Professional Dip & Strip Service: Glasgow, Edinburgh & Ayrshire

Dipping & stripping is a common name for the process through which we remove old paint & varnish from wood & metal.

We provide this service throughout Glasgow, Paisley, Edinburgh & Ayrshire – all the way from Dunoon to East Lothian!

Please check out our reviews.

Remove old paint & varnish

Dip & strip is the most effective way of removing paint & varnish from wood & metal (often as preparation for re-painting).


What can you dip & strip, in order to remove the paint & varnish?

Our dip & strip service is most commonly used to remove paint from wooden doors. We simply collect the doors (at a time to suit you, inc. evenings & weekends), remove the paint or varnish & then re-hang them.

Due to the size of our tanks, we can also dip & strip larger items, such as:

  • storm doors
  • wooden window shutters
  • furniture
  • large cabinets
  • radiators
  • cast iron benches
  • sash & case / wooden window frames
  • skirting boards, architraves & wooden mouldings
  • wooden banisters & handrails

5 stars - Strip Kwik Review - Garden Benches
We used this company to strip our two wrought iron garden benches. They had years and years of paint and were in a bit of a state. They were collected and returned a few days later looking great and ready for a new spray. Delighted with the service. Highly recommend.

More about our dipping and stripping service.

In simple terms, we submerge wood & metal items in a large tank containing a caustic soda. The caustic then dissolves varnish & paint, and strips the item back to its original finish.

The end-result is often pretty amazing, especially with wood. Old doors, for example, can look fantastic after several coats of paint have been removed to reveal the original colour & grain of the wood.

When it comes to metal, the results are less interesting, but it makes re-painting a whole lot easier (and takes a lot less time).

We cover all of Ayrshire, Edinburgh & Glasgow (including Dunbartonshire, Lanarkshire & Inverclyde), and are unlikely to be beaten on price or, more importantly, quality,

Commercial Dipping & Stripping Service

Until we’re told otherwise, we believe we have one of the largest dip and strip tanks in central Scotland.

The tank is 12ft x 6ft, and allows us to handle unusually large items, such as the massive sash & case windows from an old Edinburgh school, which needed stripping – see recent projects for more info.

Due to the fact of having two dipping tanks, we’re also capable of handling higher volumes than some of the other dip and strip companies found in Glasgow, Edinburgh & Ayrshire.

To see how we could help with your commercial project, just drop us a quick email, or give us a ring.
