Blackwood Paint Stripping
Paint Stripping Blackwood
The craftsmen in the Dipstrip team can undertake repairs on damaged doors, windows, and furniture for you. The proprietary paint stripping process we apply ensures that your fixtures are brought back to you better than new. After the paint has been stripped, we treat the wood, where wood is the material of the restoration project, with a natural oil layer, which causes the wood to glow with its richest colours. We have stripped paint, glue, lacquer, and other coverings from items ranging in size from the very small to three meter high doors and posts.
More recent doors won't have been made from a few solid pieces but rather combined from flakes and fragments of wood, unlike older doors. It's important to be careful when selecting a paint stripper, as joints can crack and tighten and the wood can twist. The paint stripping technique is one needing a careful eye and patience, as well as knowing when to start cleaning afterwards. An advantage older fixtures have is that they don't get the modern kiln drying, which can shorten the lifespan of the wood considerably, so it's usually a good idea to make the effort to restore them properly. There's no reason to risk your irreplaceable antique furniture, doors and window frames with anyone else.
You'd have to look for a long time to find anyone with the kind of experience and professionalism we bring to the table. With thirty years of experience in the business, your antique furniture or other project is in safe hands.
