Also, there is this huge grey sheathed cable that runs from where the electric wire comes to the house at the roof peak in front, is connected just under the roof line to the side, then runs down the wall to the meter. Can I paint over it? Should the power be off to the house before I paint it? There's some peeling paint behind it and I'm nervous about using something to remove the peeling paint around those huge electric wires.
I'm going to cross-post this in the electrical section.
