I was pressure washing the old paint off my house and from a distance
it noticed all the paint was coming off quite nicely in one area.
After I was done and upon further inspection, I noticd I managed the

patches, then paint. Alternatively, if the shingles are textured like
shakes, I'd use a whisk broom to texture the patch before it's fully set up,
then prime and paint. You may need two applications of patch in the real
