Chipping *and* peeling paint--two different areas
The exterior frame (jamb?) around the front door of the little house we rent out has a chunk of paint that has chipped off. I can slip a thin putty knife under it and pop up more chipping paint.
One of the interior doors (a room addition) was painted slapdash and has peeling areas.
We think that in order to make the house look good to sell, they painted these areas with any paint they had left over from other projects. From what we can tell, the front door's frame has been painted with white, green, and white again--there may even be pink as the first coat. The interior door is another story with peeling, rather than chipping, paint.
After the stripping, I figure using a good Zissner or Kilz primer, then repaint appropriately.
What's a good product to use to strip off the peeling layer, and to strip off the chipping layer? I've read a lot about Soy Gel. Thanks for any input!
