How do I remove splatter from shingles?


Is there a good way besides using a power washer to remove latex paint off of asphalt shingles?

I have an overhang where soffit goes directly over the shingles. When I painted the soffit, I also got paint on the shingles. It's white SW super paint on a dark gray shingle, so it stands out.

It will never get direct rain or sun light, so I don't see it fading to much over time.

I have no advice on removing the paint except to say I do not think that you should power wash the shingles You were not directly saying that you would but you did mention it...

Good luck on a remedy, does it actually show to the world or just to you?

I just read on Yahoo answers or somewhere like that to use a power washer.

It basically just shows to me. I doubt anywhere else would notice unless they were looking. Things like that bother me though, since I'm the one that let it happen.

I have thought of that and might do it if nothing else works. It just gives it a less than professional look. So far everything else is looking great.

You know that you can't remove the paint without damaging the shingles.

I've read that and I've also read to use Oops or alcohol.

I did a Google search and someone suggested getting roof repair tar and spreading it over it to make it black and blend in a little.

If I just dust it with gray/blackish spray paint, it will look 100% better and most people won't notice it. It's just a bright white spot on a dark gray shingle.

That would work great. Unfortunately I just cleaned my gutters last week. I had a ton of granules. Hopefully I still have some left to use.

Whatever you do, DON'T use a pressure washer. It will take all of the granules off of the shingles and you will be in worse shape than just some paint spots.......
