Anyone know if a good place? We bought a load of old 1930s doors from eBay (yay), but they need stripping/dipping. Would love to do it myself (armed with my hot air gun), but lack of time, load of other jobs and of course the worry of lead paint puts me off (and DH really prefers they are sent out).

Having trouble finding anywhere local on google. And hoping for actual recommendations if possible.

Yes, they do look good. Think I mucked up in my original search blush

Good luck convincing your df!!!

We used A1, had dipping and neutralising done. The web site implies that they get all the paint off with scrapping if the dip doesn't get it, but they don't. Not a big deal, but not quite as stated.

Ended up wanting cash payment, and found the guy a bit odd. Happy enough with the results I guess, but I'd suggest looking around.

My neighbors stripped their doors with a heat gun and they got terrible results. There were scorch marks all over them...

Anyway that's when we decided to get our doors chemically stripped. We looked around and found Capital Door Stripping www.firstdoorstripping.co.uk . They dipped our doors and the results were excellent. We are very pleased with how the doors look now.
