That is what I felt as well which led me to ask the question....I thought I would get more opinions but your way seems to go along with my thinking!!!

Thanks Larry

I'm not sure you can poly over latex. I think the poly would melt it...dunno. I suppose you can use a mildew paint. I had the exterior latex left over from when I painted the house so thats why I used it.

I think that would work just fine actually. Don't poly over it though.
