A telltale sign of an old home in Chicagoland is cracked, peeling, and chipped paint. Some old houses have as many as 5-7 coats of exterior paint, which results in siding that can no longer hold a fresh layer. The end result is a job that will continually chip and crack in various areas. The remedy for this is to hire a contractor who specializes in exterior painting in Chicago to do a complete paint removal.
Fortune Restoration has been in the painting business for over 35 years, which means we’re familiar with paint removal projects of all sizes, including lead paint removal in Chicago.
Paint removal done right means that after the job is done and a new coat of paint is applied, your house will look brand new, and the results will last for years to come.
Exterior Paint Removal in Chicago and the Surrounding Areas
There are various ways to effectively remove paint from the exterior of a building. Each method is specific to the home’s history. For example, older homes constructed before 1978 require special care and diligence due to the risk of lead in the paint. Not every professional paint company is familiar with this type of paint removal, but the team at Fortune Restoration has extensive experience in safely removing toxic paint from Chicago residences.
The steps we take to properly remove lead paint without leaving behind hazardous residue, paint chips, or debris, are intensive and meticulous. Our painting contractors utilize safety suits and masks to carefully remove the old paint and dispose of it properly, ensuring that your property is no longer contaminated by the time the job is complete.
Performing lead paint removal is dangerous without proper training and equipment. Our professionals know how to protect themselves against lead exposure, preventing the inhalation of lead dust, and otherwise coming into contact with lead based paint.
Newer homes built after 1978 with chipping paint can simply be scraped down, power washed, or a chemical peel can be used. In each situation, Fortune Restoration will work with you to choose the best paint removal method available.
