Why You Should Leave Door Refurbishing to the Pros
Your door takes a lot of abuse. Thousands of handprints have deposited dirt, grime, and oil. The door has been slammed shut, kicked shut, banged into, even scratched by pets wanting in (or out). How many times have you tried to move an oversized item into the home and crashed into the door? And then there’s Northern Virginia’s weather, complete with UV rays, humidity, high heat, and freezing cold. Your front door leads a tough life.
There will come a time when you either want to change the color of your front door or the entrance to your castle looks like it has warded off invading barbarians. When that time comes, you’ll want to call professional residential painting contractors like those at Reston-based All American Painting Plus.
Refurbishing an exterior door offers too many opportunities to mess up to be seriously considered for a DIY project. We’ll list some of the more obvious ones to demonstrate why you want the professional painting contractors at All American Painting Plus to tackle the task.

Just like most painting projects, preparation of the surface is the most time consuming and important part of ensuring the desired results. It’s also the step that takes the most skill and experience.
