We just purchased an old home (1958) that has a painted brick fireplace in the main living area`s. I purchased from paint stripper for brick but it doesnt seem to be working well enough to continue on....it doesnt remove all the paint.
What other options should I look at....sandblasting or is there a method to be used with the paintstripper?
Thanks in advance
Brick is porous . so would have soaked up paint, so that is probably why. Also depends on what it was painted with. If the fireplace is that old it may have been painted to hide other issues with the brick? I have seen a couple of those.
I would suggest removing it and installing- Ledgestone perhaps, it is beautiful my clients love it.
If that is not possible , There is an organic stripper you paint on let sit & it works really well. When I had to refinished one of my Clients furniture pieces - I had layers of a bad paint jobs- below was the most beautiful mahogany. This took off all layers. In detail areas I used on old tooth brush & wiped off. Worked better than my toxic strippers
Not sure if you can list stores or brand name on this site, so you can email me & I will send name & where I got it.
