I live in a 1950 house with cedar shingle siding. Previous owners have painted (and mispainted) the oldest part of the house to the point that the shingles need to be seriously scraped and sanded before I can repaint them. My question: What's wrong with my taking the old shingles down and flipping them to show their unpained sides? I'd then have a fresh surface to prime and paint. Thanks!
