Guess i'm first.
I cam here from /r/paint a forum for painters. Just curious on what other options are available since they are not very active. Hopefully we can be friends (My wife says I really need them)
Happy to make your acquaintance!

Whoops, did not read correctly thought this was the painter forum. My apologies! :P :-X :'(

I live in a mobile home and can't afford good quality plywood for my skirting.  I go to a local moving and storage company when they're tearing down crates.  I don't think this 3/8ths ply is waterproofed so I painted it with oil base paint.  Unfortunately there's no shade in my spot and the UV is really mean to anything outside.  Should I be using exterior latex instead ?  Thanks  :-\
welcome...given the sub-straight you described you should be ok for a few years, even switching products wont make that much difference...you should be using pressure treated base plate where wood meets dirt or concrete,,,, etc........ iow at the bottom...painting all 6 sides of each piece (or including edges)of plywood before installing is what is going to produce additional longevity ...good luck

Never start a job without color selection being made ahead of time, never.
If they decide to change after starting, then they get charged for what you already did.

 Recently Mississauga handyman painting services (https://mississaugahandyman.com/services/mississauga-house-painting-service/) was doing a job for a homeowner who wasted a very large amount of our time making a color selection choice. If someone takes just a few minutes maybe even half an hour to come up with the color that they want to paint their walls with that's okay but when the homeowner has sampled half a dozen colors and then have us start painting and then decides not to continue with that color what do you do with all that lost time and effort
How does one handle this type of situation to prevent this loss?

I agree, it's all about the money. But then again what isn't?
It will make sense to the DIY because it sounds so much simpler. And it may even be less expensive.

Trust me it is not, at least for  we professional painters. For the home owner that really does not care or know what a good paint job looks like, well maybe.
