We have recently bought a 15 year old house in NE PA that has never
been painted since it was new. In places, the paint has flaked off and
in other places it is fine. We also have much dirt in certain areas.
We live in a VERY heavily wooded area and trees grow fairly close to
My question is, will a 1750 psi power washer do the job? Or will I
need something more heavy duty/higher psi? I can have free access to a
1750 psi washer which is why I ask.
Next, when I paint, should I prime the ENTIRE house or just the spots
that I take down to bare wood? What primer and/or paint is
recommended for the NE climate with its cold winters and hot summers?
Many thanks for all your help!
