Staining and Exterior Painting in Highwood Windows and Doors
Wood windows and doors often need some TLC. These items are constantly on the move and usually will require refinishing before the siding. Window and door construction can consist of wood, exterior grade MDF, steel or fiberglass. All of these materials can be painted. Wood and fiberglass can also be stained.
Exterior painting in Highwood windows are very common project while most steel or steel clad windows are prefinished. These to can be painted if the factory finish has faded or a different color is desired, but I recommend staying with the factory finish whenever possible.
Many homeowners are installing new doors manufactured out of steel and fiberglass. These modern materials last a lifetime and can be stained or painted. Painting a steel door or painting a fiberglass door is a straight forward project with several application methods.
Staining and finishing an embossed fiberglass door can be a bit tricky. A few tricks will help, but patients will be the most important skill you can have. Staining and finishing exterior wood doors is much easier.
These are all good projects for the weekend warrior requiring just a little time and effort.
