Need to paint over red tile brick exterior. THe exterior is currently painted green and is peeling towards the bottom of the house. Do I start by pressure spraying or sandblasting? Is there a sealer I need to put on first? I am in desperate need for help.

If the paint is peeling just a little ways up on the bottom that is caused by moisture wicking up from were the tiles are below ground level and there is not alot you can do about that.

I would not use a sand blaster unless you want to remove all the paint. The house should be washed to remove dirt and mildew and the loose paint can be removed with the power washer as well. You will need to do some hand scraping as well as after a day or so some of the paint around the peeling areas will lossen and curl up. Check to see if you have an acrylic paint by putting some GOOF OFF on a rag and if it softens the paint you have acylic on your house which most likely you do. If you have acylic then you will need to prime with an acrylic exterior primer and finish with the acrylic topcoat of you choice. Your local paint store will be able help you out as well in getting the right products for their system.
