Paint and Muticoat removal methods.

renovxptFebruary 5, 2011

We are running into a lot more jobs where plaster and patios were painted prior to selling the house. The cost of sanblasting pushes the decision to chip-outs. What kind of methods are you guys using for this demolition other than the good old chippin hammer?

Thanks

I have a hydroblaster service that makes short work of it. It's basically a huge, adjustable power washer, 10 to 30K PSI. Takes multiple layers right off.

Theres no hydroblaster service within a 150 miles that I can find although my plaster guy says hes seen one on the highway that he thought was from Charleston SC. One guy recomended attaching a soda blaster kit to our pressure washer? Said it would take off the paint and wasn't as messy as sandblasting. I can get sandblasting for about $2 sqft when you figure in the sand and waste removal. I can chip it for about $3.5 per.

Any suggestions are welcome. Seems like there should be a better way. It looks like a Hydoblaster could cost upwards of 100k.

Reno,
Amazing how different prices are around the country.
We pay .80 per sq to chip out plaster. I guess that is because it is common place to chip every job out.

Thanks Racket, that was good info. Looks like I need to make a capital investment.

just-a-pb, those are in-house prices and its usually more than one layer of plaster. We can sub out a 3 inch undercut,acid wash, nuetralize and bondcoat labor only for .90. At .80 for a complete chip-out it would be a no-brainer.
