Frequently Asked Questions
What is a finish?
A finish, in DIY terms, is the final application of a protective layer to your project. Once the surface is prepared, it is then stained/oiled and painted – finishing the job!
What kinds of finishes are there?
At Shawfield Doors, we supply a variety of products for your finish. We have the basics: brushes and finishing pads. These will help you apply your coatings and allow you to sand down and smooth out imperfections pre-application. Alongside this, we have wood fillers available to take care of those little nicks and scratches that are too deep to sand out. We believe that one of the best finishes for any door is a natural wood oil, which you can find for sale right here!
Do I need to sand my door before applying a finish?
Typically, unfinished doors are supplied ready to apply your finish of choice without the need for additional preparation. If the surface of your door is not to your taste, you can choose to sand areas further if you wish, but this is typically not necessary. If you are looking to apply a new finish to a glossed door, then in that case you would be required to sand away the finishing coat of gloss.
Why should I apply a finish to my door?
Simply put – wood is a porous material. Any dirt, water, and bacteria will naturally be soaked into the woodgrain over time if the material is left to the elements. The addition of a finish helps to give the wood a protective layer – and in the case of oils also allows the wood to strengthen itself against these unwanted blemishes. Certain oils can also enhance the natural colour of the wood, creating an overall more beautiful door. Not a bad payoff for protecting it, if we do say so ourselves!
