Textured paint removal, how do you do it?
STRUCTURE PAINT REMOVAL SUPPLIES
Sweep and look
Bucket of water
Alabastine wall smooth
Make a foil wall around the wall
Get a sander
Use a coarse grain: 40
Sand through so that the structure is gone
Make everything dust-free
Remove the foil wall
Put a stucco runner on the floor
Clean the wall with a damp cloth
Apply alabastine wall smooth with a trowel.
STRUCTURAL PAINT REMOVAL AND ADHESION
Removing textured paint depends on the adhesion and how coarse the texture is.
If you have a really coarse structure, there is only 1 possibility to make it smooth.
You can do it yourself or ask a plasterer to do it.
You can try to cut it off with a putty knife, but this will take a lot of time.
Some people have used a steam device to remove textured paint, which also takes a long time.
TAKE AWAY EXPERIENCES STRUCTURE
Try with a paint burner on position 4, this is actually doable, but also a time-consuming experience.
A second solution is that you take a decent rough paving stone and you go over the structure.
When it is fine structure, this goes very well.
A lot of dust will then be released, but you can collect it by making a kind of foil wall, so that the dust does not reach other rooms.
A third option is to sand the structure with a sander with a dust bag.
Use grit 40 or 60.
When you’re done you’ll still need to smooth it out slightly to get a perfectly smooth wall.
Then you can smooth the wall with alabastine wall smooth.
This is a do it yourself kit including a roller and trowel.
You smooth the wall with the roller and then smooth it with a trowel.
