Outside door knobs sun faded

jaxoJuly 28, 2008

Is there any way to restore the appearance of door knobs and door handles that have been exposed to the weather for 7 years?

They are the orginal door locks installed by the tract home builder in 2001 and are brass or some metal that was given a brass-like appearance. They are faded and discolored from the sun.

I was thinking of buying new ones, but I thought there maybe be some way to clean up the appearance.

Buy new Emtek with Lifetime Finish and mechanical warranty. You'll spend less in the long run, and have an attractive and high performance handset/deadbolt.
