PREPARATIONS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN BEFORE YOUR DOORS ARE COLLECTED:

  • Doors must be stripped of all handles and other door furniture.
  • Doors must be marked on the top and a corresponding mark made on the door frame. This helps you identify the correct door for your frames if we treat more than one door.
  • Work is usually completed within 7 to 10 days maximum, providing that there are no complications in the stripping process.
  • For a waxed finish our service takes approximately two to three weeks because we have to make sure the door is completely dry before we can sand, shellac and
    apply a finishing coat of wax.

Doors which have been painted with water based (acrylic) primer and paint cannot be stripped using our normal process. We need to use different chemicals and hand strip the door. In the event we find a door that has been painted in this way there will be a charge of £40 per door for stripping. If this cost is unacceptable your door(s) will be returned.
