Worth Saving?


1911 bead board. Paint removal is hard. The back side has a single bead and bad boards. I hate to cover it but......

It's one room. I have some stored. I've removed a Lot from the house (stored). I even gave a lot away. It was going bad. I really wanted it in this room, but I'm removing/covering. I may clean it up & reinstall.

Thanks. In my neighborhood most of the historic houses are being bough by contractor flippers and gutted. The only restrictions are on the outside. I hate seeing 50' dumpster rolling through.

Sometimes old is just old. Not worth it to me.

Bead board is about the hardest thing there is to strip.

Thanks warner. I will not argue. What I've done so far, it's definitely the hardest in this house. I was hoping to find an easier way. Ever tried peel away or a lye mix?

A little perspective. To our European friends, that isn't even somewhat old yet.

Some wood, trim is worth saving. I know someone that threw away antquie pickets, then found out they are around $20,$ 25 each. I don't want to make that kind of mistake.

Re: Worth Saving?


IS this in your house or a customers? If a customers and they are paying you, keep on. If it is your own house, if you have the time, keep on if you like the stuff. For me, I would give up if had lead in it, rotted, or if I needed to move on and get it done soon. It does look nice, though.

Thanks. It's mine, I'm restoring it back to original, well as close as possible. Your right I just don't have time, so I'm covering with luan and picture frame for now. Later I may strip or duplicate bead, if I can't find new. Restoration has to be the slowest work ever. Ha.

Re: Worth Saving?


Do you think you could make a sanding block out of a festool Ls 130 that could speed things up?

Anything like the beadboard that is getting taken out and reinstalled should just go offsite for commercial stripping - hot tank or solvent. Way faster than other ways.

Re: Worth Saving?


I tried Peel Away stripper on a small project. It worked but it was such a mess I should have just used a chemical stripper.
SW sell another type, Smart Strip I think it may be called, white container with green label, I was pleased with it.
