Before your guests even walk through the entryway into your home, they have already formed an opinion on your home. Same is true when you are selling your house. Realtors know all too well about buyers making a decision on not liking a door before they even get out of the car. It is so hard to overcome that initial impression, especially when your front wood door is old and weathered.


Don't let this happen to you! Before listing your home for sale, invest a few hundred dollars into refinishing your front door. Not only will your house sell faster but it will bring a higher selling price.


Because we know how important the curb appeal is and how time sensitive it is to get your residence listed on the MLS. We will always go above and beyond for our local realtors. We normally have a waitlist of about 2-3 weeks. But for new listings, we will make them our top priority and bump them to the top of the list! That way your listing photos will be as amazing as the offers you get!


We can also freshen up the paint or change the paint color of your front door. A paint color change can usually be done in a single day! We took the door below from dreary to inviting.

This set of wood garage doors in Old Metairie have seen better days! The other garage door looks just as weathered. You can clearly see the effects of sun exposure on this door. Notice the top of the door is protected by a few feet of overhang, just enough to shield the UV. The bottom 2/3 of the door wasn't as lucky.


This is a perfect example of why it's so important to use a good product and apply multiple coats. Polyurethane just won't do in the South. We have too much humidity and heat. Polyurethane becomes brittle and will eventually crack. You need a product that's flexible and will bend and stretch as the wood swells and contracts. Cracks in polyurethane is why we see so much wood damage to doors. Those little cracks allow water to penetrate to the wood and under the polyurethane. So your not only getting damage from the sun but moisture damage from within also. The only way to correct the problem is to sand, stain and varnish.


Too many door refinishing companies in the New Orleans area are using inferior products. We ONLY use Spar Marine Grade varnish and never less than 3 layers! Yes, this means that we need to come back for three days in a row but it is so worth the extra effort. The door's finish will last several years longer.


Check back in a few days to see the final results of this garage door restoration in Metairie!
