Exterior paint stripper?

Post by Crazy L »

Is there such a thing?

The previous owner of my house built a leaky conservatory on the back of the side building........cutting a long story short, the exterior walls have a pebbledash rendering, and this muppet painted it with a shatty magnolia exterior paint and I would appreciate any info on what would strip it off. I have tried no nonsense paint stripper, and modern nitromors, and they are a load of toss. Sand blasting is a very last resort.

Thanks in advance chaps

Guess the question is why do you weant to strip, rather than just paing over?

If you are stripping becasue you are woried about next coat sticking maybe a acrilic primer? This stuff is cheap and sticks to anything.

Hi

I'm after it coming off as the rest of the house isn't painted, and isn't going to be. when I pull down the crappy conservatory, I'll have a section of exterior wall that is magnolia. Not nice in this instance.

I'm guessing by the absolute barrage of replies :-P , that my only real course of action is to have the bastid shot blasted.

Yes that is likely the only option, and even then the result probably won't be that great. Soda blasting is probably what you will need to use, anything too aggressive will cause too much damage, pebble dashing isn't the most resilient finish to begin with.
