Wood Front Doors need your "Love" also !

Are your front doors and/or door showing drastic signs of being highly weathered and the topcoat/finish is cracking, peeling or has completely deteriorated?  If your answer is YES - then it is best to "refinish" the wood sooner rather than later. Do this before any further damage is done by the exterior elements such as the sun, rain and humidity.

Furthermore, the unprotected wood (with no topcoat) can further be damaged to the point where the wood will start to split or crack... remember front door replacement costs are expensive. The odds are in your favor in avoiding the replacement of any doors if you inspect them about once or twice a year to determine if it is time to apply another topcoat or if it is time to refinish the doors completely.

As you know, front doors are also an element of "Curb Appeal" so it is best to have the doors redone every 2-3 years to keep them looking great. Life tends to have its "ebb-and-flows"...and with that said, you never know when you might have to put your house up-for-sale. So keep those front doors looking sharp/beautiful !

Even the best of finishes/topcoats will eventually lose the battle against the "wearing away" that is done by nature - this via the sun, rain, winds and/or humidity.
