Over the years old doors tend to be painted over with many layers of paint hiding the natural wood underneath them. We use a unique cold dipping process that ensures minimal damage regardless of the age, condition, or style.
Bring Your Old Door Back To Life!
Another process we have a wealth of experience here at FHF is the restoration of traditional wooden panel doors. Over the years these old doors tend to be painted over with many layers of paint hiding the natural wood underneath them. We use a unique cold dipping process that ensures minimal damage regardless of the age, condition, or style of door (note ply doors cannot be dipped). This differs to other companies whose process uses a heated tank, the heat can cause a few adverse effects, the solution is far more aggressive when heated and more liable to damage the wood on the door.
The heat also has a tendency to warp the door, this can sometimes happen as the old glue used in the construction melts.
We Also Strip Other Furniture Too!
We can cater for most sizes of door stripping project; the process does not differ greatly between a single door or an entire building with doors.
The stripping process can be applied to other furniture items; we have also stripped a range of items in the past here, some examples – Fire Surrounds, Staircases, Banisters, Windows, Window Surrounds, Skirting Boards, Door Surrounds, Wooden Panelling, Steelwork, Painted Gates, Cast Bench Ends and many other items.
Feel free to enquire with us regarding an item or project you would like paint stripped from.
