    Had a poor workman drip paint on shingles. It has dried and wanted to know if there is any way to take it off. I have tried Easy Off Oven cleaner and it is not working. Would paint thinner or turpentine work without damaging the shingles? Thanks for your help.

    What kind of paint? alkyd? latex? acrylic?

    What kind of shingles? wood? asphalt? slate?

    Oven cleaner attacks organic fats and oils...there's none of those in paint any more.

    Anything that softens oil or alkyd paint will soften asphalt shingles.

    "Goof Off" or "Oops" will soften latex if you monitor it carefully.

    Acrylic is forever (although heat will soften both it and the shingles).

    Well Mr. Tron,

    I did do a search for shingles and paint. Do you have any other suggestions because I did not find any answers?

    Ok got a fix first need to know what color the shingles are then what color the paint is after that then I can look up some color codes and see what paint color would cover it to make it look like the Shingles again.

    So the solution is fix paint with paint.

    Get a 5-gallon bucket of liquid Rain Patch and cover those nasty paint spatters up!

    You could replace the shingles if the new ones won't stand out too much.
    Otherwise, spray painting the shingles is about the only thing that
    works. Be careful not to buy a glossy spray paint since the shingles
    probably are going to appear "flat", i.e., no gloss. You could go to a
    roofing supply and purchase a can of Elk spray paint for roofing jacks
    and flashing. It isn't glossy and it is the same color as the Elk
    shingles--most of their colors also match the other shingle
    manufacturers' colors.

    I have to do it every three or four years though.
