Professional Paint Removal

  • Green, chemical-free methods
  • Surface Prep
  • Rigourous Cleanup – Leave no trace
It all starts with safe and effective paint removal. Though often referred to as paint stripping or paint scraping, our approach — developed and refined over years of experience since 1996 — encompasses the best and most current techniques in the business. These include green, chemical-free methods, and a rigorous prep and cleanup protocol that leaves no trace behind — no paint chips, no mess — each and every day.

Preparing the wood surfaces is of primary importance as it ensures that your home keeps its new paint job as long as possible. Surfaces left untreated can cause your paint to fail and flake and leave your home with a less than pristine finish. We’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen!
