Preparing your doors for stripping
1. Make sure your door can be stripped, if you are unsure please check our FAQ page or give us a call and we will be happy to advise you.
2.We would recommend removing any glass panels from your doors prior to removing from the door frame. Glass is not normally damaged but we cannot guarantee it as old glass can very weak and crack easily, another issue can be that the wood can expand in dipping process which can shatter the glass under pressure.
3. Remove your door from the doorframe carefully. It is best to have someone help you with this as solid wood doors can be very heavy. If the doors have been in place on hinges for many years you may need to use a wedged tool such as screw driver to prise it gently off hinges.
4. We recommend for you to remove the door hardware such as handles, latches hooks and hinges, this is not because they will become damaged in dipping process but purely because there will be paint underneath them that will need to be removed for a good finish.
5. Caulk is something used prior to painting to fill in any gaps on doors. It is often used around the beading. When doors are stripped the paint and varnish is removed but the caulk will remain and look like white chalk. If you don't want this it is best to scrape off caulk prior to dipping.
