A customer asked me about stripping a 50 year old redwood tongue and groove exterior porch ceiling. It looks like old dried out varnish and there is stain underneath, which will also have to be sanded to restore to original color. My question is what is the best method and the best stripper to use. The ceiling is appx. 5′ x 15′. How tedious should I expect the work to be and what is the best product to use with the least mess?
