Mahogany Front Door Refinishing

Mahogany Front Door Refinishing


Scope of work: Door Refinishing
Location: Basking Ridge, NJ  07920
Timeline: 3 days

Natural solid wood doors are beautiful, but they require some maintenance. Unlike fiberglass doors, wood doors will need to be sealed throughout its life. These beautiful mahogany wood double doors in Basking Ridge, NJ were ready to be refinished. Despite being located underneath a portico, rain had left water marks on the dark wood. Nothing that Monk’s painters couldn’t make beautiful again.


Mahogany Front Door Refinishing


In order to restore this home’s front doors to their original condition, first we completely stripped the doors. Then we lightly sanded them to the bare wood by hand. After sanding, we applied a base coat of Sikkens Cetol 1 to the double doors. Once the base coat had dried, we lightly sanded and cleaned the door. When we freed the door of any sawdust, we applied a coat of Sikkens Cetol 23. This process (lightly sanding and cleaning) was repeated once more before applying the final coat of Sikkens Cetol 23.
