Annacotty Paint Stripping
Paint Stripping Annacotty
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. The craftsmen in the Dipstrip team can undertake repairs on damaged doors, windows, and furniture for you. Our customers have included Sisk building contractors, the Merrion Hotel in Dublin, the Mater Hospital, and the very well known and reputed Trinity College in Dublin. 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.
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. Outdoor furniture especially can have a hard time with exposure to the elements and so good restoration is a must. 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. Normally, the antique wooden doors we treat are of superb quality wood. The paint stripping technique is one needing a careful eye and patience, as well as knowing when to start cleaning afterwards.
Whether you're a member of the public or someone working with an organisation, we've got what it takes to restore your beloved furniture and fittings. Our quality is undisputed and we work with you to build a successful partnership.
