When preparing to paint the exterior, there are some shingles that appear to show cracks but the paint seems to be firm. Should I still scrape it off?


If you run a scraper across it and it doesn't come off then it is likely OK to leave it. You should still sand it well and prime before painting.

For aesthetics I would probably sand it smooth, it will be visible under the new paint.
