This two story house had some serious peeling problems. It seems like many of the houses in this neighborhood are having the same problems so it leads me to believe there was a problem with the siding or the original builder. There were large sections of paint that needed to be removed before we were able to prepare and paint the house. We removed the majority of the peeling paint with our pressure washer and then hand scraped the rest until all the paint that was left was securely attached to the house.
We then primed all the bares spots and did the rest of our preparation as usual.
