Natural Oil( Danish Oli, Ronseal)
Water Based Paints.. to coat wooden doors
There are numerous brands on the market and we fear many are formulated to achieve a low market price rather than quality. Be sure to select one to provide a lasting seal between component parts. Avoid the use of water based finishes, using only good quality solvent based finishes that have recognised sealing properties, ensuring that it is fit for purpose for the situation & conditions in which your door is to be fitted. Follow the manufacturer,s instructions carefully and we recommend keeping a copy of the claims made for the product in the event it fails to perform. It is vital all finishing systems are applied equally to both sides and edges at the same time. Rapid changes in ambient moisture are extremely detrimental especially when unbalanced. The application of a base coat stain or a paint primer alone is not deemed to form a seal.
Oak is a byword for strength & duribilty but this should not be confused with the fact it is most vunerable and can easily be degraded if constantly exposed to rain or hot sun. Please re-treat your door regulary & remember top of door & bottom of door need treatment also
How to Measure Up for a new door
For a door to fit well into its frame, careful measurements are vital: A wee known saying..."Measure twice & Cut once" which is useful to bear in mind. If the door is a replacement door YOU do NOT measure the existing door as frames in old house are often out of square & have been trimmed & it is better to tailor your new door to fit the frame
Measure the width of the door
Take Three measurements, at the top ,middle & bottom of the frame rebate. The widest measurement determines the width of the door required
Measure the length of the door
Measure down each vertical side of the frame, again within the rebate, & the longest length determines the length of the new door. Remember to make allowances for any type of floor covering
Door size adjustments
Bear in mind that if your door frame is,nt square , that you may need to plane the door & therefore will have to re-apply finish !!
If new frames are being fitted, try to ensure that the frames are square, fitting the door will be so much quicker if you dont need to plane it first !
