    Default HELP - graffiti from unpainted timber paling fence

    Hi,

    Some bugger has sprayed his stuff on my side fence (on a corner so the world can see). We are selling and so want to get rid of it.

    I'm tossing up between painting the hole 30 metre fence (on the outside only) or attempting to remove it with a kennards high water pressure gun. I've tried a grinder wheel I found at bunning but it just smudges it around and make a pretty obvious mark on the timber.

    Any experience or advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers.

    If it is waterbased a pressure blaster may get it off, or you could try 40 grit paper in a belt sander and see if that gets it off.

    Have you thought of simply applying paint stripper and then hosing down, if it is on raw timber it should work but may need more than one coat of stripper. Would be cheaper than hire of equipment.

    If it only covers a few boards it might be cheaper and easier to repace a few palings, or take them of and hit it with a belt sander.

    Try your local council. I know mine has a free removal service or they may advise of best product.

    Are you able to turn them over or replace with some others from another part of the fence so
    there is no colour difference.
