All exterior woodwork especially doors need maintenance every few years. Due to years of exposure to the harsh weather extremes can cause the finish and wood to deteriorate in as little as a few years.
Is your exterior woodwork correctly cared for?
Take a closer look......
Is the finish dull, faded or gray?
Is the wood rough or dry to the touch?
Is the color washed-out and finish peeling?
When I am asked this question I nearly always hesitate. Often, the answer is not so clear cut. Lets start with the obvious. You have a dining room table that cost $2500.00 new, is mahogany veneer on a solid substrate, and the finish is worn out. You also happen to like the table and it fits your living room and matches your server. This table is clearly worth refinishing. We can give you a new finish, color match it to the rest of the furniture, and the finish will be twice as durable as what you had before.
