    Default Repairing peeled paint on eaves soffit?

    Hi

    My eaves paint is that old that it has suffered peeling partly due to gutter overflow etc.

    The eaves soffit is fibre cement or CFC.

    Ok I can sand but how do you fix peeled paint so when its over painted to look flush as if new?

    Paint doesn't sand flush easy on the edges of the peeled paint?

    Clear as mud?

    First step is to address why water got into the eves in the first place otherwise you will be back at square one in no time..

    Next step is to remove as much of the peeling paint as possible make sure you have gotten it back to a firm edge.. (Wallpaper scrapper is best hear)
    Now wait till your board is dried out properly. (Heat gun may help if time is not on your side careful not to burn the remaining paint).

    And you are correct trying to feather out acrylic paint is nearly impossible so feather the edges of the paint out with topcoat and wait to dry.
    Now sand smooth and you are ready for painting with a premium exterior paint.

    Easy as that..

    GoodLuck..

    Hey Strom

    Im well aware of the cause. Its a combination of things that need addressing. I thought Id find out whether the peeled paint is fixable prior to ripping the damage gutter sections off and replacing the eaves sheet prior and start a new.

    Ok so the paint peel is hard to dither and there is no real solution for a nice flat finish as if new again?

    Thanks Strom

    No there is a solution as mentioned above..
    Remove as much of the peeling paint as possible as stated above.
    Leave board to dry out thoroughly before applying "topcoat" set this nice and wide and feather "it" out so you cant notice it..

    then pour yourself a

    your half way there..

    Paint as stated above with a premium quality exterior paint..

    All done !!!

    Cheers Strom

    The eaves soffit is dry. The primary cause is leaky and full gutters causing a back flow. That will be addressed prior to repainting

    topcoat?

    This is gyprock topcoat or a paint brand?

    Thanks

    Sorry champ..
    Should have been more specific..

    Gyprock topcoat or cornice cement..
    Just remember to use a sealer binder across your whole area so you get a uniform finish to apply your finish coats (2 coats) of paint to..
