Wooden Doors Restored to Perfect Condition in Boulder, CO

New Wood / Old Wood: Different Colors
These wooden garage and side entry doors were damaged in a terrific thunderstorm a few months back.
The surprising thing is that the damage wasn’t caused by the storm itself, but rather by a panicked dog who tried to claw its way back into the house. Some wood was repaired and some replaced, but the difference in color and tone between the old and new sections of the door left an eyesore.
First the doors were thoroughly cleaned with nylon scrub brushes to remove any dust. Particular attention was given to the “V” of the X shape, as collected dust will prevent the stain from sealing into the wood and create an ugly finish when dry.
Wood Stain Selection: Exterior Staining and an Artistic Eye
Karen’s Company hand-selected a matching stain closest to the existing door color. They chose to use a Sikkens SRD Natural Color stain for this project.
Good as New! Wooden Garage Door Stain and Refinish Project Completed
The new sections of wood were stained first, after which the painter moved on to coat the original sections while the first coat dried. The new boards were then given a second coat, which stained them to the same level as the older, more weathered boards.
The result was beautiful, restored, and matched!
