i am going to paint the outside of my house which is stucco. i pulled all the ivy down that was growing and now i have no idea how to get the ivy roots off. it takes for ever to scrape them and half the house if covered with them. a wire brush did not work. i tried a vibrating sander which got them to be smooth enough to paint, but will the paint adhere to them ok? i am going to try a hand belt sander later. will a power washer work? it doesnt seem like it would. ive heard that paint stripper would work but like i said its half the house.
I recently had a similar situation. I pressure washed the whole house. Which didn't quit get all of the vines off. So I painted what I could, Then came back about 2 weeks later and pressure washed the vines again. I think they dried out after the 2 weeks, and came right off that time.
that looks good. except you had only a few vines. the whole side of this house was coverd with them. they are everywhere. i did pull them off over a month ago though so maybe its a good time to try the pressure washer? how many psi was yours?
