Help! Wood front door looks terrible!
We've been told by several people there is nothing we can do but paint our front door, which we really don't want to do! Our overhang (appx. 6 1/2 feet) isn't enough to provide shelter from the sun and with the door facing East we get plenty of intense morning/early afternoon heat. It's obvious when looking at the door that the sun damage is the cause as the lower portion looks horrible, while the upper portion looks like new. Isn't there some sort of product to use to protect the door from harmful rays? We're dreading the thought of having to paint our beautiful entry door. By the way...the door is fir and we live in Central Washington (state). Thanks for any advice ~ it'll be greatly appreciated...even if you say our only hope is to paint the door. :-)
