A: latex paint should be removed with soapy water and rubbing. avoid scrapping.
A: The typical choice would be pressure treated. That said, when choosing 2x4 or 2x6 material look for tight growth rings at the end of the board. Farmed lumber is grown fast and the result is weaker and less stable lumber. If the growth rings are a 1/4" or more apart the material will twist and bow outside. An alternate species is Fir. Fir is definitely more stable but is usually not treated for outdoor use. (Caveat- If you live in the West/NorthWest the majority of pressure-treated lumber is Fir. Because of the density of the material, it is pierced to accept the treatment.) There are products you can use that will sustain the wood outside and give protection from the elements. One brand is WoodLife. A spreadable liquid that is applied like paint. Good luck with your project!
A: Anne, Your question is open ended regarding the type of wood to use for Precision Balusters. Cedar is always my first choice followed by redwood but these 2 species can be expensive. Clear southern pine is excellent and less expensive. I hope this helped
