Former owner spray painted the vinyl siding of my home, peeling off

I was power washing my vinyl siding, and the nozzle clogged producing a jet stream which peeled off white paint on my white siding. I didn't know it had been painted, though now I notice the overspray on the screens, light, etc. So, I now have streaks of shiny white siding thanks to the power washing incident, and would like to remove all the paint that was sprayed on the siding. Don't know if it is all overspray from painting the gutters/soffit or what. Don't know why it was painted.

Any ideas are most welcome, it is the entire front of my house, and the streaks are quite noticeable.

Thank you in advance

Cathy

I'd be cleaning it up, feathering in any spots where it peeled and repaint the whole wall long before I'd try and strip all the paint off.

Yep... once it's painted it will always need to be painted.

Unfortunately, that is what I was thinking also. sigh, I am thinking brush painting rather than spray, takes longer, but better control and no overspray.

Thanks

Yep, you both confirmed what I was thinking. Sigh. Could complain, but easier to just get to it. Thanks!

I use a narrow roller, followed with a 2" sash brush to do the underside and any touch ups needed as you move along.
Need to both at the same time so there's no runs.

Good idea, I was planning a 4" brush, but you are correct about the underside & touch ups. That would be tricky. And the small roller would go quicker. Thanks!
