If there is one feature of the property that homeowners think little about, it is exterior doors. Albeit wood doors are built to last for hundreds of years, they do necessitate frequent maintenance and care.

Over a course of time, wood doors can succumb to discolorations, scratches or even mold build up. This not only affects their striking appearance but also leaves them more susceptible to moisture damage. Thankfully, there is a quick and easy fix for this problem. You can simply wipe down the doors with a soft damp cloth once every month or two to effectively get rid of stains, scratches and mold growth.

For the most adequate protection and preventive care for exterior wood doors, it is equally crucial to apply a new coat of high-quality exterior wood stain every few years. Stains designed especially for exterior wood will no doubt prevent your doors from outdoor elements, particularly the harmful UV exposure that works to wear down the strength of the door coating. Because there is a bewildering range of stains available on the market right now, you may need to ask a specialist who knows a thing or two about wood and wood care.

General TLC

At last, the best thing you can do to keep your exterior wood doors looking their best is to be cautious throughout the year. Do your best to avoid getting the doors scraped or knocked by heavy objects since it may not only affect the general sturdiness of the wood but also make the wood more exposed to moisture each time the door's finish is penetrated. You may also want to cover the door when you are moving large or pointed objects in and out of the house. You can do this with some padding or a blanket. This will undoubtedly help prevent some of the most common dents and scratches that doors are likely to get over time. And if anything happens, you can simply apply a fresh coat of a high-quality wood stain such as Exterior 450 in order to conceal minor imperfections in your wood door.

In conclusion, by following a recurring maintenance regimen of cleaning, staining, and general TLC, you can enhance the appearance and durability of your exterior wood doors so that they last well through the ages, looking just as timeless and beautiful as they do today.
