Whether preparing your Dallas FT. Worth home for selling or just keeping it in optimal condition, the front door at some point requires attention. Wood entry doors take a beating from rain, sun, and wind causing the varnish or lacquer finish to wear and discolor. Many times moisture gets under the finish causing the finish to lift then the moisture damages the wood.
Premium paint stripper removes latex & oil-based paint and varnish from wood, metal and masonry. They also removes pigmented wood stains from wood, restoring the wood’s natural color.
Sanding, by hand or machine, usually using 80 to 100 grit paper.
Using oil based stain’s that provides long-lasting wood tone color that penetrates deep into the pores to seal and protect the wood.
Lacquer Sanding Sealer is formulated to work as a base coat. It seals (and therefore protects) the wood. It fills the pores and hardens the fine ends of the grain.
Marine varnishes are perfect for exterior wood doors. They have the highest level of UV protection, Commonly called a Spar/Marine varnish, it has been formulated and tested to work in all elements of weather and in all degrees of heat.
The most common way to categorize wood is under the general headings hardwoods and softwoods. Examples of hardwoods are oaks, mahogany, maples, cherry, walnut and Brazilian cherry. Examples of softwoods are pines, firs, and cedars. Hardwoods like oak, mahogany and South American walnut are excellent for exterior door applications. Oak generally is Pale yellow to mid brown in color with medium to fine wood grain texture, is very durable and extremely resistant. Mahogany is red to brown in color with fine wood grain texture, is very durable, very resistant and because of its fine texture is suitable for painting. South American Walnut is a wood that is naturally distressed, very dense, light to medium in color, very durable and has a unique textural quality. Mahogany and South American Walnut are becoming more and more popular as a choice over Oak. Brazilian Cherry also known as jatoba is extremely heavy, dense and durable. Called “Brazilian cherry” on the US market, jatoba is one of the key exports from the Brazilian Amazon.
