Scope of work: Door Staining
Location: Chatham, NJ 07928
Timeline: 3 days
Staining is a process used not only to give your home a lustrous finish and a great look, but also to treat and protect the wood. Shortly after these homeowners purchased their new Chatham, NJ home they called our team at Monk’s to come out and stain their garage doors and front door.
Garage Door Refinishing
When our team arrived on the job and examined the mahogany doors it was determined that the current staining job was too worn out to do anything but strip both the garage doors and the front door and start from the beginning.
All of the original stain was chemically stripped from the doors; leaving the garage doors and front door as bare wood.
The doors were carefully cleaned and hand sanded before the stain was applied.
The doors were given one coat of minwax stain, followed by two coats of Sikkens cetol 123. The Sikkens stain not only gives the doors a rich color but also treats and protects the wood of the doors.
In only a few days the doors had been completely stripped, sanded, and re-stained! Another job well done by Monk’s!
