refinishing a hardwood threashold

jim1022May 19, 2009

i have an hardwood threashold at my back door. (6" x 4', oak, stained). it gets lots of afternoon sun, and rain. what type of protection should i put on it? it is 2 yrs old, i originally used an exterior poly, but that seems to be deteriorating and the wood is getting water on it. should i use a different poly, or a marine varnish, or what?

also, can i just sand off the original poly, restain the wood, and put the new finish on?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Storm door or plan on refinishing every couple years.

Spar varnish might hold up a little better, but it often needs maintenance every year or so.
