Refinishing Entry Doors- Los Angeles, CA

The entry doors pictured below received the same treatment as the garage doors in the previous post.

We stood the doors up to spray because catalyzed polyurethane is an oil based product (slow to dry) and will attract dust like a magnet. By standing them up with the fan positioned to pull air (and dust) away from the surface of the door we achieved a silky smooth finish.

We sprayed one side, let the doors dry a few hours, rehung them and did the other side the following day.

About jody toole

Jody Toole began his career in the painting and finishing industry in the early 1970's. In 1978 he was issued Contractor's License # 357067 (Class C33 Painting & Decorating) by the state of California. At this time he and a partner ran a painting & finishing business. In 1986 Mr. Toole, along with his partner, co-authored a book for painting contractors- Paint Contractor's Manual. As of this writing Paint Contractors Manual is still in print and to date has sold almost 40,000 copies. Today Mr. Toole runs Jody Toole's Professional Finishes as the sole owner. When asked to describe what his company does this is what he had to say- " We put color on wood. We hand mix stains and glazes. We do color matching, distressing, antiquing, refinishing, painted finishes and paint & glaze finishes. Some of the 'looks' we create are Tuscany, French Country, Italian Classic, Rustic, and traditional paint & glaze finishes." And his guiding philosophy- " Get the color right. Above all else, get the color right. And then get the "look." And when these two are right and your customer is beaming then give them a long-lasting durable finish."
