Whether you want to refresh the finish on your external doors or change it entirely you should contact a professional to carry out the job. Not only will they be able to advise you on the best paints or varnishes to use to update your door, but they will also be able to carry out inexpensive repairs and touch-ups to the current décor.
In the case of polishing, your painter or door expert will have the right brushes and oils to hand to protect your door and give it a good finish. If adding a new varnish they will rub the door down before applying any oils and varnishes and sealing with at least one coat of varnish. Much the same is true of painting your front door, which will require a similar level of preparation and rubbing down before a painter can add a new colour or refresh your current one.
The cost of the job and the amount of preparation needed will largely depend upon whether you need the whole door repainting or re-varnishing, as well as the paints or varnishes you wish your tradesman to use. This may be dictated by your own taste, the state of repair of your door or advice from your tradesman. It is worth spending a little more to get good quality finishes, especially as your front door is your front line of security and a sound door will continue to protect your home for many years.
