More about our wood stripping service

To begin with, we can collect wooden items for stripping anywhere from Ayrshire, Edinburgh & Glasgow (including Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire, Lanarkshire & Inverclyde) – click here for our service area map.

When it comes to wood stripping, we can handle pretty much anything that is made of solid wood. We have one of the biggest dip and strip tanks in central Scotland, that enables us to work with larger items and handle commercial restoration projects.

What wooden items can we strip?

  • Wooden furniture
  • Wooden doors
  • Floorboards
  • Wooden handrails & banisters
  • Skirting boards, architraves, wooden mouldings etc
  • Wooden panelling
  • Sash & case  / wooden window frames
  • Storm doors
  • Wooden window shutters

What wooden items can’t we strip?

We frequently have to turn down requests to strip furniture. While we can strip solid wooden furniture, things we cannot strip include:

  • Furniture with any kind of veneer
  • Chipboard
  • MDF
  • Pressed cardbard 

Recent project in West End, Glasgow

This was one of the most interesting jobs we’ve finished in 2020. A fantastic victorian kitchen unit was covered in old paint, and was in desperate need of some tlc. The unit had to be dismantled, stripped & then re-assembled…before being returned to a loveley tenement flat in the West End. We’re delighted with the end result.

    Old School Desk, Giffnock

    A lovely school desk was covered in layers of varnish. It would have taken ages to try & remove this through sanding. After a few hours in our tank, all the varnish has been removed and the metalwork is also ready for re-painting.

      Wooden Shutter Stripping, Edinburgh (Morningside)

      Wooden window shutters can be really tricky to strip properly. For starters, they’re normally quite large, which means they take a lot of time & effort. However, once the years of paint have been stripped, they look beautiful & have a great surface if you decide to re-paint. We’ll happily remove the window shutters for you, and re-fit them after stripping.

          Frequently Asked Questions

          How much does it cost?

          I’m afraid the only way to get an accurate price is to either give us a bell or send an email (and even then, we may have a few questions). We are very competitive, and we pride ourselves on the flexibility of our service…so just get in touch.

          How long does it take?

          This depends on the size of the job and also on the type an/or layers of paint of varnish that need to be stripped. We have two tanks, which allows us to work more quickly than a lot of other companies. If you get in touch, we can give an indication of the turnaround time.

          Will the wood have a perfect finish?

          This depends on the treatment that the wood has been subjected to. For example, if the wood was stained 20 years ago, there may be some residual marks left in the wood, which can only be removed by sanding down to a layer than the stain failed to reach.
