Prof. Refinished Door: How Long Should Finish Last?
Hi, all. We had our 1988 front door (oversized, with transom and two sidelites inset with leaded glass) professionally refinished in 6/2008 for $1,350. The project took two full days and included the interior and exterior. The door is solid oak. The finish on the exterior threshold is failing. How long would you expect the finish on a refinished door to last? Were we supposed to do some sort of maintenance on the door? Any insight appreciated.
