High maintenance on stained wood front door is driving me crazy!
I have a stained wood front entry door which is sheltered from rain, but not from the *sun*. Thus far, we have had to do a stain touch up & varnish every six months. We've used Marine Spar varnish. It has become such a chore. Are there any measures we could take to extend the maintenance requirements? Would waxing the door post-varnish make a difference? Is there a better product out there than spar varnish?
The door is about three and a half years old, and cost over $5000, so, although I'm tempted to do so, I can't get rid of it just yet...
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated:)
