Wooden Window Now Offers Steam Stripping

April 20, 2012

 

Wooden Window is pleased to announce that we now offer window and door stripping with The Steam Stripper. Steam stripping offers several important advantages over traditional chemical stripping.

Steam stripping eliminates exposure to the toxic materials released by sanding and scraping.

Everyone restoring windows with the Steam Stripper breathes easier and works safer. Nearly all painted sashes from pre-1970 buildings are coated with paint that contains lead. Heat and mechanical methods of paint removal such as sanding and scraping release lead dust and fumes which can cause serious health problems for workers and building occupants. The Steam Stripper’s wet process controls this lead hazard.and door stripping with The Steam Stripper. Steam stripping offers several important advantages over traditional chemical stripping.

Steam stripping uses no toxic chemicals. The Steam Stripper eliminates the need for toxic chemical strippers, so workers are not subjected to their harmful effects. The workplace and environment are not contaminated with hazardous chemicals.

Stripping with steam is gentler. It reduces glass breakage and other physical window damage from scraping, sanding and corrosive chemicals.

Restoring existing windows and doors, particularly in historically significant buildings, is the best way to ensure optimum window performance while carefully maintaining the tradition and character of an historical structure. Since 1980, Wooden Window has been restoring and constructing fine wooden doors and windows for residences and commercial buildings throughout California.

Wooden Window has restored and installed doors and windows in buildings designed by such notable architects as Julia Morgan, Bernard Maybeck, Lewis Parsons Hobart, John Hudson Thomas and Willis Polk.

Today Wooden Window is recognized throughout California as THE source for wooden doors and windows when quality counts.
