Our Refinishing Process Beautifies Any Size Entry Door
Our Step-by-step Process
We carefully remove the door from hinges and replace it with a temporary non-operating door. The door is brought back to our shop and then existing hardware is removed. We then mask any glass and unaffected door edges
Your old finish is stripped away using a commercial stripper ad a good bit of elbow grease. After cleaning this away, we begin sanding the wood to remove the old stain. We hand detail all the moldings, edges, and corners. Any cracks and separations are filled. The stain is then applied. After the stain has dried the first coat of finish is brushed on.
The door is sanded with a medium grit sandpaper, wiped clean and the second coat of finish is applied.
The door is sanded with a fine grit sandpaper, wiped clean and the third coat of finish is applied.
After the final coat is dry, the door is detailed and readied for reinstallation.
Maintenance for refinished doors: Every 2 or 3 months, wipe the finish clean with a damp cloth and use Formby’s Almond Luster on the door following manufacturer’s instructions.
Additional coats of finish may be applied as frequently as every six to eighteen months.
