Exterior Wood Doors/Trim

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be cured, clean, sound, dry and free of all dirt, dust, efflorescence, wax, oil, grease, chalk and any other contamination that would interfere with new coating adhesion. Patch all nail holes, cracks and imperfections with exterior spackling compound. Sand and wipe clean. Woods subject to tannin bleeding should be primed with a stain blocking primer. Performance will be directly related to the degree of surface preparation.
