What's the best way to restore a wooden conservatory where the paint is peeling off the exterior?

The best way to do this is to use a high quality paint stripper to remove the majority and a jet wash after should remove the remaining. If you notice any timber is rotten you will have to cut it out and replace it. When doing this make sure if it is a structural piece that it is fully supported by an accro or prop.

Hope this helps
Many Thanks

I would strip all wood using a strong acid based paint stripper like nitromors. Don't jet washing tho as this is very dangerous to you and environment as the acid based product could go everywhere use to the tins requirement and where all PPE (personal protective equipment) as required. just apply and scrape using a good strong scrapper
