Two years ago painters power washed our cedar shakes in October and then painted them. Now the paint is splitting and cracking off in chunks right down to the original shake. This means that not only is the new paint coming off, but the old paint as well. If just seems to be lifting off the cedar shakes from the inside out. Three questions: (1) does anyone have any idea why this is happening? (2) we now have to strip all the paint off the cedar shakes to remove the old paint and then repaint the shakes. Any suggestions what method, system to use to remove all the old paint down to the original shakes? (3) what do we do to ensure this does not happen again? Note: The new paint job was done by professional painters. Thanks
