    Paint Stripping – Paint Removal Specialists Auckland – Registered Master Painters

    The Auckland house painters are highly skilled experienced paint strippers. We use a combination of paint stripping methods tailored to the individual needs of each painting project.

    The house painters have invested in the latest technology of paint stripping equipment imported from America called the Paintshaver Pro. The Paintshaver Pro strips away multiple layers of paint at a time and collects it all into a vacuum system for easy and safe removal. The advantages of the using The Paintshaver Pro system are:

    • The Paintshaver Pro System uses no chemicals or heat.
    • The Paintshaver Pro can Safely Strip Lead Based Paint.
    • The Paintshaver Pro collects all dust and debris into a vacuum system for easy and safe disposable.
    • The Paintshaver Pro System gives a superior finish.
    • The Painshaver Pro System saves both time and money.

    Paint removal is a potentially hazardous undertaking – if it is done incorrectly, there can be long-lasting effects. The Auckland house painters take this area of the decorating process very seriously. We ensure that both our clients and staff are safe and protected at every stage of the process.

    The house painters have undertaken extensive research and training.  This means that we know and understand the risk and have identified and developed specialised systems to minimise them.

    But knowledge is only half the equation. As in any specialist field, specialised equipment is needed to do the work. This includes encapsulated stripping machines, stripping products and specific vacuum sanders designed to minimise dust. All this costs money, but people stripping paint without these tools are endangering not only themselves but also their clients and neighbours.

    What makes paint stripping dangerous?

    Inexperience! The danger with stripping paint lies in the type of paint that is being stripped. If it is lead based, then doing the stripping incorrectly can lead to lead poisoning.

    What is the history of lead-based paint?

    Many homes built before 1980 were painted with lead-based paint. Over time, more and more coats of paint have been applied over these original lead paints – sometimes as many as twenty coats!

    With the increasing weight of the paint, and because paint itself has a limited life, the original lead-based paint undercoat has given up holding onto your weatherboards. It starts to fall away, and lead-filled paint chips fall to the ground. These paint chips can leach lead into the soil and if picked up by children, or eaten by pets can cause lead poisoning.

    What is the best way to remove lead-based paint?

    Many techniques and specialised equipment are needed to remove lead-based paint safely. The house painters excel in this area. The house painters know and understand every aspect of the process, for safe removal for both you and our staff.

    If you are having any form of paint stripping done, make sure that the company is a Master Painter. Don’t put you and your family or staff at risk!

    Is all paint stripping dangerous?

    The paint on your house may need to be removed because of bad preparation on a previous job, or possible bubbling. This paint may not be lead based. The best way to evaluate this is by doing a lead test.

    This team was professional and responsive throughout the week of painting. The tall timber fence posed problems being right beside the footpath and a bus stop but the job was done beautifully, creating a good first impression of the property.. The back deck area was in a bad state of repair, and this was taken right back to the original wood weatherboards to prepare for painting. The old French doors were also in a bad way, and these were sanded , puttied, and brought back to their best. With a 100 year old place no detail was spared bringing this elevated deck area back to its former glory.

    From the first day of quote we had a 'gut feeling' that we had chosen the right company to paint our house. The time and effort put into the preparation was amazing. Workmanship was certainly Gold Medal standard. We were surprised how our 30 year old tired looking house was transformed into a house you can look at in awe. Thank you once again Angela, Chris and Tyson.

    I can’t rate Chris, Angela, Gary and Tyson highly enough. They are so professional, polite, accommodating and the quality of work is absolutely amazing – we were so impressed with their attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble and the result is stunning. We have renovated our house from top to bottom and used lots of different tradies over the last three years but The Painters really stood out to us. I can’t recommend them enough. We are so pleased with the end result – they have transformed a tired 70’s house into something that looks a bit more modern of which we are so grateful and appreciative.

    I have enjoyed working with the team from House Painters. They understood the requirements of my house paint and I refer this company as an excellent business and very professional team.



    The paint on your home has a life span. Over many decades coat after coat is applied and as every additional coat is added the original coating holding onto the weatherboards slowly “lets go” and fails. This can be seen in peeling, cracking paint and bubbling. While it may seem that a quick sand and another coat may sort the problem…it seldom does. Often when a section is failing it is an indication that the best option is to remove all the paint and start again. On this home the owners wanted to go for a darker colour. With the age of the home and the added stress that a dark colour brings to older weatherboards the best solution was paint stripping.


    The house painters use various methods to strip paint from weatherboards. With over 25 years experience we use both mechanical and liquid systems that are tailored to each individual project we undertake. Our main focus is on safety. The safety of our staff and clients. This includes the safe collection and disposal of any paint stripping waste in accordance with strict waste management systems. In the video we are using the Paintshaver Pro which is a vacuum based system that safety collects all the waste for easy disposal.

    With most of the failing paint removed the next step is to sand the entire surface. The house painters use industrial grade sanders connected to HEPA vacuums that contain any dust for safe disposal.

    Priming & Filling After Paint Removal


    With all the paint removed the next step is to prime the entire surface. This is one of the most important coats of paint as it will bind any additional coats to the surface for many years to come.  Following the priming all dents and dings created by paint tripping are filled, sanded and reprimed. This provides an exceptional base for the topcoats, and a finish that will last!
