In need of a paint stripper or where to get started.

hunterosxNovember 27, 2010

I'm looking for a paint stripper in the Denver area. I have a 1922 home & a lot of the woodwork is painted over. They didn't paint the front interior or the built it, but the back of the house is all painted oak. I'm looking for someone to remove the paint. Any suggestions on how to get started would be appreciated!

You might have a problem. Stripping is messy work and likely spend as much time protecting and cleaning up as stripping. Also because of the age, you might (probably) need lead abatement. With all that work, it may be cost effective to remove and replace, unless it is really intricate stuff.

It's too bad. I see a lot of that era home in one part of town here and some of it is exquisite.
