I want to strip the paint of two doors. There is probably about 5-6 layers of paint on them and I guess there might be some lead paint somewhere as they look like the old originals (in an ex 1940's council house). As they are not standard size and are actually nice and robust I want to renovate/restore rather than buy new ones. I'm in the process of getting my hands on some Klingstrip (which will still come in very handy for my staircase and the door-frames), but someone said it would be the easiest to have the doors dipped. I read that this can cause swelling, etc... Does anyone have any experiences with dipping doors and also can anyone recommend a place I can have this done (I'm D12) at and how much does this cost on average? Furthermore i was thinking that my front Iron gates could do with a revamp - I suppose these could be dipped as well?
