Door Refinishing in Woodbury

Wood doors that face the sun are improperly cared for in large part.  My advice has always been to treat them like a wood boat.  One or two coats of Spar Varnish every other year (or sometimes every year will protect it.  If you wait too long the door will need to be fully re-finished.  In the event you don’t want to have the door fully stripped and sanded then sometimes (rarely) the door can be blended.  This will not achieve a perfect look but costs less than fully stripping the door.  Here is a door that we re-finished in Woodubry where we fully stripped all the raised panels and then sanded and applied a glaze to the interior routed edges.  Then we top coated with 4 coats of spar urethane.  It cost less than fully stripping it and probably less than a 1/4 of replacing it.  It looks great

Painting Exteriors with Deep Base Colors in Woodbury

Exterior paint will fade in the sun.  In order to keep it from fading quickly, you need to do the following:  Always remove any debris, chalking or efflorescence.  This can be done by detergent washing the house with the correct cleaner.  Always use the correct primer.  On concrete composite hard board, you need to use concrete specific primer.  Finally fully back roll/back-brush the top coat and use a satin sheen.  An experienced painter should be able to get the 2nd coat of paint to level out (even with higher sheens)

Here is a house we painted in the Lake Elmo Woodbury Area.
