Finishing components of a door unit separately produces much more consistent results than when finishing a pre-assembled door unit. Each step in the carefully controlled process is crucial to crafting the most authentic, longest-lasting finish possible.
Step 1 – Meticulous Preparation
Each door is carefully inspected and prepared for the staining process prior to entering the coating area. All components are wiped clean, glass is taped-off and edges are prepared to ensure proper base coat application.
Step 2 – Base Coat Application
All components are inspected a second time before receiving the base coat that will serve as the foundation of the door’s final color.
Step 3 – Stain Application
Stain coat is applied and hand-brushed by skilled Reeb Finish artisans to replicate the attractive color variations and inconsistencies found in real wood. This enhances the intricate grain patterns and deep embossments found in Therma-Tru fiberglass doors.
Step 4 – First Top Coat Application
The preliminary top coat seals the finish and enhances the colors highlighted in the staining process, adding durability and sheen to the final product.
Step 5 – Second Top Coat Application
The second top coat further accentuates the unique beauty of the finished product and is essential to provide maximum durability and protection from the elements.
Step 6 – Assembly
The finished door components are inspected a third time to ensure accuracy and consistency. Any necessary touch-ups are applied and the door unit is carefully assembled and packaged for delivery.
