Are you sure it is not solid stain, when paint peels from rough cedar
scraping easily ruins the wood its so soft. Get a pro to confirm what it
is, if its shakes, one can be removed, Sherwin Williams or other
companies have labs if the store employees cant tell what it is, you are
not supposed to stain over paint.
Unfortunately,the siding isn't shakes.
its definitely paint on the wood. The stain I'm refering to is made to
stain over paint. Really. Is there any difference between stain that
goes over paint and paint itself?
