The latex paint on my exterior stucco wall is peeling and blistering in places. In some places the paint appears to be well adhered to the wall but when I start peeling in the bad areas the paint continues to peel off right into the areas I felt were well adhered. I can tell where bad areas are by tapping the wall; the sound is hollow in the bad areas, but here again I am fooled because areas that sound solid, indicating the paint is well adhered, often peel off.
I am wondering what is the best way to remove the paint. Scrapping is out of the question because that would scare the stucco finish. Peeling the paint by hand would be a tremendous task, one that I am not up to doing. I have a 1700 PSI pressure washer that I don't think would damage the stucco. I would appreciate the advice and suggestions from anyone who has had a similar problem of removing paint from stucco. I thank you in advance.
