Hello to all.

I found out about this forum yesterday, and thought I would stop by to check it out.

It appears there is lots of activity here, so I will start to read some of the posts to see if my twenty-plus years of hands-on building and remodeling experience will be an asset to the community.

My guess is there are quite a few people here who have hit the wrong nail a time or two!

Hi Tim! I'm a newbie too....maybe you are the one that can be of help to me.....I want to strip old paint off of a brick fireplace.....Is that possible? I may just have to repaint it-but I'd sure like to get the natural effect back. Any suggestions?

Also, welcome aboard! This has been an adventure for me, already! :)

Cindy,

You can use paint strippers quite effectively for this job. I have two or three columns at my website that describe the different types of strippers. Some are mild and some can strip 20 to 30 layers of paint at once.
