WILLCO recently started work on two homes, one in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of NE Portland and one further north. Both of these older homes had the existing paint stripped prior to prepping and painting.
It is recommended that every 100 years or so, homeowners should have the paint professionally stripped from their homes. Not doing so can cause eventual paint failure and peeling and if your home contains lead-based paint this could be a hazard to your family and surroundings. WILLCO is certified by the EPA and the state of Oregon to prep and paint lead-based paint.
