New doors and windows are the first thing people see when they visit and are exciting home investments. They enhance the style and functionality of your home, giving it a face lift, improving its energy efficiency and keeping the elements at bay. Choosing high quality products and entrusting our craftsmen to install them correctly is only the first step. What is often overlooked is the importance of finishing them properly with a good quality stain or paint job.
On a poor paint job your attention may be drawn to runs and drips, visible brush strokes, and uneven finishes. A good quality job will enhance the beauty of the windows and doors and protect them well over time.
We live in a wet climate and moisture is not a friend to wood. So ensuring that all edges of your door are
sealed is essential to preventing it from wicking moisture into the wood causing damage. Properly painting the edges of windows and where the wood meets the glass is also critical to ensuring they last.
Finishing the job with a high quality paint or stain job, along with periodic refinishing, is your insurance policy protecting your investment.
