Q:

Hello, my parents home has shingles that are in need of paint. the current paint is flaking off in spots, can i scrape the paint and then power wash the house? The shingles have been on the house for over 50 years and are in great shape. Just peeling paint. Im lucky as the house is painted white, so its an easy re=paint job. I just want to do it right the first time. Any info would be greatly appreciated! I ve heard horror stories about dealing with shingles! :~)
