by ourselves this time. What primer should we use? Sanding? Thanks for your help.

    Never heard the term honey board. I'm imagining it is a very sappy section of pine. Key for me is to add turpentine to the primer, and to the finish paint Obviously this must be oil paint. Fight fire with fire. Turpentine is refined from pine rosin.
    Otherwise replace the bad board
    Remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set.
