Wooden Doors

The sheer beauty of wooden doors ensure that they have been, and always will be a firm favorite amongst many property owners. Wooden doors can be painted or stained, and are strong and easy to work with. Ease-of-use makes for easier custom doors, which is why highly detailed door designs are typically made from wood. With regard to energy efficiency, few materials are better insulators than wood.

The only downside to using wooden doors is that they require regular maintenance. Peeling paint is more than an eyesore, it's a sign that wood is being exposed to weather, which will ultimately cause it to rot. A small number of high-end producers use rot-resistant species like mahogany, but most domestically manufactured doors are made from less-resistant wood species such as pine. That said, a properly maintained wooden door could last hundreds of years.

Maintenance of wooden doors:

Wooden doors are designed and engineered to meet the requirements and expectations
of modern living and construction. Any high-performance, engineered product - whether it is a boiler,
washing machine, car or door (of any material) – will need some form of maintenance in order to ensure
its long life. Failure to keep to a planned maintenance schedule may at best ruin the wooden door’s appearance and, at worst, could lead to the early deterioration of the components.
The natural beauty of wood as a material for doors means that, if maintenance is carried out regularly,
it will retain its visual appeal for a lifetime.

What you need to maintain on a wooden door:
Unless correctly maintained, there is a reasonable chance that anything in a product that can go wrong will
go wrong. It is therefore necessary to check all aspects of a wooden door. The most important elements to
maintain are the coating system and the hardware. However, it is advisable to check the whole door
(interior and exterior) for any signs of deterioration. If there are any causes for concern, follow these guidelines. If the problem persists, contact the door manufacturer.
The type and level of maintenance required will depend on the wooden door’s location and exposure to the
weather.

A few guidelines for maintenance of wooden doors:

Mould and algae - All wooden doors can suffer from mould and algae caused by airborne spores, which settle on the surface. To remove mould and algae, wash with a solution of one part bleach to two parts water, and leave for 20 minutes to work. Then rinse. If the blemish is stubborn, scrub with a stiff nylon bristle (not metallic) brush.
Cleaning and washing - Wash with hot water and liquid detergent every 6 months. Rinse with clean
water. During this process it is advisable to inspect all components of the door for defects and take action
if necessary.
Damage - If any part of the door’s coating system is damaged to the point of showing bare wood, contact the manufacturer to find out which is the appropriate coating material to use and their practical instructions on how to maintain it.

Re-decorating wooden widows:

All products deteriorate over time and this is particularly true of those that are exposed to the elements.
Wind, rain and sunlight – not to mention wind-borne spores and insects – all contribute to the breakdown
and deterioration of all materials’ appearance. It is therefore important to protect your wooden doors by putting a barrier between them and the elements.

The beauty of re-coating wooden doors is that when they are done, they look brand
new again.

When the surfaces of your wooden doors become damaged or exposed to the elements, contact the manufacturer to find out what the best procedure is to prepare the wood for re-decorating, and which sealants are best to use.
