Door Refinishing Process

The Process
What to expect:

Step 1. We start by arriving at your door ON TIME. Then we'll briefly discuss what color stain you want on your door. We have a large sample book for you to choose from.

Step 2. Next, we remove the hardware from the door and carefully remove the door form its hinges, placing the door on sawhorses.

Step 3. Immediately after removing the door from its hinges, we put a fitted drop cloth over the entry way to keep the air in your home and those unwanted guests outside!

Step 4. We'll begin to chemically strip the door down to bare wood.

Step 5. We sand the entire door down using a fine grit sand paper.

Step 6. We wipe down the door and make sure it's free of any dust, and then will prepare it for stain.

Step 7. We apply the stain of your choice to the door.

Step 8. We apply bottom weatherstripping.

Step 9. We apply two coats of spar-marine urethane. **Two coats is the the standard amount for each door, but depending on sun exposure you may want an armor coat which is two-to-four additional coats.

Step 10. We carefully hang the door back on its hinges.

Step 11. We put the hardware back on. Each door comes with a one year warranty. Other warranty options area available up to four years.
