Wood Stripping Services Based in Richmond, VA

Stripping Your Wood Surfaces Bare

Did you just buy the historical home of your dreams and realize the doors and trim are full of lead paint? Is that irreplaceable mantle peeling and full of grime? Or maybe your aunt left you a favorite old wood dresser, but it’s been painted or the finish is peeling. Stripping these surfaces back down to bare wood could offer you a new beginning, and we can help.

American Stripping Company of Richmond specializes in wood stripping that effectively removes any coating — whether it’s varnish or paint — from your wood surfaces to restore the original grain. This process may be applied to furniture, original and historic doors, wood molding or any wooden family heirloom.

Our Tried-and-True Stripping Process

American Stripping uses the flow-over, or cold flow method, for stripping wood. This involves brushing the surface with a stripping solution to break down any paint or finish, then cleaning it away to reveal the original surface. Unlike a hot-strip method, cold flow is safe to use on all types of wood with only minimal raising of the grain. Your solid wood surfaces will not be damaged from this process, and it is more cost-effective and eco-friendly to remove paint in this way.

Our technicians have decades of experience stripping paint and finishes from wood and have refined their techniques with the flow over method. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed, and every nook and cranny will be inspected and scoured to the best of their expert abilities.

While American Stripping Company of Richmond does not offer wood refinishing services, we have spent years cultivating partnerships and relationships with local companies that do. If you want your newly stripped project refinished, we’ll refer you to the best in the business to bring your pieces back to their original luster.
