NEW DOOR FINISHING

Protect your door with a beautiful finish...
Our eight-step finishing procedure produces a door with a beautiful, protective finish that ensures long life and distinguished beauty. Our experienced craftsmen apply only the highest quality alkyd resin-based stains and marine-grade spar varnish top coats with ultraviolet inhibitors. Then they detail hand sand each door after each step. This ambitious finishing system assures beauty and long-lasting protection.

The hardwoods used in the manufacture of doors all vary slightly in color and grain pattern. These differences are inherent in hardwoods, and should not be considered defects. If you are ordering pre-finished doors for a double door installation, or for a door and sidelight installation, please advise us of such installation at the time that you order. We will attempt to color match the finish of the different millwork items as closely as possible.

8 Steps to A Beautiful Finish

STEP 1
Inspecting and Hand Sanding of the door . . .
Every door, transom, sidelight and entryway component part is closely inspected prior to the finishing process to ensure quality. Then each part of the door - stiles, rails, panels, and mouldings - is hand sanded to ensure a perfect base upon which to begin the finish process.
STEP 2
Staining the door with resin oil base minwax stain . . .
Only the best quality alkyd resin-based stains are used in the finishing process. The pigments used in the stain are resistant to fading and bleeding. Each stain remains on the door for the optimal period of time, to ensure that the color penetrates deeply into the wood. This guarantees lasting beauty. When staining and finishing an entryway which includes multiple doors / sidelights / transoms / and jambs, all items are stained at the same time to ensure a close color match between the different components.
STEP 3
First Coat of UV resistant polyurethane liquid plasic . . .
After staining and drying, the door is inspected again for evenness and uniformity of color. Then the door is lightly hand sanded prior to the application of the first Top Coat layer. We use only the best quality marine grade spar varnish, complete with Ultra Violet Inhibitors, which ensures that the finish will last as long as possible. A low-pressure high-volume application process is used when applying the finishing coats.
STEP 4
Hand Sanding of Door . . .
After the first Top Coat layer dries, the door is again inspected. Then another detailed hand sanding of all door surfaces with 220 grit sandpaper and #0000 Steel wool.
STEP 5
Second Coat of Marine Grade Spar Varnish . . .
A second coat of marine grade spar varnish is applied, further enhancing the appearance of depth and beauty of the door.
STEP 6 & 7
Hand Sanding of door . . . Third coat of finish
The more we sand, the more beautiful the final appearance of the door. This meticulous final sanding step assures the elegance and beauty of the final product.
STEP 8
Fourth and Final Coat of UV resistant polyurethane liquid plasic finish . . .
A heavy final coat is applied to the door, which provides the extra layer of protection against the sun and the elements.
STEP 9
Inspection and Packaging . . .
After a final inspection, the door is sealed in a thick 6 mil poly bag, to ensure safe transporting to your home.
