I own a mid-century home that is about 50 years old and about 50% of the home is covered in redwood siding that has been painted over the years. is it possible to strip the paint via dustless blasting or another method and not damage the siding? Ideally, I would like to get the siding back to its natural state and not paint it. Thank you in advance for your feedback


The blasting will "fuzz" the wood and will have to be sanded after. It's possible, but may be cheaper to just apply new siding. We have always had problems when blasting lap siding and having it come out looking good.
