I've got wood fascia boards that need repainting. I plan to take down the brown plastic guttering (to jet wash it clean) repaint the fascia boards and then put the guttering back up.
However, upon closer inspection, ithe wood fascias appears to to have a surface texture that is somewhere between planed all round and rough sawn wood. It also appears to have been originally painted with a wood stain by the builders rather than with a varnish.
So what is already on there, so that I can use the same paint/stain on it of the same colour? Is it the best to be using given our weather?
Is cleaning of the fascia boards sufficient or have I got to get my electric sander out?
