The front door to your home leaves a lasting impression to your visitors. Whether they’re friends, family or strangers, nearly everyone enters your home through the front door. Exterior doors take a beating thanks to the weather (sun, wind, rain, snow all take heavy tolls on your door) and often, years of neglect. Many people choose to replace their front door once it becomes evident that it no longer looks as good as it once did. An alternative to replacing a front door is to repaint it or refinish it. Fresh color will protect your door for years, whether it’s wood or metal.
REFINISHING WOOD DOORS
Just like most wood products, wood doors can be sanded and refinished. You can choose to apply a stain to your door to get just the right shade to make your entrance look perfect. Many people spend thousands of dollars to refinish their wood floors, why not spend money refinishing your door? People refinish floors because it’s cheaper than replacing them and they tend to look brand new again. The same goes for your door. Quality wood products will take a stain beautifully, saving big money in the process!
REPAINTING DOORS OF ALL MATERIALS
If your door is metal, consider repainting the door versus replacing it. You can also repaint wood doors if natural wood look isn’t your thing! Thanks to color matching technology, you can literally have a front door to match any color imaginable.
Both refinishing and repainting front doors are jobs that weekenders who love to DIY can handle in some cases. However, as with any project that takes aesthetics into account, it is often best left to the professionals to ensure you have the finished look you’re aiming for.
