Paint Removal Services Near Ashburn

Paint Stripping Companies In Your Area

Sometimes you can't just cover the old layer of paint. For example, if you have an older home, there's a risk that you have lead paint that needs to be removed. Or if you want to add new life to old furniture, the best way is to strip it down to the base material. But stripping the paint yourself can be hazardous, messy, and time-consuming. Find a local paint removal company who can help.

Professionals typically use one of three methods to remove old and cracked paint:

  • Grinding with power sanders or sandblasting
  • Using paint stripping chemicals
  • Applying heat with a heat plate or heat gun.

Each has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, grinding can release dust in the air which is particularly hazardous if lead paint is present. Chemicals can also be hazardous and while there are more environmentally-friendly options available, they tend to be less effective. Heat and chemicals can also present a fire risk.

When hiring a paint removal service, be sure to hire local. With a local pro, there are fewer delays on change orders or project expansions. Local companies also know where to dump toxic residue so you don't have to.

"Sam was wonderful to work with! He came out and gave me an estimate and then came out a second time to test the best way to remove the deck stain to ensure the estimate was accurate. He did a few tests to determine the best product for removing the stain before he had even received a commitment from me. He was very responsive and always got back to me quickly, especially by email and text. The crew he brought with him was professional and polite and they did great work. I would recommend Pro Painting Plus to friends and family and I will call Sam when I need more work done. "

"Mr. Jorge Alfaro is simply the best handyman I have ever had. I had major wood rot around my main door and a bay window. He told me exactly what was needed and how much it would cost, up front. He constantly talk to me while performing the job to keep me abreast of the situation. One are in the bay window was rotted severely and before he did the work, because we didn't discuss it originally, he called me over and showed me the rot on the window. He didn't just didn't assume approval he asked first. I liked that because he wasn't just spending my money he allowed me to approval the project. The job he did was better than outstanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Alfaro Carpentry for all your household carpentry jobs. "
