I’m gutting a room (the house is nearly 200 years old) . The floor is 7″ wide pine and is painted brown. Ugly. The gaps are 1/4 to 3/8 inches wide and filled with some kind of hard putty. So I stripped a small portion of the brown floor enamel off to find a white paint which is not effected by the strpper at all. I assume it is a milk paint. Does anybody know how to remove this chemically or should I just rent a drum sander and grind away. Also, I’m not sure how to handle the gaps between boards, which are clogged with calk,paint and dirt. If I fill them, I’ll need something flexible which will hold a finish.
thanks, jim l
Properly install PVC trim products during cold weather to prevent expansion, contraction, and bowing issues. Warm up the trim before installation for better results.
