Stripped back to their natural beauty, we also offer a full finishing service for the perfect look…

Old doors, furniture and fireplaces are stripped in a caustic solution. The residue is then removed by pressure washing. The items are left to dry slowly and naturally to avoid shrinking, then placed into a dehumidified storage area until the drying process is complete.

Next, any repairs can be undertaken. Holes or damaged areas are replaced with matching wood and the piece is then sanded ready to receive the finish which is either wax or lacquer as preferred.

All of the items stripped at are fully neutralised.

Doors & furniture – we offer a full finishing service. We also offer a same day service for external doors.

Please view our prices or contact us with any questions.

Hardwood & items painted with Hardwood furniture stripped also. Dark Oak furniture stripped by hand to give it a new lease of life creating a light modern look.

Fireplaces & Fire surrounds - We offer a full finishing service i.e. black leading.  Spare parts supplied include bars, back mantles, new tiles fitted.


  • All door furniture - i.e. handles, hooks, locks etc. - must be removed previous to stripping. All doors provided to us with furniture still on will be charged at £5 per door.
  • Doors with glass panels can be stripped but there is a 50/50 chance of the glass cracking.
  • Modern varnished and painted doors can be stripped at extra cost. Please call us for a cost for stripping by hand. Please note that when gloss paint is removed sometimes white emulsion or primers are left underneath.
