    Oxidized paint

    I have to give a bid for a 3 story house that the paint has oxidized on the south side,where the sun hits it all the time.What is the best product out there to take this off with as I don't want to get on a lift to get to it if I don't have too.

    Is there a spray on rinse off cleaner for this,I was thinkin TSP with a reagular house mix.

    If the siding you're attempting to clean is aluminium, it is probably 20 yrs old and very oxidized.

    Attempting to remove the oxidation may result in BARE METAL, this may not be your desired result.

    The thickness of paint on aluminium siding is determined by the manufacture and may be very thin depending on the quality and warranty of the siding.

    If you just want to get it clean, leave the oxidation and use a very diluted bleach solution. I would even skip the soap as some soaps remove oxidation and this may cause streaking.

    You might consider just taking a pass and not do the job at all. This kind of work can be a major can of worm as the siding is very old and may not even be able to be cleaned.

    I have been cleaning aluminium siding for 19 years and there are some jobs I just pass on because I know it will go bad and I don't want to be the one re painting a house for free.

    Thanks for the replies men.The house is being preped for paint so and streaks or marks will be painted over.What I'm trying to do is prep it for the painters so the paint will stick.

    The siding is hardi-plank I gues I should've said that in the first post.Th epeak in the south gable has to be 40 ft from the ground and of course this is the bad side, the rest of the house is pretty basic.

    Just to cover my backside, I would write on the contract that cleaning is for paint prep and some paint loss may occur and you will not be expected to repaint. Have home owner initial. It takes care of he said she said.
