Woodwork Strip and Dip


We offer a caustic-dip stripping service for doors and pine furniture and chemical-gel stripping services.

Paint and varnish are great tools for sprucing up an old door or piece of wooden furniture. But a lick of paint won’t last forever.

Time takes its toll, and it isn’t kind to paintwork and varnish which can peel and break down.  

So if you’re looking to remove the old, peeling paint from your doors, you’ve come to the right place. Elite Decorating offers a great woodwork strip and dip service.

In fact, we have two techniques for stripping paints and varnishes.

1. Hot caustic dip. This is our most common method, which is primarily used for stripping household doors and pine furniture and fittings.

2. Chemical gel stripping. This is procedure is usually used prior to re-lacquering on hardwood furniture and delicate antique furniture.

Our woodwork strip and dip services include re-waxing and polishing your items after we’ve stripped them, so you can be sure of a high-quality, professional finish.
