Help with Therma-tru Door and wood staining?
We want the door to be all stained the same wood stain (therma-tru natural oak)So we want the door, sidelites, brick mould, Jambs and elliptical transom to be all stained-wood grain.
One supplier has priced with Oak elliptical transom, oak jambs and oak brick mould. He has also priced this with a pine wood jambs.
The other supplier says we can use the paint/stainable jambs, brick mould and transom and prime them with a Benjamin-Moore product that will give them the same color and look as the unfinished fiberglass door prior to our staining everything. He says the color will match better this way, however there will be no Oak-grain on the jambs, brick mould or transom (only oak grain on the sidelites and door itself).
Does anyone have any experience with completely staining all the components of a Therma-tru entry unit?
Any pictures of a stained door unit with transom and jambs and side lites would be great?
Thanks so much for you help!
