We hope you'll find useful information within the site.

We often work with "New Clients" from around the country...assisting them with various Garage Door projects.

Recently we were contacted by a homeowner in the Chicago area about how to properly re-stain a door that had been very thoroughly sanded.  (See - top -photo, above.)  By way of several e-mail exchanges, the owners now have a beautiful almost 'new' garage door!

The second & third photos (above) are from another (Chicago) client whose single doors finished out superbly!
 (They had been completely sanded!)
    From this Homeowner:

Comment: We were having a very difficult time with our solid cedar garage doors. Originally, they were stained with a Minwax product (bad idea since that stain is for interior use only) and then a marine varnish. Every spring the varnish would need to be sanded since it was cracking and peeling.
   Our painter completely stripped these doors twice and then restained and revarnished them - only to find that the next spring they had to be redone.\r\n\r\nEnter The Stain professor.
   I then was fortunate enough to find Errol, The Stain Professor. He told me that we needed to completly strip the doors and to stain them with Super Deck stain. He even told me exactly which color to use to match the exterior of our home.
   Errol spent a lot of time with our painter telling him exactly how to apply the Super Deck products. After the stain he recommended using the Super Deck Frontier Finish top coat. This was last fall (2008) and now almost a year later the garage doors still look like they were just done!
    Not one area where the top coat is peeling. Errol told me we should be able to go 2-3 years before we would need to do any maintenance on these doors. I am completely convinced he is absolutely right!!
   Thanks Errol - you are the best. I'm so glad I contacted you and that we took your advice.  E-Mail:

Each of these clients were having problems with their projects and called The Stain Professor for advice!
There is no reason your (custom) Garage Door project can't end up as beautiful and satisfying as theirs!
If you have existing door(s)and are considering a complete sand-downand refinishing...please call the Stain Professor first!
I'll be happy to talk with you and your project craftsmen...to be sure all steps are proper and correct for the door(s).
Most (of these) steps are both logical and sequential...thus very important to implement once the doors have been properly sanded and prepared (for) the staining/top coating process.
Again, please don't hesitate to call...The Stain Professor wants YOUR
doors to look great AND the surface to be durable!
