Yes. Strip paint from cedar siding is best when using the appropriate solution. For best results, use a stripper that is for your paint, such as an oil or water based. Another thought is to use something like mineral spirits. Use lightly.

The best thing to do is to grab a heat gun and a good scraper with good blades. The heat will free us the paint from the cedar.

Spray RemovAll over area you want stripped. Wait 12 hours. Scrape off the paint. Repeat steps 1-3 if necessary. Two layers of RemovAll may be required to remove paint completely.

First try pressure washing. If this does not remove the majority of paint, you can also try corn blasting or chemical stripping.

Since this is a porous wood, stripping is out of the question. If it is painted then you might change the color or stain if it is stained.
