I would like to remove paint from an old outdoor porch prior to painting. The surface is wood and is around 50 years old. I have recieved various opinions on removing the paint correctly. scraping vs. power-washing. Will power-washing destroy or make holes in the wood or is that the correct way to remove paint properly form a wood surface, i.e. outdoor porch?
Thank you.

If the wood is not very hard, then power washing can do damage. You didn't say what kind of wood or what condition it is in.
