Hi, I am looking to strip the existing paint on the outside of my house, and re-paint it. As of right now, some of the paint ( like near the roof ) is very dirty, and the paint on the sides look really thick and some have little trails that ran off then dried. What is the best way to remove paint ( exterior? )? The painting itself doesn't seem that hard, but it's the removing paint that I am concerned about, not really sure how to tackle it. I guess two possibilities are chemical removers, and heat. Advice please ! EDIT:: Sorry I don't think this is in the appropriate section but I do not see a paints section for exterior... please let me know if I should move this thread.
