Temperature and humidity can have a devastating effect on the doors on your home. When the weather changes, your door can expand and contract, causing additional wear on the door and frame. Door swelling in particular can create issues and costly problems. So how do you keep your doors looking great after every season?
The finish on your door is an important factor in how it will handle the most severe weather fluctuations. JC Wood carries a wide selection of weather protection finishes for your exterior doors. If you choose to paint an exterior door, make sure the paint you choose is rated for the outdoors. For interior doors, any sealing paint or finish will be fine, but keep in mind that the best way to avoid swelling is to seal your door to prevent moisture from building up in the first place.
Conduct a full inspection of your doors once a year to ensure they are properly protected. Look for cracks in the paint or stain, or any swelling or cracking in the door itself. If an area of your door appears to be weathered, sand the problem area. If there is structural damage to your door, consider replacing it or having a professional repair it.
After you have inspected the door and made any required repairs, determine if the harsh weather has impacted the look and appeal of your door. JC Wood offers a range of solutions to have your door looking great again. Whether you are refinishing after minor repairs, or staining a replacement door, JC Wood has the right tools for the job.
