I had five doors (relatively simple doors, five panel, no intricate engravings or details) that needed just about 100 years of paint stripped off. I removed all the hardware and started to strip one door myself and right away knew I needed help. The mess, the fumes, the time, did I mention mess, and I wasn't even through two layers of paint on one door. I did some research, found out the expected cost to have this done by professionals. I found Degamba kind of by luck and contacted them to have the work done. I liked that they've been in business for something like 50 years in the same Park Slope location. I felt these were Brooklyn guys at least as long as I have been a Brooklyn guy and I felt I could communicate easily with them. Their price was completely fair. For a reasonable fee they picked the doors up curbside/driveway and when finished, delivered them back to curbside/driveway.John, my contact person, was completely upfront with the costs, time to get the job done (about a week) and was on time with pick up and delivery. Professionally these guys were A+. I find it difficult to find people/companies that can communicate these days.I wasn't sure exactly what to expect since I'm a very experienced DIY guy and never paid to have doors or any wood stripped before. I love the doors. Without a doubt they did a better job than I could have and that's the whole point of paying professionals in my opinion. Maybe I could have done it, but honestly it would have taken me many months working an hour at a time. Time is money, What is your time worth? I wouldn't have the space for the ongoing project/mess. My only regret is that I waited so long to have this work done.If you live in a small space (no work area), have kids or pets (fumes), not really a DIY person (building IKEA furniture in not DIY, corrosive chemicals are usually involved in paint stripping, real danger involved), have a full time job? Save yourself the trouble and call Degamba. More...
