Default Paint Strippers

Just to let you know I tried the Removall 310. The can says that it will remove paint, that you have to apply it with an airless and it will cover 40-70 sq. ft. per gallon. DON'T YOU BELIVE IT!!! I spent $1400.00 to cover 1200 sq. ft. and that's 23 sq. ft. per gallon and had to use a zero degree tip to get this crap off the house. When you call the Rep for the product it's your fault you didn't it right. Now I been painting 30 years now and have been restoreing house for quite a few years. I am told this product will work but would you really like to see your profit go down the drain. Even the contractor that told me about this product has changed to my method. I would not use this product again even if they gave it to me.

There is a Dads Easy Spray stripper has a home and professional strength. The pro version is really caustic. We used it to strip cabinets one time. If you get it on you, there is no window for when the pain comes. It burns on contact. What is it you are trying to strip anyhow?

I used the silly spray bottle provided on the side with velco.
I shot once at the substrate and the atomized particulate death atoms flew into my open mouth (yes, I am a mouth breather) and into the throat.

eeep.

Every time I get around a "DAD" n00b I dab a teensie tiny dot on their forearm...

lol.

That spray bottle is a joke. It would probably melt anyway lol. I actually was applying the stripper with a cheap throw away brush. When I dipped it one time, the corner of the brush caught the lip on the bucket and shot it in my eye. I thought that was going to be a ER visit. I about lost my mind on that one.

I use Jasco premium paint & epoxy remover BIX. Every time I use other chit, it never works. So I stay with what works. Never striped siding. Has any one here striped something that big?

Stripped both the cedar sidings and solid sidings. Two different methods for both.

I use the large 4" chip brushes these days.
I bet you were sure freaked out when it was hanging out in your eye, I would have been screaming like a little girl!

We completely strip this house down to the bare wood. The job was contracter by the Father for the Son. We had done work for the Father earlier in the summer and he wanted the Son house done also. We use grinders with sanding discs palm sanders and a tool called the paint shaver to remove paint. This works well it really brings down the cost of striping a house and is fast but you have to use the sanding discs and not the paint eaters. You can see for yourself a www.albaiterpainting.com. The orig. was to sand down the bad areas to smooth out the bad areas of peeling paint primer and paint with Duration Paint. Son wanted house completely strip and Father says make him happy and I'll take care of you. Well as you can guess they don't want to pay for the job. After 7 years of working for myself and trying to build a quality painting company I think I've had enough. My little company does quality work whether exterior or interior and no one wants to pay for the work you do. How can you pay your emploies make insurance payments and pay your own bills when we get clients like this. So I sent a registered letter with final bill filed a lien on property and will file for bankrupcy. I think I have already found a job for a general contractor.
