I have a Queen Anne Victorian with a Victorian metal shingle roof. It has been painted several times in it's 116 year old life. Now most of it is peeling but what is stuck is really stuck, but it will peel also eventually and I don't want to paint over it. I have found an industrial coating (NOT elastomeric) that I want to use but all the existing paint has got to be removed. Light scraping with something on a long handle is not going to cut it. I live in a small town and am having trouble even finding anyone willing to go up there and do anything. Does anyone have any ideas about the best, most efficient method that will do the least damage to the shingles? I do not want to pressure wash because I am afraid of blowing holes in the shingles, which I did when I tried it on the front porch. Suggestions anyone?
