Door Refinishing with Sikkens Stain Basking Ridge, NJ

Scope of Work:  Door staining

Timeline: 3 days (includes time for drying)

Location: Basking Ridge, NJ 07920

The owners of this Basking Ridge, NJ home called in our team at Monk’s to refinish their front door with Sikkens stain.  The front door, composed of a Mahogany core with Spanish Cedar on the outside, had been improperly finished when the door was originally installed.  In only three days our team at Monk’s was able to not only improve the look of the door with the Sikkens stain, but also to protect and treat the door.

Door Refinishing with Sikkens

Before Monk’s attended to this door it was showing a lot of wear and discoloration.  Painters applied a three coat Sikkens staining system to ensure a thorough treatment.  The first step of this project is to apply a chemical stripper known as a Zipstrip.  When performing any sort of painting or staining job our team always makes sure to protect your home with the thorough use of tape and plastic.

The next step is to have one of our team members carefully hand sand the entire door.

After the door is hand sanded our team applies the first coat of stain, Sikkens Cetol 1.

After the first layer of Sikkens has dried, we applied two coats of Sikkens Cetol 23 Plus.  This stain is applied carefully by hand with a brush, running along the grain of the wood.

At the same time, painters gave the sill the same care as the door. They chemically stripped, sanded, and stained the sill with Sikkens.  This entire job was completed in only three days, allowing enough time for each coat of Sikkens to dry in between applications.
