Q imported from our old site, Face Lift Floors: We recently purchased a cottage that we are renovating. The kitchen has pine flooring that was painted. Our plan was to remove the paint and bring the natural pine back, however, only the first coat of paint is removable with a chemical stripper.
We have been told that it is possible that epoxy paint was used underneath. What can be used to remove epoxy paint from wood?
A: Have a professional flooring contractor sand it off with his industrial strength, professional sanding equipment. This is not a job a homeowner should attempt with a rental machine.
