Garage Door Restoration
About This Project:
Assessment: During this repeat client’s initial project with LIME, the Advisor noticed that their garage doors were darkened from water mildew stains and had a faded chalky color to them. LIME mentioned that we could make those look great again, and after a stellar job on this client’s first project, LIME returned a month later to service the garage doors.
Advice: LIME offered two options for this client’s garage doors dependent upon their desired aesthetic look and the durability level, which goes hand in hand with cost. The homeowner opted for the premium products and two-coat process, which was what LIME advised was the best option. This included sanding the doors down to a new wood profile with a combination of palm power sanders and taking the time to meticulously hand sand the cracks in each slit. LIME followed that up by staining the doors with the premium door stain Sikkens Door and Window in dark oak. When it was dry, LIME then applied a top coat of Sikkens Door and Window clear coat in a satin finish. This gave the door a furniture-like finish and extreme durability. Now all the homeowner has to do in order to maintain the door’s beauty is apply the clear coat when it begins to wear.
