Instead of applying another coat of paint to your front door, strip the old paint or varnish and then refinish the door, making your door look new again. You could apply a fresh coat of paint to your door. But if your door is made of real, high-quality wood and you want to highlight its natural color and grain, you can varnish it.  

Doors, especially wooden doors, are very vulnerable to damage from environmental elements such as moisture and sunlight. These elements can cause changes to the wood that could warp or otherwise damage it. This is why varnishing your doors is essential, as it can provide protection against these environmental threats, not to mention bring out your wooden door’s natural color, grain, and overall beauty.

At Custom Painting, Inc., we want to make sure that your front door looks its best. Yes, we do more than just paint interior and interior walls. We have the skills, experience, and tools, as well as follow a process that is proven to give your doors the best possible results.
