If a house with flat cedar boards has been oiled, can the surface be treated to remove the oil and then painted?
It is mildewed and blackened over the years and the owner wants paint.I have read several articles that really discourage attempting this.

You do not want to paint it. It sounds like it will need to be corn cob or glass blasted and start over again. Maybe sanded. If they want the paint look use a solid color stain.
