Over the winter my steel siding started to peel in sheets of at least 1 foot to 4 foot long depending on how far I pull it, it is in only a section altogether about 12 foot long and only about 8 sheets wide each sheet being 4 inches wide. I need to get it all off so I can put a coat of primer then paint on it. I have tried power washer, soft brush and a steel wire brush it will take a long time the way I am doing it any Ideas?

Not a siding expert, but have done much painting.

Either you remove all the paint in the way you're doing it, or take a chance by feathering the paint out smooth with something course enough to do that, but mild enough not to scatch and pit the metal.

By the way, it sounds to me like something "went wrong" at the factory when they painted/coated that stuff.

I was talking to my Insurance man today and he said no proplem they will cover it only on the back side so I think I will have professional painters come in and do it right. Thanks for the reply
