Things to know about your new custom hardwood door.
Nick's Building Supply Inc. goes to great lengths to bring our customers custom hardwood doors factory direct. When purchasing an unfinished wood door it is very important that the door is finished properly and in a timely fashion. Remember your door may have spent several days in transit to you and is no longer in our climate controlled facility. You should try to finish your door within 72 hours of receiving it. Wood is a natural product and is only as good as its protective finish. Choosing the proper finish for your application is important whether it be interior wood doors or exterior wood doors. Your doors should always be prefinished prior to installation.

  • Sand entire door system on all six sides with 220 grit sanding sponge or paper.

  • After even coat is applied wipe down with rag to achieve the desired stain color of wood door.

  • Apply first top coat or sealer (depending on product used).

  • Allow drying time.

  • Repeat process on other side.

  • Sand entire wood door with 220 grit until all surfaces are scuffed up (this gives a good surface for product to adhere to).

  • Wipe down with rag to remove dust.

  • Repeat process 3 to 5 times per side on exterior wood doors, interior wood doors require only 1 to 2 coats of finish.

  • Once you have applied the desired amount of coats of finish, the last one is your final finish coat.

  • These techniques can be used with most products on the market, but be sure to talk to your local stain and finish provider. Remember the finish will determine the amount of maintenance your door will require over time. Generally the better the finish means more time can pass between the maintenance coats. The life expectancy varies between the different wood finishing products.
