To be able to use the Defy, you will need to remove the paint fully and that will not be easy. Paint does not come off with a stripper so it will need to be sanded or possibly corn cob blasted. Once removed you can use the Defy. It typically will last 4-6 years on siding, possibly longer but depends on the UV exposure.
