Exterior Door Finishes


Clear is what I desire, I could even clear over stain.
No song and dance about marine grade epoxy.
No shellac, no tung oil, no paint.

What can one do?

I think I have an idea.

I have seen Waterlox used...it does contain tung oil but is much more durable and able to shed moisture.

Most of the time I use Polyacrylic from Minwax because that is the product spec'd..
Easy peasy application with great durability.







Have you ever considered marine grade epoxy?

Re: Exterior Door Finishes


Yes, I have looked at numerous products, looked at numerous doors that my buddy has made, finished and installed. No matter what the finish after about 3 years they all need re-finished.

Re: Exterior Door Finishes


I am almost done with this door, I will post some pictures and see what everyone thinks of my 'new' idea of finishing an exterior stained door.

It is a 2 part process I will lead on to that much.
