Removing paint from stone veneer

Hi all,

I bought a home that had some paint run from the shutters to the stone veneer. It was vacant for a while so it's been on there for years as far as I know. Anyone know how to get this off? Thanks!

Welcome to the forums!

Denatured alcohol will dissolve dried latex paint, a stronger solvent would be needed for oil base. I'd suggest chipping/scraping off what you can first.

Do you know paint type?

Latex, goof-off is enamel reducer can be purchased in larger containers for a lot less.

Oil base, will need laquer thinner.

Both 'goof off' and 'oops' will work on latex paints and while you could buy a smaller container than the quart/gallon of denatured alcohol, same size containers - denatured alcohol is cheaper.
