We have a biggish garage built approx. 1990, with two sliding wooden doors, both about the same size of an approx. size of a standard UK garage door. The issue is that they need painting again but, with all the previous coats of paint beginning to flake, I do not want to just paint again over the old paint. From what I have seen, there are two options open, one being using paint stripper; however, we have dogs, cats, chickens and ducks that all hang around the doors. The other is a blow torch, and I am a little bit worried of setting the doors alight. Does anyone have any other ideas and advice they can give me. Also we are a little concerned that removing the paint may result in the doors not staying in one piece, but that is only a very small concern. Thank you.
